Nick Jacobsen takes an extreme sport to the extreme, climbing a huge crane for a kiteboarding launch like no other.
Take a look:
Kiteboarder Jacobsen performed the "crane jump" stunt in Table View Bay in South Africa. It was captured in photos by Stefan van der Kamp. Kitecentre Zanzibar had the video.
As extreme goes, it's pretty impressive.
