1,000 ft Hot Air Balloon Walk Attempt

February 28th, 2014

We come across all sorts of weird and wonderful activities to insure at Ansell’s and we often marvel at the sheer bravery and/or madness of people who take on the most insane of personal challenges.

Take a look at this video of a group of French, extreme athletes who attempted to walk on a slackline between two hot air balloons above the Pre-Pyrenees foothills in Spain.

The stunt was performed using a line of nylon connecting two balloons at a height of 10,000 ft. Sadly, neither of the three acrobats who tried to complete the walk did so, with two tumbling to earth attached to parachutes. We look forward to seeing the trio try this again!

Take a peek at this awesome footage of a selection of wingsuit flights made by Scotty Bob Morgan throughout the last year.

Cameras attached to his specially-designed suit capture the breathtaking landscapes that Morgan and his companions have soared across in the United States.

Morgan gets as close as possible to the ground, trees, cliffs and other things … taking care not to hit them while flying!

Red Bull’s Storm Chase

February 14th, 2014

Ten of the world’s best windsurfers battled huge waves and 80mph winds off the coast of Cornwall for Red Bull’s annual Storm Chase competition on 11 February.

For most events, bad weather is a reason to cancel – but this event only gets the green light when weather conditions are at their worst. France’s Thomas Traversa won the competition with Brazilian Marcilio Browne in second and Germany’s Leon Jamaer in third place. Take a look at the video and see just how amazing these guys are in action.

With Spring most definitely in the air, the Cornish coast will be adorned with windsurfers attempting to improve their skill. Get in touch, one of them..  020 7251 6821 or email [email protected]
