Scotty Bob Morgan is different than most athletes I’ve had on the show.  His focus on Proximity Flying, one of the most high-risk activities on the planet, creates a life that is different than your traditional action sports athlete.  There are no huge paydays, organized ways to get exposure, or even a good way to learn.  You need a heavy dose of sky, BASE, and wingsuit experience combined with huge balls in order to live to tell these tales.  With a background as a combat photographer and dude that jumps off of everything, Scotty Bob has both.  He’s not a household name, but that doesn’t matter, he’s a badass who does crazy shit and is looked at as an innovator in his sport.
