Split of a Second with Espen Fadnes - JT Holmes

 
Split of a Second with Espen Fadnes - JT Holmes
 
September 24, 2012 - 
 

Espen has been on the cutting edge of human flight for more than a decade and was the first person to choose to fly beneath parachute opening altitude.  He did that in a pair of jeans in the year 2000 in a fast and pure tracking position at a mountain called Karlstratind in Norway.  Since then he has wow'd us all with his videos and become World Champion at wingsuit racing.  IN this video he shows off some incredible flights in Chamonix France and he speaks of his mentality as it relates to his lifestyle choices.  Espen and Dean Potter are two athletes that represent our controversial sport of base jumping in a positive intelligent way and it is cool to see them put out quality stuff like this!

The photo I attached is of Espen, Shane and I doing flips off a mountain on a sunny day in Norway in some wingsuits back in 2007.
