Jokke Sommer in Benidorm

Jokke Sommer and friends adventure into Spain to jump off buildings in Benidorm.

Jokke Sommer is a professional skydiver and BASE jumper. He has always been fascinated by everything that could fly and dreamed one day to fly himself. When he matured his childhood dream faded and he started a career in Motocross. This sport became his biggest passion and an important part of his youth. After several years of riding, he started to Freestyle and built his own FMX park where he and his friends met to ride and fly.

During the summer of 2007 he and his close friend Jørgen decided, to start skydiving and they completed an AFF skydiving course. He sold his dirt bikes and became licensed skydiver. In 2008 he travelled to the United States and completed 250 jumps in two months to gain the required experience. After watching dozens of wing-suit flying videos, he had no doubt that this was what he wanted to do.

His non-jumping spare time was spent researching BASE Jumping

After returning to Norway he signed up for a BASE jumping course and travelled to Kjerag to make his first jump. Starting to BASE jump changed his life and his determination made him an expert athlete in the sport.

Benidorm is a city in the province of Alicante in eastern Spain, on the Mediterranean coast. Until the 1960s, Benidorm was a small fishing village; today it is known for its hotel industry, beaches and skyscrapers. According to the 2014 census, Benidorm has a permanent population of 69,010 inhabitants, making it the fifth most populous town in the Alicante province. Benidorm has the most high-rise buildings per capita in the world.

WWL Flight Line

“Flight Line” – The awesome new wingsuit series by WWL with the best wingsuit pilots in the world. Ep 5 starring Jokke Sommer.

“Flight Line” Ep 5: Jokke Sommer started skydiving in the summer of 2007 with the modest goal of having fun with a sport he had dreamed of doing for many years. He liked it so much that he wanted more and eight months after he started, he went to the USA for two months to make enough skydives to start BASE jumping. When he stepped off the edge of a 1,000-meter cliff in Kjeragt, Norway, a few months later, he knew that he had found his biggest passion in life. Jokke soon became known around the world as one of the most intense, driven wingsuit BASE jumpers around, and he just as quickly set new standards for aggressive flight lines and proximity flying. Jokke placed 10th in the 2012 Grand Prix and he is again certain to be one of the most intense competitors at this year’s race – and one of the funniest too!

The World Wingsuit League (WWL) was formed to meet the demand of “proximity flyers” for competitions that tested their skills not just against the mountains but against each other. It administers invitational wingsuit flying competition events worldwide.
