Skyaking, Freefall Skydiving in a Kayak

In this video from 2011, Miles Daisher is shown freefall ‘skyaking’ (skydiving in a kayak). The footage was uploaded by Barcroft TV on YouTube.

Danger man Miles Daisher casts a bizarre image paddling across the sky – 13,000 feet up in a KAYAK. The daredevil has turned extreme sport skydiving on its head after deciding to jump out of a plane in equipment normally used only in water – giving birth to ‘skyaking’. His barmy spin on the risky hobby means anyone looking up will draw a blank when they ask: “Is it a bird? Is it a plane?” But the answer will become clear when crazy Miles swoops in at 50mph and lands on the water in spectacular fashion. The unbelievable antics of the 40-year-old, from Twin Falls, Idaho, are set to explode onto the worldwide silver screen in a sensational new 3D film on skydiving, BASE jumping, wingsuit flying and skyaking.
