|F**king awesome, especially since it was done almost 20 years ago! Wow! The camera work and the editing is especially impressive since no computer was used for editing. It motivates me to try sky surfing. "Johnny Lighting" crash at the end is funny! It's a must-see video for wannabe hook turners who turn too low. Great job!|
