After the jump he posted on social media saying “This was one of my favourite jumps from the Europe adventure. Triple flip over the handrail with a nice long fall. I stayed super relaxed and just let my body do it’s thing.”
Reluctant Role Model
Despite his legions of followers Reinford as been hesitant to encourage his fans to get into base jumping. On June 25th Reinford tragically lost his base jumping mentor after a joint jump went wrong. After the loss he posted an emotional statement on social media.
“don’t start BASE jumping because you think it’s cool, or because you think I’m cool. And don’t do it unless you are ready to see death up close and personal. Is it worth your life? For some it is. For me it is, but I don’t want my friends or fans to start BASE. I can’t handle another loss.”
