Malibu Thrill Seeker Johnny Strange Skydives onto the North Pole: VIDEO
Johnny Strange, a 20-year-old Malibu local, is no stranger to a little danger.
He climbed all of the the highest mountains on each continent -- known as the Seven Summits -- before he was even legal. In January 2011, just after turning 19, he visited the South Pole.
This week, he took it to another level by skydiving out of a helicopter onto the North Pole and becoming the youngest-ever person to complete the so-called Explorers Grand Slam -- reaching both poles and all Seven Summits.

Fewer than 30 people in the world have finished the challenge, but Strange did it before he could even legally celebrate it with a drink.
When he's not jumping out of helicopters and climbing the world's tallest mountains, the 20-year-old spends his time as an undergraduate at USC.
He told the L.A. Daily News:
"I'm a college student, and only have a limited amount of time to do these things before I step into the real world," Strange said. "I have to make the best out of what little time I have, and breaking this record is something I have been working towards for the past eight years."
Strange is also passionate about two causes -- ending genocide and curing Parkinson's disease. He often poses for pictures from throughout his adventures holding signs that say "Stop Genocide."
