    That was GoPro's video of the week this week. Awesome post.

    That feeling he must have had when he opened up that door and slid out onto the platform had to be fucking incredible.

    Biometrics and telemetry were very cool, too His altimeter ripping off the thousands of feet really puts the speed into perspective.

    Really one of the coolest things I've seen. I was pretty into this when it happened, read a bunch of articles and his respect for Kittinger was just huge. Red Bull and GoPro make some cool shit happen!

    This was one of the best "video of the week" videos GoPro ever sent me.

    That was very cool. Wish I had more reason to use a GoPro. Taking one on a surf trip to Costa Rica but that'll be my first trip with one.

    Been there before, it's a good place. Gotta bring toys for the little local beach kids so they don't steal your shit all week. Bribe em early and it's cool, quite a little racket basically getting extorted by a cartel of 10 year olds.
