Base Jumping

This extreme sport originated from an adventure seeker known as Carl Boenish. In 1978, he jumped off a cliff wearing only a tracksuit, and with only a small parachute on his back. Now, millions are following suit to get a taste of that adrenaline rush.

BASE Jumping                                                                                                                                                    Wikipedia

“BASE jumping, also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed structure or cliff. “BASE” is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span, and Earth – cliff. Due to the lower altitudes of the jumps, BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than skydiving from a plane. In the U.S., BASE jumping is currently regarded by many as a fringe extreme sport. In some jurisdictions or locations, BASE jumping is prohibited or illegal; in some places, however, it is permitted, like Perrine Bridge, in Twin Falls. BASE jumping became known to the wider public by depictions of BASE jumping in a number of action movies.” as explained in Wikipedia
