CNN HEADLINE NEWS – BEST OF THE YEAR

2008 has been a very productive year between ski BASE jumping Mt Hood, Engineer Mountain, getting the cover of SKI magazine and getting to do the first BASE jumps with a 360 camera. News to Me on CNN Headline News selected the ski BASE jump segments from this past season for the “Best of the Year”.

I wish you all a great 2009 year. Let’s make it another epic one!

JUNIOR’S CAVE

I received an email a couple days ago from Isaac at Junior’s Cave for an interview. These guys are pretty cool and very passionate about extreme sports and other unsual activities.

You can see the interview by clicking in the following link: http://juniorscave.com/matthiasgiraud.html

I also added some BASE jump stills from Twin Falls and ski pictures from Mt Baker by Grant Gunderson. Go check them out in the Gallery!

It looks like snow has been falling in Europe. So, let’s keep doing the snow dance so we can get some in the US as well!

B.A.S.E. JUMPING WITH A 360 DEGREE CAMERA

Miles Daisher and myself jumped off the Perrine
Bridge in Twin Falls, ID with a new type of camera. It is a 2360 camera that shoots every angle around you when you wear it. You can really see everything! Check the footage if you have a minute. Good times! If you click on the immersive media link, you can switch to every view just by using your computer mouse.

ENGINEER MOUNTAIN COLORADO

After 4 years of preparation, it finally happened. I just did the first ski BASE jump off Engineer Mountain in Colorado.

This jump would not have happened without the help of Your Flesh Tattoo artist Roger Seliner, Ska Brewery, The Boarding Haus, Bubba’s Boards, 4 Corner River Sports and Pedal the Peaks. Thanks everyone. Here is the Durango Herald article. Stay posted for a youtube video soon as well as pictures!
