Look up. That's what Erik Roner's view of the US Open of Surfing looked like this summer. In fact, Roner's view is more often than not a bird's eye perspective of things. Basically, he really likes jumping out of things, a lot. In the latest installment, Erik revisits his US Open helicopter jump with Burnquist and Escamilla, races a light weight truck for the first time, and like always, shows his son Oskar the finer things in life — this time extreme tubing. Infuse your afternoon YouTube perusal with Erik Roner's latest edit here.
Erik Roner, our favorite Nitro Circus-accredited big mountain skier and sky diving BASE jumper, just dropped a new Roner Vision.

Meanwhile, back in Lake Tahoe, little Oskar Roner gets up to what Oskar always gets up to...
We're going to go out on a limb here and say this is the first time we've seen skiing, motocross, a raging party, a basejumping infant and an avalanche scare all in one video. And who else besides Erik Roner could have been crazy enough to make it? Get a glimpse into Erik's not-so-mellow life in the latest episode of Roner Vision, right here.
Erik's latest episode of Roner Vision has a little bit of everything in it.

After finally giving into the smell of fresh Cinnabon, Erik Roner arrives in Portillo, Chile to chase summer snow in the Andes -- one of the most beautiful places on earth. As you would expect, Erik gets into some shenanigans. This time it involves a backflip and wet landing. Check it out here.
After his first few blog entries, our favorite skier slash base jumper slash Nitro Circus crew member thought it would be better if we scrapped the words and photos version of his blog (so 2008) and go straight to video.

From helmet mount footage during his sky dive on Sunday to port-a-potty interviews, dude got some of the best moments to come out of this year's US Open. Click through to the video (we're gonna go out on a limb and guarantee it'll make you squeak out a few laughs).
