    Mmaaaaaannnnnn. How is he going to just walk off like he didn't just do that. I'd be walkin around sayin "did you just see that?! I was up THERE and now I'm right HERE!"

    There's no way I could do that now but when I was younger I definitely would have screamed like a bitch all the way down!

    How do they not blow out their knees? Is it one of those things where you're forced to retire young because your joints are bombed?
    Still impressive. Scary as all hell but impressive. =]

    You should see them on the large jump we have in Slovenia. They "fly" for over 200m.

    For an adrenaline junkie, this must be great. You could not pay me enough to do this though… yikes.

    All those years of hard work and preparation are well rewarded by the adoration of fans, competitors, and a screaming child at the bottom.

  • Canucks_Rule

    balls the size of my head.

      Drunk probably

      You don't just go off the large hill the first time you ever do it. The world class jumpers start when they are little going off something like a 10 meter hill and they work their way up as they get better. It's supposedly not that hard – it is hard to do it well, but normal people can do it too.
