One more idea to try out: why not use a classic skateboard and use it to surf through the air? Oliver Furrer was eager to test this concept with his friend, Tim Glass, at Vichy, France. Together they jumped out of an Antonov 72 jet and immediately realised how difficult it was to stay together in the air on such small boards and with a speed of over 160 mph. However with a grip on exit it was possible to stay together, turn around all axes and flip through the sky in rhythm. But the most dangerous part was to land without breaking any bones! Fortunately the two experts always managed to land safely on their feet, having dropped the board earlier. How exciting, to roll out of a plane, skate through the sky, and then swoop the street!
