The Skywalk

Alex Thomson takes to the skies for his latest extreme sailing stunt.

After completing a mast walking stunt in 2014, Alex Thomson has pulled off another extreme sailing stunt with the Skywalk. Thomson traveled to Alvor, Portugal, to accomplish this adrenaline-filled feat with the help of Hugo Boss and Mercedes-Benz.

While kitesurfing, Thomson attached a line from his IMOCA open 60 Hugo Boss racing yacht, to his board and immediately rose over 280 feet in the air. He then severed the connection to the IMCA 60 and glided back down to the water, landing without a scratch.

A skywalk, indeed.
