Object Swooping... Can't Post

Swoop'n the hardrock!
Doing again from the other side!

I'm kind of surprised that this has not been posted here yet... it's pretty technical and seems like a pretty high skill swoop... but he is the current reigning world champ!! Smile I can't stop watching these two videos... pretty cool, and very crazy!

People who go to those events know what to expect. People at a beach hotel probably dont expect to be taken out by a skydiver playing in the pool. Nevertheless, awesome swoop.

Based on the number of people that seemed to know it was coming, I'm guessing they cleared his intended flight path like a ground crew works a demo. His path seemed to be pretty cleared out all the way through to his landing area on the beach in both swoops... just guessing.

Yeah - I'd expect most, if not all were ground crew. I'd just ask Curt. He's pretty open about stuff Smile

I'd call BS on that Ian... Looking at the video, there were plenty of wuffos in the pool and chairs.
