Lunatic Fringe - Mark Norman

In this episode I get the chance to sit down with one of skydivings true ambassadors.  Having come up in the sport during times of great change and innovation, Mark recalls what it was like to be there "when". Through struggles with burnout and addiction, he's persevered to cultivate a love for skydiving, its community and all the lessons he's learned, and freely shares them with me.

On this episode of Lunatic Fringe Into the Void I get the chance to talk one on one with Jarrett Martin who at a very young age had already ventured far down the road of truly extreme sports. With age comes wisdom as the saying goes, and Jarrett's true and hard earned wisdom comes from living through and pushing far past what would make most fade into the shadows. Coming back from serious injury and adversity, Jarrett shows us firsthand through his experience just how strong people can be.

Melissa Nelson Lowe.  A stand alone name in skydiving to say the least. Professional skydiver, competitor and holder of an obscene number of world records, this is one lady that doesn't have to stretch her personal story one bit; yet as the twice published author of two books highlighting the outrageous and almost unbelievable adventures of her father, one might think she was an extremely creative fiction writer and not just chronicling the exploits of a man who helped shape modern skydiving. In this episode of Lunatic Fringe you'll get personal insights into a life less ordinary, and what it means to try and step out of the shadows and shine brightly on your own.

Total Fuckin' Ninja (nerd)! In fact, I'd personally go as far as to call him not only one of the first true tunnel ninja's, but one who has shaped modern body flight as much if not more than anyone else. Coming from humble beginnings in one of the first public tunnels in the world, Ray Kubiak went from being one of the most difficult students in the Las Vegas Flyaway tunnel to being a pioneer in teaching true human flight. Overcoming adversity and turning it not only into opportunity but in fact a blessing, Ray is the embodiment of heart and spirit in our sport.

Ellis Danho Bourbonnais is the quintessence of a renaissance man to say the least, but most certainly not in the way most people would think. From surfing in the Gulf and then Hawaii, to MMA, skydiving, BASE jumping and climbing, Ellis is more at home pushing his personal limits than most people are on a sofa. Attacking new passions whole heartedly is where he's at his best, and he takes this time to give us a few of the reasons why.

Mas Di Siena's entrance into skydiving wasn't exactly smooth, and was a start that would have dissuaded more than most from pushing to reach the level in our sport that he has. Hell, it would have kept most playing video games instead. Ex competitor, professional skydiving instructor and proud as hell meat hauler, Mas has a shiny outlook and happy disposition that most "working" skydivers should strive for, a great way to approach life in general, and a singing voice that's simply to die for...
