52 Just Make a Leap

Just Make a Leap

Posted on November 22, 2009 by team


The second capital city of Russia, Saint-Petersburg, can boast of beauty of its architecture. But its off-beat design is not the only thing the city can show. Also it has a great diversity of different subcultures with lots of followers. And recently two guys from one of city’s traceur movements decided to take their chances and make the use of their city’s architecture.

It was really a crazy thing, a jump from one building to another. The point is that the buildings were the same height. A leap from nine story building to a five story one without any breakfall. The distance between two roofs was 11 high (~35 feet) and just 7 meters (~22 feet) long, though it’s kinda spooky to talk like that about 20 feet length of a space.

Just try to imagine how does it feel to stand at the edge of a roof staring first at the other roof and then again at the ground, in and out, in and out. After all you are eventually fixing it up, getting a few steps off… Getting run and the same thought rattling in your head all the time – the main thing is not to catch the roof edge up. And the second later you are flying already and comfy mats waiting for you at the other roof along with your friends. Well, nothing venture, nothing have.

As you can see by photos, the second jump was also a success. They say that the two guys were inspired by the similar roof-to-roof jump of traceur sport founder in Paris.

People can fly, approved.

    No sane person jumps from a reasonably sound building.

  8. CZenda says:

    They should be getting high on grass instead, it is less dangerous for the innocent passers-by.

    bigger balls than me!

    • Grinya says:

      It isn’t necessary to have such a big balls in this world. That guy made very dangerous stunt, but life style like that is straight way grave. Having big balls without brains – what’s better? )

  13. Masked says:

    Either fake or the guy jumping is totally insane …

  14. Oleksa says:

    WOW!!! Craaazyyy!!! But damn cool…

  15. Poobar says:

    If this daredevil actually had “Big Balls” he could not have made successfull jump. He would have been unbalanced by being too bottom-heavy.

    This equation will explain:

    Pv^ = (D1 * Ty)/(Sp * Bb)

    I believe he had “Average Balls” or “Slightly Less than Average Balls”

    i love crazy russia!

    Mirror’s Edge IRL. Awesome.

  19. Kolossus says:

    Please, if someone find a video then publish the link here.

  20. Amy says:

    Scary! The thing about parkour is you have to be 100% confident when you execute any move. If the guy had hesitated even a little bit, his jump would’ve been off and that…wouldn’t have been good.

    And God knows how many fathoms. To hell with parliamentary procedure. Weve got to wrangle up some cattles.

  24. Yoron says:

    This comes from being young and pretty sure you can’t die :)
    Someone else, oh yeah, but not you ::))

    Gotta love it.
    And it do take balls to be able to do it.
    I mean, I can’t see them having ‘trained’ for it?

    And i don’t think vodka would work with planning something like this. But after, oh yeah ::))

  25. whitebouy says:

    I’m not familiar with the saying nothing venture nothing have, could someone please enlighten me.

  26. Thanks for taking the time to talk about this, I feel strongly about it and I benefit from learning about this topic. Please, as you gain facts, please add to this blog with new information. I have found it extremely useful.

    That’s not 4 stories, they said 9 story to 4 story.

    That’s only a 2 story jump. It would be a shame to inspire others to perform a 4 story leap, they would almost certainly die.

  28. Wow… it is risky :p
