Just when I thought I had heard it all.....flesh hook bungee jumping?
I guess I am boring and normal after all....

Bungee jumping is dangerous enough as it is, but this team of Russian daredevils is taking it to an entirely different level.

Known as the Sinner Team, the adventurists forgo the usual safety harness and affix bungee cords directly to their skin. The team calls this form of free fall suspension bungee jumping "The Challenge."

Founded by Stanislav Aksenov and his wife Elena in 2008, the Sinner Team performs a wide variety of body suspension feats, but did not begin adapting the practice to bungee jumping until 2010, according to a 2012 documentary about the group.

As seen in the documentary, entitled "The Birth," Aksenov and the team started off small, performing 10-meter suspension swings before trying the technique on a larger scale. Since then, the Sinner Team has slowly pushed the label, jumping from higher locations and attaching the bungee hooks to various areas of the body, such as the knee, for example.


There's video at the link.....
