Neil Amonson is a rare individual – a BASE jumper who is scared of heights. You’d never know it from watching this video, in which the gutsy ‘human flight athlete’ performs a solo BASE jump for GoPro.
The clip shows Amonson travelling to Germany to find solitude in his craft. Is BASE jumping alone insane? Maybe, but Amonson swears it’s the most fulfilling way to take the plunge. “To actually experience all the things I’m feeling,” he says, “I have to do it alone.”
Watch the video for an inside look at the incredible experience Amonson goes through as he sets out to accomplish this solo BASE jump. The dizzying view will leave your keyboard drenched in sweat.
