The world of BASE jumping and wing suit flying is not for the faint hearted. It is a sport literally littered with tragic death and injury. And yet, the rewards for the enthusiasts include that most prized sensation; to fly like a bird.
Sean Chuma is a veteran of both disciplines. In fact, with 6,700 jumps under his belt he qualifies as the most experienced jumper in the world. He was completely different to what I expected. After losing more friends and acquaintances than he can remember, Sean describes in his quiet and understated way, what draws him back to his passion on a daily basis. And if you are keen, you can jump off a bridge in Idaho safely held in Sean's arms to capture the feeling for yourself. That's what I call a leap of faith!
