Kiting Safer than Cliff Jumping?

Postby g00mbs » Fri Dec 06, 2013 11:21 am

This video is a little brutal.

Kiting maybe crazy, but not as crazy as cliff jumping!

this would be considered base jumping (off a cliff). and yes, way more dangerous.

I saw that, I like the way his mates spent more time filming than rushing to his aid!

but great footage. If you noticed his mate hardly gained much distance from the cliff face ( blue kite ). And to hit that thin rock that was sticking out when every other area around him was smooth ( ish ) bad luck.. At least he lived! poor shoot.. I expect that's toast!

Well you could go cliff jumping with a kite if you really wanted too, so I would so "NO", kiting is not safer than cliff jumping.
