Skysurfing in an Active Thunderstorm | Storm's Edge
► More video from Sean's flight here:
Jump zones shut down during a thunderstorm because it would be insane for people to jump out of an airplane into one...yet Sean MacCormac is poised to leap from 2 miles above Southwest Florida with laser beams of lightning randomly igniting the sky and no way to tell which direction is safe. He charges out, feet strapped to his board to surf into a hostile thundercloud at speeds up to 130 mph. Click play and witness Sean MacCormac and the Red Bull Air Force cloud surf an active thunderstorm!

IMAX Wild California: Sky surfing over San Diego [HD]
Clip from the IMAX documentary Adventures in Wild California (from MacGillivray Freeman).
Sky surfing is a type of skydiving in which the skydiver wears a board attached to his or her feet and performs surfing-style aerobatics during freefall.
The boards used are generally smaller than actual surfboards, and look more like snowboards or large skateboards.
The attachment to the feet is normally made removable, so that if the skydiver loses control or has difficulty opening their parachute, the board can be jettisoned.
Skysurfing is a skill requiring considerable practice. The extra drag of the board tends to upset the balance and make the skydiver flip over.
Because of the possibility of dropping the board, not every skydiving club permits skysurfing, and only a minority of skydivers have attempted this recent specialisation in the sport.
When a skysurfer is filmed by another skydiver falling alongside them, the resulting film gives the appearance that the skysurfer is riding on the air in the same way a surfer rides on a wave.

X-Games Gold Medal Jump - Troy Hartman
This is the winning jump of the 1997 X-Games. My teammate, Vic Pappadato, died in a tragic skydiving accident a few months later. I had no desire to team up with anybody else, and quit the sport at that point.

WingSuit Cypres (WSC) for Skysurfing
The first Wingsuit Cypres (WSC) units has been submitted to 10 Athletes. Oliver Furrer was one of these lucky Sportsmen and therefore he made a short informative release video about the new AAD from Airtec. Revolutionary on this new WSC are the two sets of parameter combination during the same jump.
So he took the opportunity and performed a Skysurf jump with the new Wingsuit Cypres (WSC) integrated in his skydive rig. It was interesting to hear the sound by the WSC audio device after the Cypres unit changed from the freefall phase into the parachute flying phase.
However, the low temperatures (-21.5°C) during this jump made it difficult to move fast over the Skydive Switzerland DropZone.
