In this video put together with the help of GoPro, the king of action videos, trials cyclist Danny MacAskill performs a front flip off of a ramp that's precariously placed on the edge of a cliff, free falling straight into the ocean below. The coolest part is that the video also shows how MacAskill went about preparing and planing for the big jump, which mostly consists of throwing rocks off the edge of the cliff to see where they land. 

Not the most scientific of methods, but it worked so who are are we to judge!? check it out below.
