What Happens When You Try to Skydive With an Umbrella

Mary Poppins flew with a magical umbrella, but can you actually soar with one real life? Pretty much — provided you have the right umbrella, which pro skier Eric Roner did. He captured the crazy feat captured with a GoPro (Hero 3).

Roner cuts loose from the bottom of a hot air balloon holding an insane umbrella contraption, and your stomach drops with him. He didn't pilot his parasol all the way to the ground, but can you blame him? You ever try landing an umbrella? [GoPro]
