“A few years back a fan posted a picture of Balls Pyramid on my Facebook page and asked if it could be jumped. When I saw the picture I couldn’t believe the place was real. I thought it had been photoshopped. I then started doing a little research on google and found out the place was very real and next to an amazing island called Lord Howe. I sent the picture to my very good friend Luigi Cani and asked him if he thought this would make a good location for a project. He said absolutely and he started putting everything together to go there and fly wing-suits next to this amazing and beautiful location. It may be the single most beautiful place I have ever been. It really did feel like an alien landscape from another planet.” – Jeb Corliss

Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. – Steve Jobs
