The Norwegian André Bach is one of the pioneers of the international base jumping scene and started, like the most of them, as a reckless young man who had only one focus: B.A.S.E. jumping. In “Portrait of a Serial Jumper” Bach describes how his recklessness has changed without losing his passion. He moved from Oslo to the country and his new role as a husband and father has strongly affected the extreme athlete. Now precaution is his constant companion during his projects. Meanwhile his passion now is more than just a crazy hobby – it has become a mission and profession. André Bach shows that recklessness and responsible behaviour do not exclude one another.
