A video about climbing a spectacular rock wall in a remote fjord on Canada's arctic Baffin Island. But the true star of the show is just the glorious glacier-formed granite landscape and most of all the peak of the climb in ethereal illumination when they get up there. Fantastic images.

I don't care about climbing in the slightest and watched this twice in the last 24h already:efeeec645d:

So I gave indoor skydiving another try... :w00t2:  I can’t quite do these stunts :blink:, but my instructor thought I did pretty good floating around and doing some spins.  Highly recommended to give it a try if you have an indoor skydiving facility near you!  And you thought balancing on an EUC was tricky!  :P

I've tried this and I agree it's about 100 times harder than it looks. The coolest part for me was that simply twisting my hands from a 45 degree angle to the opposite 45 degree angle spun my entire body around. 

I agree with your instructor and think you did pretty good too. Were you in the first or the second video?  :efee78d764:

I don’t like to upchuck my cookies, thank you very much!  :barf:  I mainly tried to maintain a level floaty position and not veer too much to the sides, front, and back!  Although... it was rather nice when the hotty instructor grabbed me a few times to set me back into place!  Subconsciously, maybe I did mean to veer!  :whistling:

The pros make it look so easy.  I wish it wasn’t so expensive as I wouldn’t mind trying to learn more advanced moves.  :popcorn:

I was more like this :whistling::

Next hobby after EUCs found!  :w00t2:

Except I think they did a lot of creative editing to make it look like it can carry a real passenger and do those stunts?  There's only a short hover with a real guy in it.  :angry:

@Rama Douglas New idea for LA EUC games: EUC tag. mten3 recommended. ;)

Nice! Actually not a bad idea! :cheers:

Build a field with some EUC-suitable obstacles (poles, walls, ramps, curbs/jumpable mini-walls, ...) and let people chase each other with their wheels. Sounds like a fun thing to watch. Not sure how to determine who wins - maybe lowest aggregate time until the opponent was tagged or a time limit for the round is over (if the hunter steps off, it counts as full time limit, if the hunted steps off, that counts as tag)?

Can I leave a bunch of my business cards at the finish line? Surely there will be riders requiring some sort of rehabilitative/ therapeutic brace. ;)

Wow, but I'd stick with my dog in spite of all his drooling and coat around.
