Taking jumps further
8Booth began taking further risks, trawling the landscape for possible jumps, and making each one more dangerous than the last.
“There was a lot of scouting involved, planning the whole run the night before. You just keep looking at it [the jump], looking at it, and looking at it, and then it gets stuck in your head”.
The obstacles most people associate with working life are comparatively mundane in the context of 8Booth’s. No monthly work appraisals or nasty restaurant bosses for him, but he does have to jump off a 120ft jagged cliff-face into the rough, untamed seas below.
“The whole process takes two minutes, you’re in and out, most of the time, people don’t even know what happened. It’s great, it’s the best s–t”.
With 8Booth’s videos increasing in views and engagement, his profile continued to blossom. Bigger and more stomach-turning stunts seemed inevitable.
