The Evolution of Human Flight

This past June, expert wingsuit flyer Rex Pemberton ventured down to Baja, Mexico and became one of the first people in history to pilot an honest-to-goodness personal jet-powered wing. But that wasn't enough to satisfy this adrenaline-addicted athlete. In September, Rex wanted to combine his passion for flying with his passion for surfing and become the first person ever to skydive onto—and then surf— a big wave. The plan is to jump from a helicopter 3,500 feet above the waves, skydive into position, and then land at 30 mph atop of a 10-foot wave and surf it. See what happens when Rex tries to pull off his craziest stunt yet.
