Cyberloafing - Grinding The Crack
For as long as he can remember, Jeb Corliss has dreamed of flying. One of his earliest memories came when he was 6 and sitting in the back of his aunt’s car watching birds jump from telephone poles, opening their wings and soaring. “When I get older, I’m going to do that,” he said. His aunt explained that when he got older he would realise that humans can’t fly. “Maybe you can’t,” he replied, “but I’m going to.”
To add an extra layer of challenge, to push the bounds of his ability, and further slice the razor slim margin for error, he has performed the challenge of BASE-jumping with wingsuits, flying along some of the most stunning and dangerous mountain terrain. In the nearest approximation of human flight yet, wingsuits (which are more flying squirrel than bird or plane) allow the best pilots to trace the contours of cliffs, ridges, and mountainsides at high speed. All of which makes for an incredible spectacle.
Watch this spectacular footage below of Corliss flying just inches above the ground in the Swiss Alps as he ‘grinds’ The Crack below.
He’s obviously as mad a box of frogs, but this footage falls into the category of once seen, never forgotten.
