Danny MacAskill’s Rooftop-Hopping Stunt Video Will Give You Vertigo

Cycling superstar Danny MacAskill's latest awe-inducing video follows the trials rider as he descends the beach town of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, to the ocean. MacAskill, who came to fame for feats of balance and his ability to jump over and off nearly any object in front of him, takes the hard way down, leaping from rooftop to rooftop with his bike.

The video, shot with his sponsor, GoPro, took two years to come together from the initial concept of flowing rooftop stunts. Las Palmas, a town in the Canary Islands, was specifically chosen for its reliable sunshine and tightly packed buildings with flat roofs. MacAskill said he and the crew simple went knocking on doors to get roof access, and most locals were happy to accommodate.
