Many people look at base jumpers as individuals who recklessly throw themselves off of anything they find without any regard to the dangers and risks of what could happen. As a Base Jumper myself, I can tell you that normally is not the case. While Base Jumping has its adrenaline junkie characters here and there, the true advocates and role models in BASE are actually quite afraid every single jump. It’s that fear that keeps us extremely careful and calculated. Have a look at a beautiful video about Acrophobia, and one mans fear of heights.
