Cool video, but not my idea of a good time.

What I found disturbing is the video showing birth and death years of the people in the videos. I think I'll try something safer, or at least not do "thread the needle" stunts. All it takes is an unexpected crosswind and you're dead.

Hey, I still ride motorcycles, and go snow skiing, but not in a way that's suicidal.

Try riding a motorcycle here on the CA highways and say it's not suicidal. :P

How boring their lives must seem when they’re doing anything else.

Those people have a lot more courage than I do but a lot less sense, IMHO.

This is what you do when you've run out of things to thrill you. Fun to watch the video and probably exhilarating to do. However, make one tiny mistake and you're toast. Y'all can do it, but I'll keep my feet on the ground.

Thanks for sharing the video! They say you are never so alive as when you are close to death. I have come close a couple of times and I was just scared nearly witless.
Redbull has always had a huge presence in action sports and sponsors almost anything really dangerous. I ran into them while snow skiing and they are an insane crowd but also a lot of fun to hang with. Sad to see how many and how young these people are when they were killed. At least the end was quick if not messy.
Dubai looks really cool! The kingdom is led by a benign monarchy that actually cares about its citizens welfare, they know there oil reserves will run out in about 50 years and taking measures to keep the money flowing and the citizens employed. Dubai is the Los Vegas of the middle-east and receives a lot of tourists from surrounding countries with more repressive governments...

It was interesting that they never showed just how you LAND in one of those things without breaking something or killing yourself.........

I don't like flying in a regular airplane and I see no reason to jump out of one capable of making a safe landing either; let alone jump off cliffs etc, and do the Rocky the Flying Squirrel routine

That said this would be cool to do:

That would be via parachute, I believe one has to have 200 skydives before allowed to fly a wing suit.

People have done some really crazy stuff , this guy jumping from 25,000 feet without a chute and landing in a net
