Happy holidays! Get ready for 2014!
Matthias Giraud aka "Super Frenchie" goes BASE jumping with thirty-three base jumpers from 15 countries gathered in China's Guizhou Province to tackle the 1,200 foot high Balinghe Bridge in Anshun City. Perfect place to try the new Matthias boot by Cushe Footwear and the new Hero 3 Plus by GoPro! Music by ONRA - Chinoiseries Part 2 www.soundcloud.com/onra
Nick Woodman was recently interviewed by Anderson Cooper on the show 60 Minutes on CBS. Look for Super Frenchie in the opening segment of the piece! It is truly an honored to be featured in this with my GoPro family.

I just got back from the Google Zeitgeist 2013 event in Phoenix, Arizona and it was an absolutely amazing experience and met some incredible people! I was truly honored to present GoPro there with CEO Nick Woodman to a very accomplished audience while being interviewed by Morgan Spurlock. I never get phased by public speaking after many segments on TV but this one got my heart going even if it was only in front of 350 people! One of the speakers there cured cancer and MC Hammer was in the audience! It was very humbling to be able to talk about my passion for skiing and BASE jumping to such accomplished individuals.
Channel 5 in the UK gave me a call a little while ago to be on a show called the World's Greatest Daredevils. It is now playing on Discovery Europe. I had the honor to be featured with some of the best extreme athletes in the world and the production crew was really fun and friendly. If you were ever wondering what was the behind the scene of the GoPro Avalanche Cliff Jump or if you missed it on TV in Europe, enjoy the following piece. It's about 45 minutes long and the avalanche ski BASE is around 11 minutes.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to go on a BASE jumping trip to Thailand with Puddle Monkey Productions, a production company working on very popular shows such as Sister Wives. Our jump crew was epic with Suz Graham (pro skier), Whitney McVey from the show Thrillbillies, Jesse Hall and Marshall Miller from the GoPro Bomb Squad. I never thought that I would end up BASE jumping in the jungle of Thailand and land on a beautiful beach with such a great crew! Here is what it looked like!
