According to French skydivers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, there is no fear in base jumping – they do it just for fun. “If you are scared, there is no fun.” The 2 must have had one hell of a time when they set the world record by jumping of the Vurj Khalifa building.

After taking practice jumps at the nearby Lauterbeunnen Mountain (and even a few jumps from a helicopter), Fugen and Reffet decided it was time to tackle Dubai’s tallest building. The Burj Khalifa structure towers 2,700 feet tall, and helped the two adrenaline junkies earn themselves a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the tallest BASE jump of all time.
