Alain Rober – REAL EXTREME!

In a long list of phobias, many of which nature has generously endowed with man, there is one called fear of heights. People subject to this scourge often use the expression “breathtaking”, even if they are separated from a hard surface by some ridiculous two meters.

The essence of it is to jump on a ramp and be able to complete a revolution of 900 degrees around itself. It’s hard to even imagine, not what to accomplish. And it happened in a person with a height of 191 cm! Bravo, Tony! Continue reading
