Redefining Human Flight: BASE Jumper Glides Through a Waterfall
Alexander Polli made the career switch you normally don’t hear about. Reaching his limits as a professional snowboarder, Polli decided it was time to switch to something a little more exciting–BASE jumping.
With a new website and video below it looks as if Polli has settled nicely into his new office. In the video Polli dons a wingsuit that allows him to glide through the mountains of New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland.
Make sure to focus in at about the 1:35 mark because that’s when Polli flies through a waterfall. Outside Magazine asked Polli about that moment and he replied:
It was surreal. I had plentry of forward speed, so I was confident the water was not going to affect my flying too much.
