Kiteboarder makes crazy crane jump in South Africa

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.

  1. Kite boarding is always something I have wanted to try, but I know I will never do anything like this. My hats off to this guy!

  2. This man is insane and very talented since he jumped out that huge crane. Thanks.


Thanks for visiting Outdoors 720!!
