Exit Point #17 - Matt Gerdes

In 2012 Matt founded Squirrel, a company that manufacturers wingsuits, parachutes, and BASE jumping equipment. Among many other articles and publications Matt wrote the Great Book of BASE which is arguably the most comprehensive piece of writing on the sport. We talk to Matt about his early days in BASE, how he has seen the sport develop, and his process as a test pilot.  We dive into what motivates him to improve BASE jumping educational material and develop new technology in BASE.  Matt's links: www.squirrel.wshttps://base-book.com/
