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

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.
