Wingsuit Gliding through the ‘Crack’ Gorge in Switzerland
Soaring at speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour, Belgium BASE jumper Cedric Dumont has embarked on his latest conquest – taming the ‘Crack’ gorge in Switzerland’s beautiful Churfirsten mountains.
During his two minute descent Dumont is seen only meters from the rock face.
Churfirsten is a mountain range in the Canton of St. Gallen, Switzerland. They form the natural boundary between the canton’s Toggenburg and Sarganserland districts. They are the southernmost range of the Appenzell Alps, separated from the Glarus Alps by the Seez river and Lake Walen. They consist of a limestone ridge running east to west, with the individual peaks formed by erosion. The ridge is defined much more sharply to the south than to the north, with an almost vertical drop of several hundred meters towards Walenstadtberg and eventually Lake Walen at 419 m. The southern slope of the range was significantly formed by the Rhine Glacier during the Würm glaciation.

BASE jump, Speedfly – Lauterbrunnen area, Switzerland
The second installment of the Euroland canopy adventures takes place mainly in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. Sloppy aerials, wingsuit flights, waterfall speedflights, and (dis)tasteful male nudity all occurred in spades. I’m forever thankful to my “special” friends for helping me seem normalish. Also, a shout out to Freeboern Air Sports and EraThr3 for enabling my summer silliness.

A Wingsuit documentary about Jeb Corliss directed and produced by Iiro Seppänen
January 2012, Jeb Corliss, the world’s most recognized wingsuit pilot, miraculously survived a terminal velocity wingsuit accident at Table Mountain, South Africa. For the first time ever, you will get to hear what really happened and witness never-before-seen angles from this tragic accident.
Because of his accident, Jeb endured painful operations and physiotherapy in order to get to his next mission: to fly through a narrow crack in the Jianglang Mountains in China’s Zhejian Province, which is only 60 feet (18m) wide at the top and 15 feet (4.5m) at the bottom. “Flying Dagger” gives an up-close and personal insight into the career and achievements of Corliss in the lead up to this spectacular flight. This film is an inspiring story about redemption, a man’s journey to face his demons, to fulfill his dreams and strong determination to make them a reality.
Jeb Corliss – One of the world’s foremost and best known BASEjumper / Wingsuit pilots, Jeb Corliss has dedicated his life to “Human flight”. With over 1,200 jumps under his belt, he has hurled himself off of spectacular venues including from the top of the Eiffel Tower, The Golden Gate Bridge and The Petronas Towers in Malaysia, to name a few. Jeb Corliss is also a motivational speaker, Stunt Artist/Advisor (most recently on the set of the new Point Break film) as well as special appearances in film, television and live events (Including Super Bowl XXXVIII).
Two BASE Jumpers Throw Themselves Off 48th Floor In The Heart Of London
EpicTV Choice Cuts
We recently received an anonymous video from two London BASE jumpers who had just completed a pretty cloak and dagger stunt from a classy London rooftop bar. Their mission was to find an un-jumped exit within London city limits. Finding a tall building to BASE jump from wasn’t hard but finding one they could get access to… well, that was another story. Eventually they found a swanky rooftop bar near Canary Wharf which fit the bill perfectly. They did the proper reconnaissance, then they marched in and jumped out the window. Maybe not quite as peaceful and contemplative as opening a new exit in nature, but it makes for one helluva story.
