I know this video is from late last year, but seriously this has to be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.YouTube Preview Image

  1. floating through the air like that looks so peaceful and yet so crazy cool intense…

  2. This and parkour will be in the summer Olympics by 2020.

  3. I do truly love that vid.

    Although coincidentally enough, I’m zerosociety.

  4. @Murphix – that comment had me looking through the history of Summer Olympic events..

    man, to have seen an Olympic Tug-o-War back in 1920…

    now, the ‘edgiest’ Olympic events I could see were BMX Racing and Beach Volleyball. Both added in 1996.

    you’d think Parkour would be a better fit with the X Games crowd, but i can find nothing about it even being demo’ed there

    last fact: Gliding was a demo sport in 1936. so our winged friends actually have an Olympic precedent.

  5. Where are thier tails?? (Very cool vid.)

  6. Hey Kevin – great site, thanks! Do we need a parkour entry?

  7. I wouldn’t classify Parkour as grinding, but it most definitely has Next Big Thing status.

  8. [...] Wingsuits [...]
