Jumping, Walking Stilts



This young man was striding towards my direction just like that, briskly and fast, when I was taking pictures at Dago Car-Free Day last week. Frankly speaking, I was quite surprised by the gear he was walking on: stilts!

These stilts were not quite like any I'd seen before though. A friend of mine told me later that they were jumping-walking stilts, which he said was becoming a trendy curiosity among some young people here.

I wonder if they are difficult to use, uncomfortable or rather tiring?

Probably very fast, allowing high jumps indeed. Nevertheless, missing a brake ...

A safe road ahead for him.
