Swoopstyle: Walking On Water

It would be nice if Red Bull actually gave you wings and you could walk on water. It’s also nice to see that members of the Red Bull Skydive Team are human too; that they can’t walk on water ALL the time. Looks like they were having tons-o-fun swooping the pond, err, lake in Wolfgangsee,... Watch Video »

Some people make swooping look easy. This guy is not one of them. But then again, stacking it into the pond and walking out with your head held high isn’t easy either. Props. Bet everyone enjoyed the beer later too. Watch Video »

Normally swooping in slow-mo is lame, but in this case it... Watch Video »
