He's been at it again... jumping off cranes! There have been a couple of Caribbean island buildings, a rather large hotel in Dubai and countless other more incidental obstacles that he's hopped off or over since 2011, but it was that first leap off the crane onboard a grounded tanker in Table View, Cape Town that put the Great Dane on the map of stunts.
After the ship 'Leap Heart' came on his radar this spring, Nick managed to make contact with the captain, securing his crew a short window of opportunity to make jump 2.0 possible.
