Video: Proximity Wingsuiting Through a Tight Couloir

Proximity wingsuiting is one of the most dangerous sports out there. When you're whizzing past rocks at greater-than-highway speeds, any mistakes will almost certainly be fatal. Luckily, Hartman Rector didn't make any mistakes during this flight near Salt Lake City, Utah.

There isn't a definitive statistical analysis of the risk of severe injury or death undertaken by wingsuiters, but fans of the sport often draw a distinction between proximity and non-proximity flights. The former is much more dangerous than the latter, according to at least three Youtube comments.

Other great comments include "Bro, I can’t even fit my car between two other cars when I park..." and "Me and the boys with our new elytras after defeating the ender dragon."

Video: Sketchy Andy Lewis Skydives Into BASE Jump Exits

If you haven’t already heard of him, “Sketchy” Andy Lewis is a purebred pirate living in the sands of the Utah desert. The pro-slackliner-turned-BASE-jumper-turned-internet-celebrity has been busy doing the most ridiculous sh*t you could ever imagine while we quietly sit by watching in awe. Sure, this might not be the most extreme thing we’ve seen him do, but it’s pretty damn creative we have to admit.  RELATED: Teahupoo Was Too Big For The Tahiti Pro Trials Watch him make the most of the

Before Jimmy Carter was President, He Canoed Some Sketchy Sh*t

Before Jimmy Carter was President, He Canoed Some Sketchy Sh*t

Teddy Rosevelt wasn’t the only president that spent quality time outdoors. Before he was in the White House, Carter was running whitewater. In 1974 Carter canoed Georgia’s Chattooga River in an open-faced canoe with pal Claude Terry. They managed to survive the wild Bull Sluice rapid, which is a prominent class IV rapid that even keeps the most experienced boaters on their toes. That feat made the duo the first to ever complete a tandem canoe descent of the rapid.

Does This Count As Urban Wakeskating?

Lately, we’ve been seeing quite the crop of wakesports video that involve zero boats. It’s kind of like urban skiing, where riders get towed into ridiculous features by nothing but a winch or bungee cord. Wake skater Brian Grubb’s latest video looks a little different though, since he’s nowhere near a city. Instead, he gets towed through a slot canyon somewhere in the Jordanian desert, narrowly avoiding rock walls and other features, laying down effortless style the whole way through.
