What is B.A.S. E Jumping?
BASE jumping is the recreational sport of jumping from fixed objects, using a parachute to descend safely to the ground. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: buildings, antenna (referring to radio masts), spans (bridges) and earth (cliffs).
Participants exit from a fixed object such as a cliff and after an optional freefall delay, deploy a parachute to slow down their descent before landing softly. A popular form of BASE jumping is wingsuit BASE jumping.
