Liquid Mountaineering

It’s not often a new faddy sport blows me away. Parkour has had its moments, but face-planting gravel lost its appeal quickly. Wing-suit jumping is INSANELY cool but lets face it, I get nervous standing on my tip-toes. And ever meet the guy who survived the wingsuit crash? Yeah me neither. Liquid Mountaineering is something different. Not in a long time have I come across an athletic endeavor quite as… divine. As biblical. Yes ladies and gentlemen. A group of heroes in Geres, Portugal have, through a symphonic understanding of angles,  speed and viscosity, mastered the art of running on water. Liquid Mountaineering – nothing Hi-TEC, nothing out of the realms of possibilities.. Just man and water… Man on water. F it’s cool!
