"Dangerous Drop"
« on: May 02, 2008, 06:52:47 PM »
This isn't exactly Parkour-related, but I thought it was inspiring:



There's a topic in the Socialize thread about rolling on water.  I bet this guy wished he could a few times:

"Dangerous Drop"

He talks at the end about getting out there and moving and just trying new stuff, and the video really highlights persevering in overcoming obstacles.  In that respect, it definitely captures the spirit of Parkour.


I bet this guy would like Parkour.  Check out this paragraph from Wiki:

"[Chris] Sharma prefers dynamic, "acrobatic" climbing with spread-out, well defined holds rather than delicate crimpers or cracks. He has a unique talent for using his momentum and grip strength to power through challenging moves, such as dynos and campusy sloper sections, sometimes even skipping over difficult holds in the process. He excels at routes that require a combination of high strength, creative technique, and precise movement."

Sharma is my climbing hero.  He's a total beast!

Train safe, play hard, and dream of flight.

That was the gnarliest dyno I've ever seen! The man is a beast...
