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.

Uli Emanuele pilots what is possibly the most technical and difficult BASE jump ever. For the past 3 years Uli has been dreaming about and preparing for what could be a world record jump. With just his wingsuit and hiking poles, he climbs to his exit point and realizes there is no turning back.
The video opens with an enthusiastic Emanuele hiking up to a rugged mountain, situated in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Pulling on his blue wing suit, the daredevil adjusts his goggles before taking time to check over his kit for one final time before the jump. With one big leap, Emanuele jumps off the edge of the mountain side and immediately the scale of his ambitious stunt becomes apparent as the small hole comes into site.
The wing suit immediately kicks into action and the spectacular views of the valley emerges.
Making a slight turn, the daredevil lines himself up for a near impossible flight through the cave and in a flash, he soars through the mini hole. Several different angles are shown of the daredevil making the fiendish stunt.
One slow motion sequence shot shows how close the daredevil came to crashing into the rock face.
Swooping over the lush green mountain side, the jubilant daredevil celebrates his remarkable stunt. Releasing his parachute, Emanuele lands safety in the grass, near an wooden hut. Despite the adrenaline filled achievement, the relaxed daredevil is even seen at the end taking time to talk to several alpacas.
Emanuele told Geeky Gadgets: ‘I found this hole three years ago. At that moment it was impossible to fly through.’
‘After three years of hard training I was ready for it. I opened two different exits. I flew through the hole four times. That is the smallest hole ever flown through by anyone.’
The remarkable stunt was successfully carried out in September 2014, with the footage only emerging recently on to social media. The video has already attracted nearly a quarter of a million views.
