Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a daredevil speed-flying down a rocky mountain face.  

With the wind in his hair, New Zealander Jamie Lee, 26, glides at full speed down the sharp rocks of the appropriately-named Sharks Tooth, near Wanaka in the country’s South Island.

But this footage shows the stunt wasn’t all plain sailing for young adrenaline junkie as he dodges and weaves through ginormous rocks at speeds of approximately 80mph.

And while some may call his journey call  the scariest commute imaginable, but for Jamie, speed-flying has been his passion for over eight years.

Jamie said: “We had a beautiful morning hike and then flew down the southern alps of New Zealand.

“We enjoyed natures’ medicine in the early morning.

“That leaves you with a beautiful afterglow for the rest of the day.”
