Wingsuit jumping is when a diver has flaps below their arms and between their legs, enabling them to essentially “fly.” This is definitely another don’t try this at home. However, Ludovic Woerth & Jokke Sommer did. Watch the pair wingsuit flying into Rio de Janeiro without the permission of the city. According to the description, the two tried the stunt early in the morning before the first airplane of the day.
How are they multitasking trying to not pee from fear and recording their experience. I would only be able to do one at a time.
This “ExtremeLation” compilation posted on CompilarizTV showcases some of the most impressive athletes in extreme sports. While part of it makes me feel totally inferior with my lack of coordination, flexibility and strength, it also makes me amazed at what we’re capable of. The scenes are breathtaking — skydivers flying through beautiful green pastures and kayakers breaking through huge waves. While I won’t be jumping off a huge, powdery slope anytime soon, a girl can dream!
If you haven’t seen the second season of Nitro Circus (which premiered last Thursday at 10 p.m. on MTV), you’re missing out on a half hour of reckless stunts and pure adrenaline. Among the group of record-breaking dirtbikers is Jolene Van Vugt, the only Canadian female member.
Very few people know what they want to do with their lives when they’re still a kid. Jolene, or “Nitro Girl,” is one of those people. She was raised around the Motorcross sport and spent most of her time at the tracks. By the age of 11, Jolene asked her father to teach her how to ride. “But I didn’t start to compete till I was 15,” she tells andPOP.
Since the age of 15, Jolene has been traveling across North America, attending competitions in the CMRC, AMA, WMA and the National Series for Women in Canada, which she helped create. “It started four years ago and I was the first to win the event,” Van Vugt says of the National Series. “It’s a series of five races that cover from the east to the west coast and the top Canadian females race.”
