Not taking anything away from the man who is obviously very skilled and has massive balls, he did mention that he takes a parachute with him in case anything goes wrong.

seen it on FB. This guy is out of his mind, even with a parachute there are so many things that can go wrong here.
Still nice to watch :P

Imagine the crossings you could do! Cross one mt to the other. If you cant traverse anymore climb and fly across the canyon to the next peak. I wish they would make a kite reinforced for flying. A water kite that is. That guy is crazy! But it would be more comforting of a flight knowing you had a reserve. :jump:
