    Hang in there Jeb, you’ll be back to 100% soon! :) –Eric

      The female perspective, begs to differ! Ohhh, no, they are fine. They create a silhouette against the sky, that a stumpy-fireplug of a guy just can’t. His jumps aren’t just daring. They’re artistically beautiful. Air sculpture. Made to fly. Looks great in a wetsuit, too.

    so are shin guards going to be part of the flying apparel now?

    would recommend you lympathic drainage for a faster and better rehab…
    and a good physical therapy :-)

    Awesome Jeb!
    I had two broken ankles and a spiral fracture of the right tib/fib with a big halo and pins everywhere back in 2002, I got sick of the question “howdya do that?!” So I started telling people “just make sure you pack yer own chute!” they would then trip out and I would finally tell them the truth…. I did it riding a beach cruiser bicycle poppin a wheelie!! But it was such a cooler story about my skydiving.
    So, if you ever get sick of telling your amazing cool story, go ahead and feel free to use my beach cruiser story! Haha
    Take care and don’t rush the rehab, you’ll feel it years later!
    Fly low and avoid the radar!

    that looking a lot better now, you will soon be up there with the other sky gods:-)

  9. tom says:

    Looks like your legs need a shower :-) Next time, you’d better upload a picture of Roberta’s leg. It’s not such ugly at yours ! ;-)
    Have a good time home and we’re all glad that you’re *just* injured but still on your feet.
    Enjoy the rest, enjoy your friends, enjoy the rest of your life.

    Not pretty but it is alive and kicking to get going….

  11. Marc Baker says:

  13. James Jones says:

    Jeb, I watch your videos and I all most cry with joy. I’m 70 and retired. My last jump was 5 years ago. I was in the 82th Airborne and I was with the first group that did Halo’s off the tail gate of a C130 from 13,000 ft. It was one the most proudest moments of my life out side the birth of my kid’s. Keep flying Jeb, keep flying for those of us who can’t fly any more. Jaybo

  14. Debra Chase says:

    Wow, that’s coming along great. You’ve come a long way. xx

  15. Corey says:

    Nice grafting. Mine looks hideous after five years. Keep up the good healing.

  16. Jonny says:

  17. laplace says:

  18. Alexandra says:

  19. Scott says:

    Some critter up on that mountain surly must have enjoyed a slice of Jebacon from that… haha
    GWS

  20. Keith says:

    Not too bad at all; glad you’re OK; I would not mind dieing doing what you do; which completely freaks my wife out! p.s. You have finger toes! I think there must be some bat DNA which would explain a LOT!

  21. Jarrett says:

    Dude, you should get a tattoo around that scar when it heals…. Those are some long, squirrel like toes you got there. Looks like your good to go :)

  22. Jimmy says:

    Just wondering if your left leg hit the rocks or just your right leg? Looked like a violent hit. Glad you made it out ok! This world needs people like you in it.

  23. Kerig says:

    Jeb, your healing powers are amazing! Have you checked whether you also have an Adamantium skeleton ? :-)
    I found your videos just recently and my whole family enjoys them. I’m dreadfully afraid of heights, so thank you for allowing me to participate, through your cameras, a realm that I can only experience in short bursts within my dreams.
    Heal well!

  24. Simon Leigh says:

    Hey dude

    Glad to see the wounds are healing and healing quick too. But how are the bones getting along? Are you still using crutches or are you managing to get along without?

    All the best man.

    Simon

  25. aaron bohan says:

    looks good wounds heal and chicks dig scars, hope for a speedy recovery. your vids have converted me from racing motocross to getting my skydiving licence, looks like you have more fun then me, hope to bump into and jump with u one day.keep up the good work.p.s my 4 year old boy thinks your the best and now runs around the house like a bird

  26. Bill says:

    Healing well and itching too .Your doctor’s did a nice job with the graft and you should be getting your knee’s in the breeze soon. I’ve watched the video several times and thought how close you came to impacting your knee or worse. That was too close Jeb and you have nothing to prove.Get well bro !

  27. Erica says:

    Jeb I have never met you but I’ve seen your stunts like most of your followers… Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I think about you every single day since I was introduced to you on HBO’s Real Sports. Although what you do scares the (bleep) out of me I have a lot of respect for a man like that has so much passion. For that I respect you and believe in you. Stay safe you crazy man you!! Safe… Fun choice of words on my part! You have to be doing the most unsafe sport known to man. Is it considered a sport? Oh goodness just please keep entertaining people like me and dont do anything stupid…er! Peace sweetie! To a speedy recovery!

  28. Jeff says:

    Jeb,

    Big fan of your work! Glad you are on the road to recovery. Take care!

  29. Jim Wisneski says:

    Say Jeb, that scar kinda looks like either a tadpole, or a smoking joint. Boy have you got stories to tell!!

  30. Jim Wisneski says:

    Jeb, forgot to mention, the new website is really well done, the whole black thing and that eternal image of you ‘Grinding the Crack”, I first saw at 2M views, NOT long ago, and now its well over 10M!!! The joy you give me, free from PAIN, is beyond comparison in your videos. So glad your healing well!

  31. Emilie says:

    Hello from France!
    I’m so relieved that you’re OK. No more crashes please ;)
    Get well soon! x0x

  32. Carlos Mitchell says:

    In the dimension of rocks and 120 miles/hours that is a minor scratch . By the way Jeb, you are the best, not Jokke.. :)

  33. Chi Chi Dourado Dean says:

  34. CLOUDSBUTTERFLY says:
