"A lot of people think it's stupid." Yep. We do.

If at first you do succeed, try, try again?

After surviving a recent jump off a hotel balcony into a pool, a California daredevil decided to go back for round two. His landing was close — painstakingly so — but he made it ... and recorded the whole thing with a GoPro (see above).

In the video, the jumper (who goes by 8booth on YouTube and Instagram) appears to break into a hotel in Laguna Beach and then climb four or five stories of stairs before plunging off the balcony into the pool.

It's a near shot-for-shot remake of a similar stunt he pulled two weeks prior:

Following an unrelated jump in nearby Crystal Cove State Park, 8booth explained what makes him tick: “I love pushing it. I love filming,” he told CBS Los Angeles. “A lot of people think it’s stupid. But you know what, I think it’s stupid to sit in a cubicle all day.”

Unlike hotel swimming pools, that's pretty deep, bro.
