BASE jumping and Arctic Surfing

A mad but marvellous 400 seconds of terrifying BASE jumping lunacy and beautiful surfing beneath the midnight sun…

If you enjoyed this perhaps you’d like to come to the Scottish Night of Adventure in Edinburgh in June? If you know anyone who lives near Edinburgh please do share this link with them: I’ve got to sell a lot of tickets and need some help!

  1. Hi Alastair, great speaking voice and good photos….but was expecting some super scary video footage of the base jumping! Any links?

    Started my hitch hike of the M25 again yesterday. Got 18 more laps to do from last time…when you helped me greatly by introducing me to Twitter.

    If there is anything I can do to help you sell your tickets-have a think. I am just off for another 4 hours with thumb out and will see if I can think of anything myself.

    Cheers, Simon Owens.

    • Alastair, I spent 8 hours at the side of the road looking for marketing ideas-for other people! In the afternoon, having seen the above blog I went back and a van logo caught my eye, “Genuine Solutions!” It might be a while goose chase for you but the website looks interesting. They also support a number of charities, and you never know, there could be a link in it for you to help them and visa versa.

      Good fortune to you.

    Even by the standards of this blog this is pretty bloody stupid! (In a good way) 😉
