I can ride a unicycle, but after watching that video, my skills seem more like somebody who claims they can ride a bike, but still uses training wheels.

Nicely done, sir!

Wow. Very cool. It looks a little like riding a rodeo bull --one hand and all.

Unigeezer, I have to disagree. It's people who embrace life that rule, and clearly you do.

I'm blown away every time!

Two technical questions:

1. At one minute in, the camera seems to pan, but I don't think you had a cameraman. Is that something you can do with the video (post shooting)?

2. At 1:17 it seems like you have two cameras shooting your jump, but you just did the same jump twice, with the camera moved between shots, right? You thought you'd fool us, right?

Thanks for posting it!

Thanks again guys! The music is by the "Voyaguers" called "The distance". I didn't have anyone panning the camera; I just used an "ease in" and "ease out' effect while editing, that zooms in or out on the clip. You're right Al, The two jumps were separately filmed.
