Speedflying Down a Mountain a Few Feet Off the Ground Might Be the Craziest Sport

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Jumping out of an aeroplane with a parachute on your back has its own risks. But at least in the air there’s nothing to crash into until you hit the ground. Speedflying, on the other hand, where athletes like Jamie Lee parachute down mountains just inches above massive rocks, is basically a non-stop life-risking thrill ride.

It makes for some great GoPro footage, but we’d happier taking a nice, safe mountain hike instead. [YouTube]
