Adrenaline junkies live for the thrill. While jumping off a plane is already crazy for some people, it isn’t just enough for daredevils. They just had to give it a twist to make the adventure even much crazier. It’s called wingsuit rodeo and it has brought an added thrill to skydiving.

Would you give wingsuit rodeo a try if you knew that it involves jumping off a plane, straddling on to a wingsuiter and holding on to him for as long as you can? Eventually, you need to let go and deploy your parachute.

Wingsuit rodeo is a sport that has given a crazier twist to skydiving.

It involves a non-wingsuiter riding on a person with a wingsuit.

Apparently, skydivers find that it’s not enough to just jump off a plane and deploy a parachute.

In wingsuit rodeo, jumpers will leave the plane, with the non-wingsuiter holding on to the wingsuiter’s rig.

According to wingsuitfly.com, the added mass and effect of aerodynamics will significantly reduce the suit’s performance. At an altitude of about 5000 to 7000 feet, the rider will jump off his partner’s back or even deploy the parachute while still riding.

Wingsuit rodeo, which has grown in popularity, may seem fun in all videos about it but it is still considered a stunt. Those who are interested in the wild ride should make sure that both rider and wingsuiter have the experience. Safety is still paramount that’s why this sport requires thorough planning.
