BASE jumping is the sport of using a parachute to jump from fixed objects. "BASE" is the acronym for the four general types of objects participants jump from: Buildings, Antennae, Spans (bridges) and Earth (cliffs).

BASE jumping is arguably one of the most dangerous and extreme sports on the planet, with a high potential for injuries or fatalities. We do not recommend BASE jumping to anyone. If you are a highly experienced parachutist and are interested in BASE jumping, seek guidance from an experienced BASE jumper in your area. Otherwise, don't do it.
