New extreme footage from Experience Series


Australian company Experience Series and B.A.S.E. jumping athlete Jarno Cordia successfully take the world of wingsuiting to a new extreme.

Netherlands, August 25 – Today small team of wingsuit athletes successfully flew around the Euromast building, Rotterdam, in a courageous effort to inspire the world.

Jumping from a helicopter at 2,500ft the athletes reached roughly 350km over the town and past the 590ft tower before opening roughly 3 seconds from the ground.

Squadron leader, Jarno Cordia, is one of the world’s most experienced wingsuiters who believes that events like this have the ability to change our lives.

The 36 year old is arguably the best technical flyer in the sport and his recent ventures into B.A.S.E. have shown some of the most precise flying skills around.

He said: “Every jump comes with risk but we want to demonstrate that no matter how scary the obstacle is, together we can overcome fear and live through shared experiences.”

Ossie Khan is the event organiser and CEO of Experience Series, the adventure sports content licensing and video production company behind the event.

He said: “Experience Series has been supporting athletes and entertaining audiences for almost three years and this was one of our most epic challenges to date.

Jarno and the team are at the top of their sport and I’m glad we can help them run amazing events like this.”
