i know what you mean about the whole 'extreme' term >= P

i'd say hanging out at the drop zone is just like going on a climbing trip with a bunch of mates, you're just out doing what you love, there's no real intent to go out and feel like you're doing something stupid

i can't really comment on BASE jumping that much coz the main contact i've had is through jumpers who also skydive, never done it myself, but i think the real sporting aspect comes in with the ability to do ariels off the launch (very similar to spring board diving, a lot of BASE jumpers use the pool to train for this), track AWAY from the cliff/object, fly your canopy accurately and most importantly, to read the conditions and work out if you actually should be jumping

just for info, there's some good stuff on the Australian BASE Association site
