This adrenaline junkie proves he's a class act by bringing his skyfall to an end with pinpoint precision on a 200ft slip-n-slide
Watch the amazing parachuting finale that daredevil Niklas Daniel pulls off when he ends his fall on a giant water slide.
The US skydiver makes a near vertical descent after leaping out of a DHC-6 Twin Otter as it cruises over Arizona at 5,000 feet.
The GoPro camera he was wearing on his helmet shows the cool dude's gradual descent towards the ground before splashing down onto the slide and aquaplaning at 50mph until he stops.
Niklas, who has over 8,000 jumps behind him and runs a flight school in the States, said: "The weather was very hot and we were trying to figure out a fun way to cool off in between jumps.
"It was a great way to end the day."
The footage begins with Niklas and fellow skydiver Brianne Thompson seen smiling at the camera as they wait their turn to jump.
Showing no sign of nerves, having completed nearly 20,000 jumps between them, the professional skydivers nonchalantly leap out -- despite being just 5,000ft above the ground.
The normal height for a skydive is roughly 13,000ft.
It meant they had to perform a tricky 'hop and pop' routine where they immediately pull their parachute after free falling for only a few seconds.
The duo can be seen casually gliding towards an airstrip in the Arizona desert - where temperatures can rise to 45C.
The scorching heat prompted the pair to set up the stunt in a bid to cool off after a packed day of teaching sky diving at their Axis Flight School.
Niklas added: "This type of landing has a higher risk associated with it.
"It takes many thousands of jumps and years to learn."
