Lakupiippu Pipes are your friend in need!
We all know these liquorice pipes can make you predict the weather anywhere in the world with 100 % precision. They keep you standing firm on the ground, even in the worst of storms.
One morning I found myself all alone on this big big mountain – no friends to play with. Now the question was: How do I prevent myself from getting really scared and wanting to walk down and not jump off the cliff?!
Tadaaaa I am SO happy I found a mans best friend in the pocket of my Ghost 3 this morning – LAKUPIIPPU will save your day at the exit – ANY DAY!

Some places are special
You dream about them all the time
Here’s my favourite Tropical Island – The Lighthouse at the Lysefjorden i Norway
A place where you can feel at home, lean back and enjoy a cold beer in your hammock between the palm trees and listen to the ocean waves
A big part of base jumping is having the required skills to master the tools you use to have safe, and fun, flights off the cliffs. I spent a few days in Spain with the master of coaching, Jarno Cordia from Fly Like Brick. Here’s a quick preview of a few of the new skills Jarno passed along to me and my yellow Ghost 3 – I especially like the back to belly and vice versa transitions via a head down move.
It’s been a bit (read: very) quiet at AdventureRocket.com. I have been busy learning more flight skills, as well as photography and cinematography stuff. 2015 planning is in full progress.
If you are planning some beautiful adventures and flights from around the globe somewhere, I would love to join you and snap a few pics or fly with you. Drop me a line on Twitter or at my contact page.
Please stay tuned for lot’s a new stuff.
Brian Drake got this one nailed for sure, capturing Dan Vicary in this great flight down the Silberhorn in Switzerland. Wow just wow!
Video speaks for itself, no need for fancy editing or anything, just a raw one take with a bit of music. Enjoy! AND they deserve some more LIKEs on their Facebook page –> so, after watching, give them a thumbs up on facebook.com/BlackAndOrangeCompany
Here’s a little flashback to last summer in Norway. Just wanted to share the feeling of base jumping off the edge, flying from Smellveggen exit to landing at the Lower Ladder landing area. So the video and sound is uncut from my gopro, to share my point of view. At the exit I was trying to convince my friend Martin, who jumped with me, to land in the water just for the fun of it – but he did not seem very hooked on this particular idea.
The year before I actually decided myself to test out the Lysefjord water temperature. Take a look at these screen grabs from the video – sorry about the poor quality, but I decided to leave my Canon 5D behind on this jump.
If you want to see the waterlanding in the Lysefjord, it is the last part of this video from 2011:
