I Think I Want A Wingsuit For Christmas

I’ve posted some Wingsuit videos before, and they never fail to amaze. The one below is certainly no exception, even if you only catch the first four or five seconds. That small segment of video is enough to give you a true sense of speed that these flying daredevils travel at. The remaining four plus minutes are simply icing on the cake. Enjoy!

Thanks to the Wend Blog for the tip on this one.

  1. Even if you get one, what are you going to do with it ? 🙂 It's not a bike or a kayak that you buy and you are ready to go…

    I think it's one of the few activities that are not for mere mortals…

    I was thinking about writing a post about wingsuit training…though, most schools are in Europe.

    I would love to try that myself, but for now, I think I'll try paragliding first…it's cheaper and easier to learn

  2. Paul: I think I like the *idea* of a wingsuit more than I do the actual thought of using one. You're right, it's not something you just head out the door and start using. Still looks like a blast though!

    Daniel: I agree! Pretty scary how close they get, but amazing too. The guys in this video are clearly well trained in how to use the suit.
