Hi, my name is Marco Fürst. My discipline is skydiving. My friends call me. My special talent is patience. My philosophy of life is there are no problems, only challenges. My favourite food is mama’s lasagne. My favourite music is everything that makes me dance.

Bio

Since the beginning of his skydive career in 2009, Marco Fürst has pushed himself to reach his goals. "There are no problems," says the 24-year-old, "only challenges. I try always solution-oriented thinking and to give my best in each jump. "

Since 2014, Fürst has been part of the Red Bull Skydive Team and is a much-valued member with all his expertise and creativity: "My goal is to work together with the Red Bull Skydive Team to share my passion for skydiving," says Fürst: "I want to help to push the boundaries of what is possible in a safe way and to inspire people like this. "

In May 2015 Marco Fürst, together with four Red Bull Skydive colleagues, jumped over an Indonesian volcano from a helicopter hovering 4,000m above. The result was an unprecedented flight over Mount Bromo: "It was an incredible experience to jump over a volcano" says Fürst , "Flying right over the volcano was something none of us had ever experienced."

It is precisely these experiences that drive Marco Fürst today: "In 2009, I jumped out of a plane for the first time," Fürst recalls: "The incredible feeling of freedom, and the ability to use the airspace as a huge playground, fascinate me to this day. "
