Watch Insane, Jaw-Dropping Base Jump From a Zipline

Flying Frenchies ride a surfboard from one mountain to the next in stunning Red Bull video

It's a tense time in the world. Maybe consider unwinding with a relaxing video of guys going across a mountain on a surfboard, then jumping off and parachuting the rest of the way down. 

Sounds chill, right? What about a guy doing a headstand while executing the stunt? This video has that as well. 

So why, exactly, would anybody want to do something like this? The answer is pretty simple: It's the Flying Frenchies, a group of "acrobats, athletes, performers, skyliners, artists and humans" who love doing crazy shit like this, and have been since around 2008, when members Julien Millot and Tancrède Melet met in south of France on a climbing trip and set up a highline together. The rest was history. Stomach-churning, blood pressure heightening, thrilling history. And today it leads up to this, their latest video for Red Bull which you should probably never consider trying yourself.
