I don't get why he did this. I mean it looks kinda awesome and he probably needed to make profit from his GoPro. But this **** don't require skills, he basically jumped from a roof, this isn't even parkour.

"But this **** don't require skills," nor does your grammar require proficiency, apparently.

Jabs aside, I guess the whole self entitled know it all comment didn't really work out for you? Besides, the guy that jumped - his name is Ethan Swanson, whom is a professional stunt man. My guess is just that you're not qualified for that sort of title.

But parkour is just getting from point a to point b in the most direct and efficient way. This is a lot quicker than going down the stairs and then walking around and all that lame stuff. Most parkour isn't crazy stuff, and only freerunning is flashy and stylish.

Honestly, like any other sport, the pros make it look so easy.   
   
To get to where he landed, he will have had to been running at the just the right speed, jumped the exact right height, he would have to know how to slide down the roof and stay in the right position without rolling over or being set off course, and get the landing perfect.   
   
It is so easy to miscalculate the speed and jump, hit the roof or drag on it and be turned over, or land poorly and injure yourself.   
   
And aside the skills, you need to be slightly nuts to even consider doing this. Requires the biggest of balls.

Do that without breaking your legs without parkour training.

Actually falling and landing is pretty simple unless we're talking about high impact mitigation. As it stands all you have to do in this case is relax your legs a bit and let them bend to increase the impulse time, thus decreasing the amount of force on your bones at any given time.

In other words, what every human being already does when they land. Even if they don't understand what it is they are doing.

Then again if you look at the video he doesn't really bend his legs. So I imagine what probably happened is he grabbed onto the bar he passed over to prevent himself from slamming into the support pole in the middle. Which is the same degree of impressive in that it isn't very impressive.

There's significantly more to landing than what you do with your legs.

I kinda think he did break at least one of them, judging by the way he landed.

In the video he gets up and keeps going.
