We have all seen the footage of the legend base jumper Jeb Corliss crash into Table Mountain in Cape Town. Now another video was released showing Jeb making the mountain his very own bitch on a few previous attempts. Unfortunately he went one jump too far and on his last jump and even though it seems the conditions were perfect, Table Mountain had enough and bent Jeb over his knee for the hiding of his life.  See the latest footage below:

 

The man has a death wish but luckily he survived and only sustained some leg injuries, this time he was lucky.

After the crash he said:

“Well the answer is very simple. I was flying to close and messed up 🙂 I was going for a black balloon that was basically laying on the rocks and was going to try and kick it with my foot. In order to do this I had to fly low and flat between boulders. My left foot clipped a boulder that dragged me into a flat ledge that I took at the waist at full speed. If I had not clipped that boulder I might have made it, I might have still impacted. It’s very hard to tell from the footage. Everything happens very fast. But when you go for a flight where inches are the difference between making it and not making it well impact is very possible. I knew this and took the risk and paid the price for pushing way to hard. I take full responsibility for my actions and am just happy I still have legs to do rehab on.

This is not my first time getting hurt and it will not be my last. I push it, always have and always will. One day I will die and I just hope that when I do, it will be doing something I truly love…” Jeb Corliss

He also claims that he doesn’t use pain killers which we think makes him even more Badass…
