Chris Douggs McDougall about himself:
“My life has been devoted to BASE jumping and skydiving for over 16 years now – 16 years that have brought me endless joy and adventure and taught me what living life to the fullest really means. BASE jumping proves that nothing is impossible if you chase your dreams with passion and determination.
My chosen adventure sports have taken me to all corners of the globe, exploring some of nature’s true wonders in the company of the world’s most unique, inspirational people. I created BASEdreams to share my experiences of these incredible sports, in the hope that they may inspire even just one person to break free from the constraints of society and achieve what their hearts most desire – whatever that may be.
While only a handful of us will experience BASE jumping, we’re all plunging through the freefall of life. And we have to make the most of it.”

Vladimir Spigler and his friend Joseph travel to some eastern Mediterranean country to perform some BASE jumps from a 110m bridge but here’s the catch – they will try to jump in as many different ways as they can. Before they get caught. There are lots of variations for BASE jumping, and Vladimir is going to walk (or jump) you through them – BASE jumping with the pilot chute stowed in the canopy container, with a hand held pilot chute, with pilot chute assisted from one another, by attaching the pilot chute to the bridge with a static line, with the extracted canopy hanging down and performing a rollover on top of it… Potential police encounters, wind and a traffic-filled motorway will make their day exciting, illegal, but not easy!
