The Guinness world record for the tallest swing measures 88 m (288 ft 8 in) from the seat to the top of the cross bar and was constructed by B!g Rush (South Africa) in Durban, South Africa.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest swing dance was achieved by 291 participants in an event organised by Dansefestivalen i Sel v/Øystein Ulen in Dansefestivalen, Norway.
He said on his blog: "Ever since I was a little kid I was borrowing my parents' cameras to get the shot that no one else could ... that resulted in several cameras busted. "I have continued this passion ever since".
Shot over two days in Bootlegger Canyon, Moab Utah, the video features Graham's friends flying through the air, secured only by rock climbing ropes.
After investing a couple of hours in the set up of the ropes, the swingers swoop under the Corona Arch, to which the swing is connected by five different anchors.
