Here's a one minute video edit by Dylan Wade of he and his friends having tons of fun doing acrobatic jumps out of trees into a pond. It incorporates Twixter slow motion and pinpoint sync to the music. Warning: When you view this video it either will make you feel 10 years younger, or it may scare another couple of years on to you.
Tame stuff compared to what we would do at the Green River Gorge here in Western WA.
FF to about 1 min
If the parents had been there, one would have said “wow, can you do that again, and I want a turn too!”
The other parent would have said “Cut that stupid stuff out before you get hurt!”
I’ll let you guess which one is (generally) the father, and which is the mother.
The 'pond' was not anywhere near deep enough to be doing these types of dives and jumps.
I NEVER dove into a body of water that I KNEW wasn't deep enough.
They're lucky that at least one of them isn't a quadriplegic now.
I liked it until the point where the kid dropped the F bomb. Why ruin a really good video with something so inconsequential?
Surprised the kids haven’t gotten some kind of fine or counseling from the government overlords.
Whoa! While I knew that this interpolative Slow mo would one day be possible, I did not know it was already at hand. Wow.
You owe the creator of the word ‘incredible’ an apology.
I’m the mother. And a nurse. With a quadriplegic cousin and a quadriplegic patient.
If my kids were doing flips into waist-deep water... or flips from much higher up into much deeper water with a shallow ledge visible quite close... they would be grounded for the summer.
Which is why mothers don’t find out about this kind of stuff until much much later. Says the kid who used to stand on one foot in a tree fifty feet up.
Grumpy! “Hey you damn kids, I tolja a thousand times to stay the hell outta my pond!”
That looks like fun. Thanks for the video. Btw, I watched the whole thing, did not fast forward.
It night have been good without the horrible music.
