Canadian Man Perfects the Art of the Flying Snowmobile

 A man from British Columbia turned his sled into a flying snowmobile. Really!

Eric Oddy has been teaching the world how to make their snowmobiles fly for some time now, and you can see an example right here.

Oddy was quoted in 2013 as saying,

“Many years ago I had my friend launch me off a mountain with a snowmobile… Ever since then I’ve thought, ‘Could we ever fly one of these things?’”

Well he can, he does, and you can see it right here:

Considered a pioneer in the sport, Oddy has been ‘parasledding’ for years now despite having to deflect the notion that he got the idea from a (James Bond) movie saying,

“I’ve had a lot of comments that it came from a James Bond movie. This idea did not come from no James Bond movie. It totally came up from my own creative ideas.”

Whatever the case, would you try this?

NEXT: YEAH, THAT’S A GUY WATER SKIING BEHIND A SNOWMOBILE
