These skydivers take the fun of skydiving to a whole new level by including a Slip ‘N Slide. I dare you not to smile watching these skydivers enjoy their favorite pastimes from both their adulthood and childhood in one incredibly moment.
According to the YouTube video information, experienced jumper Niklas Daniel and his fellow jumper Brianne Thompson decided to cool off on a hot Arizona day by leaping out of a DHC-6 Twin Otter as it cruised over at 5,000 feet onto a Slip ‘N Slide. The fearless parachuters made a near vertical descent as they approached the giant water slide — before landing perfectly on their backs to slide the full length of the waterside at around 50mph. Niklas, who has over 8,000 jumps behind him and runs a flight school in the states, captured the entire jump on a GoPro attached to his helmet.
Tell me that wouldn’t be a rush! Imagine hurling down a Slip ‘N Slide at 50 mph. That is the experience these two skydivers got on that hot Arizona day. The video is fantastic but so is the resulting GIF.
Another remarkable skydiver is 93-year-old Jim Martin who parachuted into Normandy 70 years after doing so in WWII.
One of the skydivers told Caters News:
“The weather was very hot and we were trying to figure out a fun way to cool off in between jumps. It was a great way to end the day.”
What do you think of the Arizona skydivers stunt? How do you think it would feel to barrel down a Slip ‘N Slide at those speeds?
