Jokke Sommer

Norway

The most important thing is to enjoy your life. To be happy is all that matters.

Jokke Sommer started skydiving in the summer of 2007 with the modest goal of having fun with a sport he had dreamed of doing for many years. He liked it enough to know he wanted more and eight months after he started, he went to the USA for two months to make enough skydives to start BASE jumping. When he stepped off the edge of a 1,000-meter cliff in Kjerag, Norway, a few months later, he knew that he had found his biggest passion in life. Jokke soon became known around the world as one of the most intense, driven wingsuit BASE jumpers around, and he just as quickly set new standards for aggressive flight lines and close-to-the-ground terrain flying, as chronicled in his YouTube series The Dreamlines and his Perfect Flight web series. Outside media took notice and soon he was working for and being featured on TV and film projects. Jokke placed 10th in the 2012 Grand Prix and, as always, he’ll be one of the most intense competitors at this year’s race – and one of the audience favorites too!
