Video: A diver, jumper and all-around daredevil who goes by 8Booth decided to do a bit of creative trespassing near California’s Crystal Cove.

He leapt from an outcropping known as “el morro”, but apparently misjudged how far the rocks jutted out below. (Because no one would intentionally cut it this close, one hopes.) “I walked away from this jump with a minor scrape on my back. How? I do not know,” the video’s description reads.

What one earth was he thinking? Probably something like: Ohhhhhhhh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit for most of the way down.
