This video symbolizes summer in the mountains. Not that anyone in the world but Mike does over-the-top stunts like this and makes them look this easy, but we all like jumping into water. Most of us enjoy the tame 15-foot cliff into a deep lake thing. Mike enjoys the 60-foot high velocity rope-swing into 12 feet of water thing.
When I asked Mike about this stunt, he told me that his feet hit the bottom of the river about 25% of the time. Insane. But that’s what we love Mike for: his ability to do the insane and make look good.
Whatever happened to Wilson anyway? Word has it he moved to the Bahamas and is cliff jumping to his hearts content out there. And they say that he’s a celebrity over there. Sounds like a good gig to us.

It’s all fun and games until the PCSO shows up. Then it’s even more awesome.
this is a classic and still blows me away
