One would hope he has a parachute as a reserve if it turns to custards.

if you look, you can see that he does have a backup.

A similar stunt was done 8 years ago by a guy from the Air Evolution team in France.

Looks just as good. :D

Why the comparison with Ruben Lenten?

To totally different things.

Len10:
massive spectacular monster loops in storm weather.... day in and day out.

Murphy: paragliding with the wrong gear.... the ultimate dangle.... but still quite a stunt.
Jumps off a cliff at the beach here too:



Could save on parking t quite a few beaches I know :wink:

This sort of "paragliding" stunt has been done before.

Stefan Tobler jumped out of a hot air balloon at several 1000 feet with a Flysurfer UNINFLATED :o

The boss of Flysurfer jumped from a mountain with a Speed 19 with a paraglider setup

Another guy jumped from a Paraglider in flight... several thousand feet... also an uninflated Flysurfer.

Robby Naish Jumped of an giant aircraft carrier and kited away after landing.

None of these guys claimed to outclass LEN10

Take a chill pill and stay on your sofa. Marek didn't claim anything - I wrote that and it is my personal opinion whether you agree or not.
