    This is a video of Nitro Circus's Ryan Williams successfully landing the world's first triple backflip on a scooter. Apparently he's attempted the trick at every Nitro Circus show for the last two years, and finally managed to stick the landing. It is hands down the most impr... / Continue →

    The Lily is a waterproof autonomous quadrocopter with a face that automatically follows you around by detecting a tracker worn on your body (previously: this one from 2014). It has a 20-minute battery life, shoots 1080p video at 60FPS, 720p slow motion at 120FPS, and has a var... / Continue →

    This is a video of BMX biker Pat Lauglin transferring from one bike to another after launching himself off a ramp. There are actually two videos after the jump -- one really short one of just the successful attempt, and a much longer one of all the failed attempts it took befo... / Continue →

    Note: Helmet cam footage from 0:58 - 1:06 may make you dizzy and puke. This is a video of Australian dirtbike rider Josh Sheehan performing the first successful triple backflip on a motorcycle. For reference, that is three backflips more than I feel comfortable doing on a mot... / Continue →

    Note: Video contains some solid bad words on account of things not going as expected. This is a spectacular 8.5-minute video compilation of things breaking (usually through attempted feats of jackassery), often resulting in people hurting themselves. There are so many good on... / Continue →

    This is a short video of some folks going off the Ski and Snowboard Bungee Ramp at the Tignes Ski Resort in France's Northern Alps. From what I could tell, the bungee cords actually slide on two cables parallel to the jump, so you continue bouncing further and further down the... / Continue →

    Because people are always inventing new and exciting ways to die, this is motorcyclist Julien Dupont riding his bike down the tracks (technically the walkway between the tracks) of the Montaña Rusa at the Feria de Chapultep amusement park in Mexico City. Unsurprisingly, Red Bu... / Continue →

    This is a video of a French base jumper being launched off a cliff in a giant slingshot, just like an Angry Bird. It looks like fun. I have never based jumped before. Or sky dived. Or bungie jumped. I have jumped into my pants with both legs at the same time though. I've ... / Continue →

    Cool, but I want to know more about your friend with the knight's helmet and moon boots on. This is a video of death wisher François Gissy breaking the world record for fastest speed you should definitely never travel on a bicycle, at 207MPH. For reference, that's about 190MP... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese thrill-seekers playing a game of Crocodile Dentist in which they've attached a bunch of razor blades to the top of the croc's mouth. Looks like fun. I'm kidding, it looks terrifying. I sliced my thumb open to the bone on a broken glass a coupl... / Continue →

    This is a video of bike pro Danny Macaskill (who has skill in his name so you know he's got them) riding the mountaintops of Isle of Skye in Scotland. It's a beautiful watch. Plus its set to this sweet ass song that sounds fresh off of a Pure Moods CD. I used to have the ori... / Continue →

    This is DevinSuperTramp's latest extreme sports video of barefoot water skiing behind an amphibious plane. Plus a couple of the guys actually do pushups ON THE WATER. I don't really want to get into the laws of physics involved with that, but I assume it breaks them. Have I ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Devin Supertramp and friends slip 'n sliding off a 50-foot cliff into Lake Powell. It looks like fun and now I want to do it with my friends. At least until somebody dies. "And then what?" Sink the body, delete all the footage, and make everybody in the p... / Continue →

    The AirDog is a GoPro toting quadrocopter drone that uses a body-mounted tracking device to follow you around and film whatever the hell you're doing. Which is probably some EXTREME SPORT. Or getting hit in the head with a quadrocopter. The drones are currently a Kickstarter... / Continue →

    This is a video of Craig Benzine involved in some "parkour for the common man." It's basically parkour without any impressive tricks or stunts (although I did find the "self-dodger" move at 1:20 pretty slick). So, what do you say -- meet at the middle school after work and do... / Continue →

    Remember XPogo's extreme pogo-sticking video from last year? Well now they're back with COOLIGANS, their latest balls-to-the-handlebar, penis-to-the-stick, head-to-the-pavement pogo video. It really is worth a watch if you get the chance, they get pretty nuts. They're doing ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Spider Man parkour-ing his arachnid face off all over town. He's jumping off buildings, climbing things, doing flips and barrel rolls -- you name it. "Does he hang upside-down and kiss Kirsten Dunst in the rain?" No. But there are plenty of slow-motion cr... / Continue →

    You can call me a sissy all you want, but I got sweaty palms watching this. Just keep in mind that if you do decide to call me a sissy I will punch you in the face. Because, while I'm genuinely terrified of falling 120-feet to my death on a bicycle, I am not afraid of some go... / Continue →

    My hands are sweaty right now. There is literally sweat dripping onto my keyboard. "You masturbating?" Not right now, no. I meant because I just watched this video. This is a compilation of some crazy Ruskie hanging off the top of things by his fingertips -- sometimes one-... / Continue →

    This is a video of Ethen Godfrey-Roberts performing 'the world's first' Superman double backflip. That shit looks intense (jk jk, it looks like its inasportsarena). I'm not saying I couldn't do it, I'm just saying I probably wouldn't do it in front of so many people. What if... / Continue →
