Shane Murphy: A Wingsuit Pioneer

//Shane Murphy: A Wingsuit Pioneer

“It’s not tragic to die doing what you love”. Truer words have rarely been spoken then when they came from Bodhi in the greatest movie of all time. With that in mind, I pay tribute to Shane Murphy, a 29 year old wingsuit pioneer who’d done over a thousand jumps and lost his life on August 7, 2012 in the Chamonix mountains in Switzerland, just weeks after Chamonix passed a ban on the practice. A sad, but not tragic, end to an inspiring life and a seriously cool dude.
