    Wow... this looks awesome, but I am not sure I've got the guts to do it.

    If by unbelievable you mean crazy f'ing stupid... then yeah I'll agree. It's one thing to use one of those wingsuits, but really what are you getting with going through a hole in a rock at those speeds? It's a stunt, and a really dumb one at that because if you screw up it's all over.

    This is a sport about as far away on the 'adrenaline junkie' scale from reefkeeping as possible.

    There was a piece on '60 Minutes' about these dudes. They like to 'fly' close to cliffs so they can experience the speed! Going thru a hole seems like just another level when your adrenal glands are starting to get bored!

    A well known reefer in the industry side of the trade is one of the forefathers of the sport, a Norwegian that lives in the US.

    A famous jumper actually died when attempting to go below a bridge...

    If you are interested in seeing the video... but I must warn you... this not for the faint of heart.

    If you are interested in seeing awesome jumps.. okay crazy/ suicidal jumps, look up Jeb Corliss. He is named as the Human Bird. He really does some crazy things. Here is one of his series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=KG0cjUm4txo&NR=1
