    Incredible. The last part got me nervous too,lol. I`m so afraid of heights. I never used to be. I don`t know what happened. I`m a big chicken sh*t now.

    as mentioned, this is paragliding. Also, everyone knows it`s possible to use a parachute without a plane, it`s called base jumping.

    The vid was cool though

    Of course you don`t need a plane. You just need balls and bail money for when you get arrested.

    They do this in San Diego at the Glider Port. Just walk off the cliff.
    The wind off the ocean is funneled up the cliffside.

    That looks fake. I know for a fact floating letters don`t occur randomly in nature.

    that`s totally awesome.. if you could do that all day you could get so good at it! It`s kind of like how he`s finding the updrafts, like you could in the hangliding game in pilotwings for SNES. man i`d love to try it out!

    This is called paragliding, it works similar as to hang gliding but less of a need for thermal drafts to keep afloat.
