Want to learn what it takes to get into BASE jumping? I have no interest in trying this sport myself, but am fascinated with the men and women who do it. That’s why this video was so interesting, as it gives us insights into the basics of BASE jumping from someone who is a trailblazer in this activity. Espen Fadnes is a Norwegian jumper and wingsuit pilot who also happens to be a backcountry skier, climber, and more. He has even helped develop some of the equipment and skills that are used in the sport today. In this clip, he describes everything you need to know if you want to join in on the action.
