Top 20 Most Unusual EXTREME SPORTS


Everybody needs to try something new every
now and then- it’s what makes life exciting, that very act of doing something you’ve
never done before. Maybe it’s time to try a new, more thrilling
sport. From cave climbing to skydiving, I’m Lorenzo
from Insane Curiosity, and here are the top 20 sports you need to try before you die. 20.) Heli-Skiing Are you tired of waiting in lift lines when
you’re hitting the slopes? Try to picture yourself being dropped by a
helicopter on fresh snow. Heli-skiing is legitimately a powder lovers’
dream come true.You’re skiing in some of the most gorgeous terrain in the country. However, skiing in remote areas that aren’t
monitored by resort employees or surveillanced by rescue personnel is pretty risky. You could cause an avalanche or be hurt in
an incident with little access to aid. Regardless, this is one of the most fun sports
in the world, for those who favor danger, of course. 19.) Surfing Surfing, if it isn’t obvious enough, happens
to be a severely famous beach-friendly extreme sport and is competed all over the world. Checking out some pretty gnarly and high waves
on a board and being washed out toward the land is something that the vast community
of surfers loves to be able to experience. Try out surfing the next time you get a chance
to have a beach holiday, but only if the waves are big enough. Until then, let The Beach Boys tell you how
its done. 18.) Bungee Jumping Bungee Jumping is one of the most thrilling
extreme sports and it is tried by many people who are fans of adventurous and risky sports. This includes leaping off a gigantic structure,
while the player is connected to an elastic rope. Usually, jumping is done from stationary objects
such as building, bridge or a natural rock structure. However every now and then people also jump
from the moving objects such as hot air balloons and helicopters. The cord stretches out when the person jumps. The jumper zooms upwards again as the cord
recoils. The person bounces up and down, till the energy
is gone. 17.) Hiking Anyone who is generally a fan of the act of
walking or even jogging, you’ll most definitely enjoy hiking and the hardships it distributes. It’s great to get off that beaten path while
at the same time walking through changes in elevation and different beautiful sights. The changes in elevation — which usually
come in the forms of little climbs and downhill trekking — will work those muscles of yours
in ways that walking would probably never be able to, and soon enough, you can move
up to steeper hills and more challenging hikeable terrain. Just wear proper attire, assuming weather
conditions. 16.) Zorbing Whether it be the first person ever to scale
Mt. Everest, or creating commercial bungee jumping, New Zealanders are definitely hardcore
innovators of adventure. Kiwis also happen to be the very root of one
of the strangest extreme sports in the world, and that is Zorbing. Basically, Zorbing involves being strapped
into a huge rubber ball and then rolling downhill at speeds of up to 30 mph, so needless to
say this isn’t for people who have clinical motion sickness. No special skills are needed and it’s actually
pretty safe. Zorb Limited even brags that of the 100,000
or so people who’ve tried the sport, no one has ever puked inside the ball. 15.) Ice Diving There happens to be only one point of entrance
and exit in this risky sport. Diving way below the ice’s surface can be
very dangerous, however some find that it’s totally worth that risk of Hypothermia. Ice diving totally takes you into a totally
unique world, one with crystal-clear water and an alien marine status quo. Getting prepped for it requires loads and
loads of grueling training that goes way beyond a basic certification. If you want to have the best ice diving experience,
visit Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. 14.) Sandboarding Duh, you could always snowboard in Colorado,
but in Dubai, they’ve got something special. Believe it or not, you could actually sandboard
in Dubai. While it’s already a super hip destination
as it is, Dubai never fails to surprise — and this extreme sport is a perfect example of
the country’s unique hospitality. Take a stroll out into the desert on your
own 4×4 and try your hand at boarding down the gallant sand dunes. On top of that, you’ll never ever need to
rock any heavy winter clothes — you’ll be zooming down the dunes in your shorts. 13.) Sky Diving Letting yourself fall right out of a plane
is, without one doubt, the ultimate adrenaline rush. Find your location wisely, and get yourself
ready for the great jump. Along with that, it’s something that you
can just chill back and take in – you’ll be doing tandem leaps with an experienced
guide, so you can let them take over the terrifying parts. If that’s a little too extreme, then give
paragliding a shot. Again, you’ll be set up with an experienced
guide, so you won’t be left completely to your own common sense. You’ll be able to experience some pretty
sweet scenery, and if you’re courageous enough, you’ll be able to do all kinds of
tricks in mid-air. 12.) Paddleboarding If you’ve been following the adventures
of extreme sports athletes on the internet, then you will definitely, eventually come
to find that these athletes are die hard fans of paddleboarding. But unlike these athletes, you don’t have
to go all the way to the River Nile in order to give it a try! Although it may not be as dangerous as other
sports on this countdown, paddleboarding includes a variation of different choices to ride upon,
just like lakes, rivers, and even the sea. Depending on your requirements for your ideal
adrenaline rush, your setting will give you that much needed excitement. You can find paddleboarding schools across
the UK, from the LAKE DISTRICT to WALES. 11.) Scuba Diving Despite the fact that Some people might not
even consider scuba diving to be an extreme sport, just think about it, you’re literally
