He's got some giant stones. Some giant, forceful, in-your-face, beat-up-your-bodyguard and send-him-running-home-to-his-mamma stones.

Just got an email from Ben, it is his thoughts and how it went. He is a monster, glad he's well.
Hey man good hearing from you. This falls was right
up your alley. Super high water and softer than many
30 footers that I have run. I am not 100% sure about
how tall it is but I know it is around 30 feet taller
than the length of my throw bag.

I have also been checking out some footage of a boat
test that we did on a measured 140 foot falls. It
takes the empty boat exactly 3 seconds to go pool to
pool. This is interesting because I always assumed
that 3 seconds should get you about 100 feet of free
fall, but it seems this is absolutely not the case.
By the pure idealized equation, 3 seconds gets you 144
feet of pure gravity fed freefall. With the boat test
as evidence, it seems like we are not getting much
slowing due to atmospheric drag, so 100 feet should be
about 2.5 seconds worth of fall.

But the rub with my falls is that I fall into the
spray about 2/3 of the way down and disapear so the
true time of freefall is hard to tell. I'll let my
pears be the judge... but at the end of the day I had
to swim free do to getting pined up against the wall
and the massive boil at the bottom, so it would not be
a successful attempt in the case that this falls is
over 32.6 meters (the current record at Alexandria).

Really I was just stoked to get to run the biggest
drop of my life without a scratch.

thanks for the email,


Gotta love him!

The video is one you can see if you watch Hotel Charlie 3, did you watch the video link? It is got one of the biggest film road tours of anyone for like the past 7 years except for the year he starred in Twitch V, dangerous stunts.

Stones boys and girls. The kind of stones that crush your car on Good Friday. Big, iron-side stones. The kind that make most grown men cry...stones.

He was going to fire it in an Allstar but his balls wouldn't fit.
