In case you were unable to witness Kuwait’s first-ever base jumps (Skyfall 414) LIVE & in full color, no worries! Here is a video shot by the “Douggs” himself, most likely from a GoPro cam. The video shows both base jumps, and from what we can tell, he seemed to have had an UNBELIEVABLE time doing them!
As per his YouTube channel:
“The raw hand cam and head cam from the first ever base jumps in Kuwait. the exit point was very bad and unstable so i kicked like a bitch and i got a big booga on the camera and on my face on opening. But the one handed landing made up for the other clumsy stuff. More to come in the Middle East….Game on P.S. Thanks to Camco Global events for making it happen!”
KUWAIT, March 13 (KUNA) — Culture and arts are vital elements to the development of any nation, Secretary General of the National Council for Culture, Arts, and Letters (NCCAL) Ali Al-Youha stressed said. He emphasized the importance of inducing cultural activities as part of the educational process. “Man is the backbone of any society. To build a society, there is a need to build a better man by providing three vital elements: media, education and culture.” Government, private sector and investors should all participate in a movement ot elevate cultural activities in the country by providing the necessary infrastructure and the needed resources, he added.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Project (NYP) council member said that Kuwait has proved, throughout history, which it has many strong points in arts and culture, especially, since the country’s constitution nurtures and encourages creativity and innovation in all scientific and literary realms.
