If you had one wish what would it be? When you were a kid I bet a lot of you said that you wanted to fly. As humans, we may rule the Earth but we’re relegated to walking and running. Meanwhile the birds, Richard Branson and one man named Espen Fadnes rule the sky.
Last year, Espen Fadnes won an international competition for wingsuit flying, earning him the title of the world’s fastest flying human. In the following video made by the Goovinn, Fadness fills the audience in on his experience– how he feels jumping off the cliff, how he plans his descent and how he dreams about flying.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
