Offbeat Video

An adrenaline junkie threw himself from the top of a cliff completely naked – with only a roll over to preserve his dignity.

Alexandre Girard, 40, decided to ‘spice it up’ when he did one of his regular base jumps with an unusual twist – this time, he was completely in the buff. 


The skydiver had forgotten his parachute, and seemingly his clothes, before he decided to embark on his 362nd base jump at The Stawamus Chief in Squamish, British Columbia. 

Alexandre, from Vancouver, said: “I have done similar jumps before and my friends suggested that I did this one naked to spice it up as we hiked up.


“It’s surprising how quickly your friends will volunteer their help to jump your clothes down as soon as you say something about jumping naked!

“I decided to do a roll over simply because I had forgotten to pack my parachute that morning.

“This was my 10th roll over, second off a cliff and 362nd base jump – but definitely my first naked!”
