On his last trip, he ended up on a Wingsuit Base Jumping film shoot in Switzerland for an epic watch company. Among the many disciplines that exist within extreme sports, the flight in wingsuit is starting to sound a lot, which explains, because it is becoming common to use images or shows of this sport in commercial brands.
I know that many of you will wonder what makes the Wingsuit so exciting?
The answer is easy, live the freedom to leave your world even for a moment. That insatiable desire to immerse oneself in an absolutely unknown and mysterious world, to learn new cultures, to meet new people, to make friends all over the world, has a particular magic like that of each place that one travels.
For many, traveling is a dream. You will be surprised to know that there are millions of people, who one day decided to leave their bonds, take their backpacks and take a trip.
The freedom you experience when traveling, is very similar to the one you feel in mid-flight, or a free fall jump, that’s why, those who practice these sports, travel constantly to find new paradises with which to delight, discover new places, that for far or near you are invited to find each corner impregnated with smells, colors, flavors, people and rhythms that, however strange they may be, feel like your home.
From this, great trips and incredible adventures, anecdotes and unique experiences have emerged and in some cases, the trip itself has changed their lives. In any case, for all of them it has been a great story to tell. Wingsuit flying is a high-risk sport that causes concern and rage throughout the world. Then, traveling, flying … is the most extreme experience you can experience.
Those who like “wingsuit” say that part of the beauty of this balance that can last a couple of minutes at high speed, lies in flying very close to the contour of a mountain for several kilometers and landing using a parachute. It is possible to see these athletes plan very close to mountains, trees and even the ground as if they were birds.
There is something special that leads an athlete to perform high risk actions, it is the passion for a practice that they expect to come out well and the reason that feeds them the desire to move forward looking for new limits.
