Watch My Failed Free Fall Jump from 30 Feet [VIDEO]
Is there a way to possibly fail a free fall jump? Apparently yes. The design of this is to jump roughly from 30 feet up and land on your butt on this giant airbag.
Yep I screwed that part up and twisted my ankle.
The thing I guess I didn't realize is that I've never been in the situation to change my direction while falling through the air. At least not in that direction. I had decided I was going to take a running jump and then roll backwards. I had too much forward momentum.
It may not seem like it would be much of a rush, but I can promise you that it really is. At first I thought it would be nothing, but as soon as I got to the top I could feel the adrenaline pumping. The fall felt like a roller coaster drop times 10. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance. However, learn from my mistake.
