Danny MacAskill’s Cascadia VIDEO

by 7

Danny returns to the small (and smaller) screens once again in this romp across Gran Canaria’s rooftops – Bond-style. Gleaming sunshine, great colours and blue skies are a great antidote to British rainy blues.

Rockin’ one minute, rooftops the next, Danny’s been busy

It’s shot on GoPro (who incidentally has just split from importers, Madison) with lots of scary ‘Danny-eye view’ scenes as we get to ride with him (and imagine what 20ft drops-to-flat must feel like…)

Danny was free to manoeuvre his way around the city from a unique perspective. “The architecture, colors and lifestyle with all the animals on Gran Canaria really spoke to me, and straight away I knew this would be perfect for what I wanted to create. I wanted people watching to really feel the vertigo which is why I wanted to be riding right on the edge, capturing GoPro POV footage.”

Yeah, we can all do that too, right?

SPOILER ALERT!
Assuming you’ve now watched the video, you can read on:
“I really wanted to finish the clip with something memorable, so a 70-foot (20 metre) front flip from one of the rooftops into the sea seemed about right. After a few speed checks, I just went for it and the cameras caught it perfectly so thankfully I didn’t have to do it again. It was actually quite good fun!”

Not jealous. And think of your bearings anyway…
