Jokke Sommer is a true thrillseeker mostly known for airy flights and fearless lifestyle. Looking back, he has always been fascinated by everything that could fly and dreamed one day to fly himself. When he matured, his childhood dream faded and he started a career in Motocross. This sport became his biggest passion and an important part of his youth. After several years of riding, he started to Freestyle and built his own Freestyle Motocross park where he and his friends met to ride and fly. At the age of 21 he and his close friend Jørgen decided, to start skydiving and they completed an Acellerated Free Fall skydiving course. He sold his dirt bikes and became a licensed skydiver. To gain the required experience he travelled to the United States and completed 250 jumps in two months. After watching dozens of Wingsuit flying videos, he had no doubt, this was what he also wanted to do! His non-jumping spare time was spent researching BASE Jumping. After returning to Norway he signed up for a BASE jumping course and travelled to Kjerag to make his first jump. Starting to BASE jump changed his life and his determination made him an expert athlete in the sport.
Since then he has had a solid career within Wingsuit Flights and BASE Jumping. In Norway Jokke became really publicly known through the TV serie Oppdrag Sognefjorden in 2010/11. This again led to his first contract with Red Bull and later he has made 5 TV shows, as well as many nerve wrecking stunts around the world. With fear as a motivation for pushing limits, his childhood flying dreams has in the later years extended further and brought him into Speed flying, Paragliding and Big Wave Surfing also.
