Is this Micheal "Mad Mike" Baleta some kind of crazy person?Surfing giant waves paddle-in style and bouldering ,moving 16-wheelers on highways seems to be this oke's daily norm.I am compelled to suggest that this daredevil mentality, often accompanied by a significant chunk of irresponsibility, should not be romanticised nor idealised, for reckless endangerment should never gain any popularity in general climbing ethos.

I dont believe "reckless endangerment" will ever become main stream, it takes a touched kind of person to push things that far to the edge and most of us dont want to go there. But I think its great that those people are out there, its awesome to see the potential of human beings (If it wasnt for Evil Knievel we wouldnt have x-treme motorcross :D ). Secondly, most of the nutters who do this sort of thing seem to survive their exploits so I think they must be doing something right.

Nutters...? Relative theory. The guy next to me in my office thinks I'm a nut for rock climbing. I think Stuart (guy on the wave) is a nut. Stuart probably thinks base-jumpers are nuts......and we all think the guy next to me in the office is a nut! :lol:
