I never understood what it meant to have the job title of “daredevil.” I mean, sure, I know what the word means, but always wondered how the fuck people could spend their days risking their lives for a thrill.
After seeing this video of professional daredevil Spencer Seabrooke, I kind of understand things a little bit better—though I definitely wouldn’t want to try it myself.
Crossing a 210-foot rope that sat 915 feet off of the ground, Seabrooke walked—wearing no safety equipment—nearly fell to his death while attempting to break the world record for the longest free solo slackline walk.
Thankfully, homey was able to catch himself, recover and finish the solo walk, although he probably had a little extra in his pants after the experience.
There might be a lot of action movies out there that give thrills, but when a daredevil like Spencer Seabrooke does something like this for nothing more than the glory, it’s impressive as hell.
