Part 3 of My Summer Vacation - Jill Kuzman

Part 3 of My Summer Vacation - Jill Kuzman
September 10, 2013 - 

The morning after we get back to Switzerland we head out to High Nose so I can make my first wingsuit jump in the valley. Back to the fear icing on the fear cake! It wasn't quite that bad this time around. On my favorite exit, feeling good on my suit. I push off and the anxiety immediately disappears. I fall for a few seconds and then began soaring out over the ledge and then the trees. I pass the trees, pass the road, then pull high. What?! I was scared! I was safe!Later that day, I head back...

First jump off Brento, I'm terrified all over again. New exit point. Further to fly to the landing. Different wind conditions. I walk down to the exit point after gearing up. I grab one of the ropes set up for safety. And manage to slip on the polished rock. I hold onto the rope, but drop my helmet and goggles. Slow motion, they bounce twice and disappear off the side of the cliff. Bad sign?! Who knows. Just a little fear icing on my fear cake.I start frantically rambling about how I can't possibly fly without goggles. I'm not...

South East Asia Trip: Part 3 - Thailand - Jill Kuzman
June 19, 2013 - 

Leg 3 of my fall adventures... Thailand! We ended our South East Asia trip in, what could only be described as, tropical paradise. Warm, salty ocean, monkeys as common as squirrels, sweltering humidity, amazing food and stunning cliffs begging to be climbed and jumped! We arrive in Krabi and all pile in a van to take us to our longboat. I know immediately that I have fallen in love with Thailand as we pull up to the ocean. We buy our boat ticket and wade out to thigh deep water carrying our suitcases on our heads. The long boat...

Begin part one of my long awaited South East Asia trip. I've been wanting to travel to this area for more than half my life. The stunning tropics. Warm humid air. Big cities. Rural farmlands. Monkeys. Palm trees. Ten flights. It is to be my biggest adventure yet. And I get to do it with friends.First stop is Borneo. I arrive after a full day of travel. 6 of us split a cab to the lovely Wisma Sanyan building. I'm delirious by this point. I feel like I lost an entire day, but we push on. Straight to the...

Jill Kuzman - If Your Friends Jumped Off a Bridge...
August 27, 2012 - 

Here's a little compilation of my friends and I jumping at the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho. This is the only bridge in the US that it is legal to jump off at any time. It stands at 480 feet and is one of the most popular BASE jumping spots around. Jumpers come from all over the world to make their first jumps, learn new tricks and dial in aerials. Bridges are arguably the safest objects. Unlike cliffs, antennas and buildings, an off-heading opening (having your parachute open any direction other than forwards) doesn't require instant action to...
