Helicopter Rope Swinging

In March 2009 I got a call from Queenstown alpine legend Dave Spoon McLeod to help develop a successful rope swing using a helicopter to swing from for an upcoming episode of the Jack Osbourne Adrenaline Junkies TV show. This is right up my alley, I jumped at the chance to combine rope-climbing skills with my favourite aerial vehicle, the helicopter.

Shane McConkey Memorial Skydive Squaw Valley Chuck Berry & Miles Daisher

Shane McConkey Memorial

I traveled to Squaw Valley, California in April to attend the Memorial Service of our good friend Shane. In the style that Shane lived his life, Miles Daisher & I arrived by parachute on a beautiful, blue, crisp, spring afternoon. To be in the sky above Squaw with Miles & the Sprit of Shane was special.

Becks Beer TV Commercial Wingsuit Skydiving

Now, wingsuit skydiving for the Becks Beer ad campain was totally incredible. The job description was to jump from one heilcopter, fly my wingsuit close by a ground based camera crew, then fly close to the ridges on the front face of the Remarkables Range, right in front of the camera halecipter hovering further down the hill. Fantastic, this is the stuff I live for. I got the most amazing visuals, flying my body down through the terrain.

Lexus Pursuit TV Commercial BASE Jumping

The Lexus Pursuit TV Commercial was a lot of fun to achieve the shots that the director was looking for. A tiny platform was built on the rocky outcrop, big enough for myself & cameraman Sol Vallis who nailed the air to air shot. Safety man Simon Rasmussen led the way to assess the windy conditions & give the cameraman in the helicopter some practice at shooting a rapidly accelerating human. While waiting for the wind to improve, the crew shot the aerials of me on the edge...peering down into the depth of the jump, quite happy to be near the steep stuff.

Paratenting - Jumping the Wigwam

Part of being an adventure athlete is dreaming up new possibilities. Every time I saw a Red Bull Wigwam event tent I was taken by the fact that it is about the right shape & the right size as a round parachute, this led to much dreaming about transforming one into a jumping device!
