Base Jumping is the sport which is done by the adventurers who got some real rage for a maximum adrenaline rush. It’s an experience only the bravest and most skilled has felt. It’s the extreme sport that’s at the top of all other extreme sports.
The base is an acronym that stands for Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth. That means in base jumping you are not jumping from a plane or heli, but you are free falling from a high spot within the earth and it gives you much less time to react, navigate and open your parachute.
If you are an adventurer and you want to add the real wow factor in your adventure stories and memories then this is the sport that you may want to do. But please beware as this is a real life-threatening sport. It’s not for everyone, proper training is required to perform BASE jumps. Base Jumping is way more dangerous than Skydiving from a plane.
To add further adventure on top of base jumping, there is a new extreme sport that in combination with base jumping, it provides you with the ultimate bundle of experience an adrenaline rush and that sport is Wingsuit Flying. You jump from a top position and you glide yourself like a bird or a glider using only the wingsuit. You feel like a superman and then at the right time you open the parachute to land safely. In Wingsuit Flying at times you are flying at extreme speeds with no brakes, the physics of gravity is understood practically when g = 9.8 m/s square converts your speed to maximum. Many times wingsuit persons are flying at very high speed, very close to the terrain just like a cruise missile. Nowadays many wingsuit flyers also use live streaming through their Facebook accounts to give the feeling of the experience to their followers.
