 So what's the best movie segment he has done? Best trick, photo, line skied, cliff BASEd?


I looked for his Claim segment which blew me away, couldn't find it, but did find this.

I enjoyed the clip Erik.  Even the bad guys are great skiers.

Great idea. Here's some clips I found on youtube.




Nice interview:

The first movie I saw him in was Focused, and I later bought the rest of the Matchstick movies mostly cause he and Seth were just so damn good all those years together. Watching him rip down that huge face with the jumping WATER SKIS was simply amazing...not to mention never seeing a ski-BASE, let alone hear of it being done, then seeing him huck those 500'+ cliffs. That was some seriously inspiring stuff he was doing.

Wow, watching those segements is nothing short of mesmerizing . Just unbelievable stuff. The tragedy of his death is so unfortunate, beacuse you just believed he was bullet proof. The reality is, those stunts were really really dangerous , even if you were Shane McConkey.


I don't know what to think, for those who push the envelope, you can only admire them for being fearless and hold them in awe, when they pay the ultimate price with their own life, its very sobering. He loved that winged suit and being able to fly.
