With nothing but a steel cage between you and the sharks this activity is actually much safer than it sounds. Try telling your mom that though…

Skiing off a cliff in the French Alps
You take a helicopter up, ski down the first part, jump off a cliff, and parachute the rest of the way. Yes, people really do this.

For almost as long as there have been airplanes there have been people walking on their wings. At least these days you’ll probably get strapped in.
