What happens when you go splat? If you're lucky as hell you only break your legs...


If not.....

This is not my first time getting hurt and it will not be my last. I push it, always have and always will. One day I will die and I just hope that when I do, it will be doing something I truly love...

Yabo, Jr.!

Yabo must'ave had an Italian gf (or brief encounter perhaps) bitd, and this dood is the result, eh?

Regardless, he's definitely Stonemaster material, imho!

Thanks for sharing!!

edit: I've been watching this guys (Alexander Polli) proxy flying vids for the last year or so...doods on a mission.

"Stonemaster material" - just sayin' that he has his sh#t together, has paid his dues, and is fully committed! (&, obviously, bold)

Over 6 million views in just 4 days...WOW!

"Yabo, Jr." - or perhaps Tobin. Whether it was soloing the NF of the Matterhorn etc, or smuggling Bibles into Bulgaria, TS was definitely fully committed.

Sometimes I wish I wanted to die that badly. He's probably got an inside track on the afterlife.

These guys followed the golden rule to any successful stunt or pyrotechnic event.

Test, test, test.

I hear you. He said in one of his videos he expects to die everytime he goes out. I guess I don't know what that means - I wish him luck......it's completely entertaining to the rest of us though. Don't do it for us, though, Mr. Corliss!

That's an awesome video Splitter. Looks like the world has moved past bullfighting!

MN - I hear what your saying also. What impresses me is the level of his passion, commitment, and boldness. It's admirable and unique, imo! I guess I was also envisioning what could be done with it in other fields of focus. Like I said, Tobin Sorensen comes to mind.
