MMWUC: Wilson’s rail slide to B.A.S.E. jump, plus Russian Loch Ness monster

December 22nd, 2013 by

This week, Mike Wilson performs the first-ever rail slide to B.A.S.E. jump, at Twin Falls, ID; we travel the Road to Sochi with Bobby Brown, David Wise and Keri Herman; and Jacob Wester hits it deep in the Euro Alps. Down below, you’ll catch a glimpse of a rare, Russian Loch Ness monster, plus a cat fail and insane wingsuit proximity flying—and more. Enjoy, and make it a great day out there.
