Buriram City is located in the eponymous northeast province of Thailand. While the local residents look forward to the New Year’s festival (held in the middle of April) as a chance to cool down during the hottest month of the year, one local politician was fed up by the inevitable destruction caused by young gang members year after year. So he gave them an ultimatum: at the opening ceremony of the event, he declared, “This time, whoever disrupts the festival will be forced to fight three rounds with a pro Muay Thai fighter.”
This is the moment a pair of daredevil skydivers set a new base jump world record by leaping 2,717 feet off the tallest building in the world. Veteran base jumpers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet prepared for their record breaking leap from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower by spending time up a Swiss mountain to acclimatise to the altitude. The men are not the first to base jump from the top of the tower – which is roughly twice the height of New York’s Empire State Building – but they had a special platform built to add an extra 500 feet, enabling them to break the world record!

As a kid that skated for many years of my life, I never understood why a lot of us think it was alright to f**k with security guards. They’re just dudes on an hourly wage. As a kid I’d get pissed but I get it now. I would always ask to stay a bit longer, but if I got the boot, I would leave politely. Sometimes the security guards come in with a bitter attitude because they where expecting it from us, which I get now. Back then it just made me think they were a**holes who couldn’t get a job as a cop. I just wish there was more respect from both sides around. “Sounds like a winner to me” is my new response to everything.
“With winter winding down in the Northern hemisphere, the crew took to Boreal for a couple days before they close and re-open for Woodward Tahoe summer camps. There was still good snow and plenty of features left up for the closing week and the boys had a blast, we can’t wait till next time.” – FYVE Snowboards
