Alex Honnold deliberately jumps off cliffs and mountains without a chute? How does he survive?

The guy at 4:10 is named Dean Potter. He came up with the idea of free soloing the biggest climbs in the world with a parachute. Super sick. Alex Honnold does the same thing though, just without the chute.

The free-climber was wearing a harness that included a backpack.

There are people who free-climb specifically in order to BASE jump off the thing they`ve climbed.

The harness and backpack he`s wearing looks like the kit those people wear.

So I think he`s probably doing that, jumped deliberately and landed safely.

Where can I find a snowboard with handles like a scooter (1:14)? That would be fun!
