The daredevil himself, Pavel Olshansky

With Moscow’s recent snow storm a daredevil has drafted up the idea of jumping off a skyscraper. As if the idea was not mind-boggling already the man plans to do it while riding a snow board. If all goes to plan then this event will set a new world record.

A Russian daredevil is planning to pull off a breathtaking stunt: a base jump off a 60-story skyscraper in Moscow with a snowboard, breaking the world record. This will be 1000th jump for the fearless skydiver. Watch LIVE here on RT.

Base jumper, snowboarder and sky-surfer Pavel Olshansky is going to mark his milestone jump by leaping off the 264-meter ‘Imperia’ skyscraper in the Moscow City business district on February 25.

But it will not be a regular jump, as Pavel will be geared up with a snowboard.

He will first take off from a ramp on a snowboard to gain speed, then perform a backflip and jump off with a parachute.
