Russian Swing Base Jumping: a swing into the deep….
Base jumping into the deep: It all began with the combination of the dreams of 4 individuals.
Those individuals are Donald Schultz, Sean Chuma, Joey California and Travis Tripp. We always thought Russian swings were very exciting and very powerful. When Travis came along it was time. He built the Russian swing and then the new sport began.
In this film you can see how it all started and where it will go. It is a truly amazing and powerful thing.
Meet Donald Schultz:
Born in South Africa, Donald Schultz is an filmmaker, animal expert, writer, photographer and extreme adventurer that just loves life.
Donald started to work with reptiles at the age of 13 and was fortunate to have an internship at the world-famous Fitzsimons Snake Park, where he received a sound schooling in herpetology.
His love affair with dangerous activities extends beyond just his work, and he tries to incorporate the two whenever possible.
He is an avid skydiver, base jumper and a highly specialized scuba diver, having been certified as the youngest CLASS II commercial diver in Africa. Schultz now calls Los Angeles his home… when he actually is home.
Graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Nebraska in 2002, Chuma began his “jump” into BASE with a solid skydiving career beginning at the age of 16, that was mostly concentrated in San Diego, CA.
In 2007 after completing over 1700 skydives, Chuma made the move to Twin Falls, ID where he has accumulated over 2400 Base Jumps and runs a very successful BASE Jumping School, Inter-Demented BASE.
