But since it's summertime, and the adrenaline junkie was skydiving in the Arizona desert where temperatures can reach a scorching 113 degrees, he figured a good way to keep cool was with a graceful land right onto a 200-foot-long Slip 'N Slide.
"The weather was very hot and we were trying to figure out a fun way to cool off in between jumps," Daniel, co-founder of Axis Flight School in Eloy, Arizona, explains in the YouTube video's description. "It was a great way to end the day."
The incredible video of the near vertical descent has amassed more than 30,000 views since it was originally posted on July 16.
But this tricky 5,000-foot-high leap with a GoPro camera attached to his helmet is certainly not for the faint of heart.
"This type of landing has a higher risk associated with it," Daniel added. "It takes many thousands of jumps and years to learn."
