Xcorps Action Sports Show #14.)"BASE-2"-seg.2- Those fearing heights beware -this episode of the Xcorps freefalls right over the edge with guest host and world class B.A.S.E. jumper Ray Murphy dropping into a 1200 foot glory hole in Mexico called Cave of the Swallows. For the ultimate in ground rushes Ray and 5 loco amigo hombres from the States launch themselves into the massive underground void where very few have gone before. Surreal action scenes here along with great tunes by Off by One, Drowning Pool and cool new breakout band from New England- Jediah all mixing well with the ambient cave audio echo.
B.A.S.E. jumpers-Buildings-Antennas-Structures-Earth are an insane and growing niche of adventurers who first must do thousands of jumps from aircraft to learn the needed skills to jump closer to earth. Jumping BASE is jumping with no margin for error. Feel true terror with scenes shot with multi helmet cams worn by the six eXtremists. The viewer is pulled downward with adrenalized clarity into one of the largest limestone sinkholes on the planet – The Cave of the Swallows near the remote town of Golondrinas in Eastern Mexico. The hole is 1200 feet deep – a seven second 100 mph B.A.S.E. drop into an echo chamber filled with sound of screaming freefalls and the wail of thousands of swallows and parrots living in the vertical cave walls. Surreal for sure! Watch those boulders when landing! There are no nearby hospitals. See how they get out. Mucho loco!
