Had to look away a few times because of my fear of heights :)

(You have to take away the s in http(s) otherwise it won't embed)

Ah yes, thanks kallefs. Maybe this could be added to the instructions in the thread about embedding. Right now it says to insert the complete youtube URL between the youtube-tags,
in the example there's no s but that's easy to miss...

Thanks for posting!
I would say those guys are crazy, but probably they're just supremely confident in their own outstanding abilities and not afraid of a few crashes! Always amazes me what some humans are capable of!

However seems the star of the vid Martyn Ashton had a terrible accident 3months ago and is now a paraplegic. But not sure if his spinal cord was severed or not (they said "dislocated" so perhaps its just severely damaged) so hopefully he'll be able to improve given time? :(

That's terrible.. :( I wonder how much people who do these extreme things really think about the possibility of something like this happening to them ? I have a feeling they think along the lines of "if I die, at least I die happy" but maybe not so much about what it would be like to get seriously disabled.