100+ feet underwater and the one redeeming factor keeping you breathing is that little
tank of oxygen that’s strapped onto your back. Not to mention all of the wonderful, creepy
creatures lurking around down below… At the end of the day, the experience is pretty
damn intense. 10.) Para-gliding Para gliders are comprised of free flying,
light glider aircraft that is blasted off by foot. The fabric has no actual structure to it and
it’s formulated by its lines of suspension. It’s flexible structure helps find the pressure
in the air and the wind creases, above the fabric lines and can last up to 1-2 hours
up in the air and the pilot could fall and dip in height depending on the exploitation
of the lift. Paragliding involves a little of technical
know-how’s on its launching and landing, with the under line guideline being, the wind
should inflate the fabric, for one to start flying. 9.) Wingsuiting If you are an avid Acrophobic, maybe you should
starting looking for another sport for the sake of a safer option. Wing suiting is a sport where you glide through
the air by the use a wingsuit. Wingsuits are referred to by its users as
various nicknames however the best one thus far is definitely “Wannabe batman” or
possibly even the “flying squirrel suits”. There have been extreme transformations in
the design that have helped the sports pull in popularity and push the limits. 8.) Quiddich No, this is not the exact same sport where
the players fly on brooms, and trick the keeper into thinking he has taken a sip of liquid
luck, and look for flying golden balls that can also be used to also store deathly hallows;
the science of muggling has not quite reached that level of intelligence yet. Luckily, there is a muggle surrogate for the
fictional wizardous sport: muggle quidditch. It was created back in 2005 at Middlebury
College in Vermont, the sport follows the same rules as the fictional version. 7.) Zip Lining Similar to Bungee jumping, Zip Lining appears
to be a relatively safe sport, however it is an extreme adventure sport solely because
the level of difficulty of zip-lining which goes up with the height of where you started. It includes a pulley suspended on a cable,
which is generally always made of stainless steel, mounted on a slope. Zip Lining is usually used when you want to
get to remote areas that simply just can’t be reached on foot. It grew into an adventure sport all thanks
to the difficulty level of it. The ropes are tied properly to let you go
glide from one place to another. Safety is of crucial consideration as always,
so you don’t ever have to worry about looking down. 6.) Swimming
Are doing the same old laps causing you insanity? Just take a moment to think outside the pool! Take the dive into any open-water event happening
near you or somewhere foreign to transform your vacation into a fitness takeover. In regards to the growing fame of triathlons,
swim events sizing from half a mile to 22 miles are popping up all over the map, including
New York City’s Hudson River, where you can row, row, row your arms about three-quarters
of a mile to the Statue of Liberty. 5.) Real Warrior Test Even though Spartan Race Hong Kong only occurs
two or three times a year at Kam Tin Country Park, it’s a sport that any extreme sports
fan simply can’t afford to miss out on. There’s a 13 kilometer run that includes
25 obstacles, such as rope climbs, carrying buckets of rocks up a mountain, crawling through
muddy water under barbed wire, and there’s even a javelin throw. This is more than only a simple race – it’s
actually considered a test of will that forces you to push your limit, from which you will
become a fitter, greater person. Expect to get wet, dirty and disgusting, like
a real Spartan warrior. 4.) Base Jumping This is thought of by many as the most dangerous
extreme sport in history. In this sport, you’ll not only have to be
brave but sharp and cautious as well. This is a skydiving sport, though unlike the
basic concept, in this scenario you have to jump from an arranged object. It is called “BASE” because of the first
initials of the main objects that you can jump off of: Building, Antenna, Span, and
Earth. 3.) Flyboarding One other original water sport that is turning
the heads of all of the citizens of Tanjung Benoa is Flyboarding. This extreme sport was first invented by Frank
Zatapa – the world jet ski athlete. Using a unique board that is fueled by extreme
amounts of water pressure, one of these days, you’ll be able to fly and hover above water. What’s even cooler is that the board is
attached to a jet ski that is built to portray its greatest maneuver moves. 2.) Cave Climbing
Say you’ve already experienced the sport of urban climbing and would love to try a
new kind of blood rush. If this is true, you should definitely try
your hand at cave climbing. In this sport, the athletes climb to the top
of jump right on down into the chimney of massive mountains, scaling the walls of ancient
abandoned caves that contain next to absolutely no lights. Not to mention all of the creepies and crawlies
lurking around down there in the empty abyss. That being said, wearing a headlight is definitely
a necessity. 1.) Parkour Parkour is, for the most part played out in
the cities where there is a bountiful amount of obstacles such as trees, walls, stair cases,
buildings roofs and more. The sport began in the beginning of the previous
century when a French naval officer named Georges Hébert started to train with the
latest category of exercise, a type that contained a solid purpose. He first got the idea from the the native
tribes in Africa. He observed how flexible, fit and enduring
their bodies were as the result of just basing their lives in great outdoors. That about wraps it up. While I hope you enjoyed the video, I am now
actually thinking hard about maybe giving skydiving a try, one of these days. While I plan all of that out, give us a thumbs
up and remember to subscribe for more awesome weekly content! I’m Lorenzo and see you next time on Insane
Curiosity!
