    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 →

    This is a video of Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham demonstrating his extreme wheelchairing skills. He does all kinds of stuff: wheelies, backflips, handplants, rail-grinds, you name it. "Shot out of a cannon?" I don't think that's a wheelchair trick. Still, you point me to a ca... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW for reasons of BUTT NAKEDNESS (which, coincidentally, is my favorite reason for NSFWness). This is a segment from Sweetgrass Production's video Valhalla. This particular segment features nothing but naked skiers and snowboarders (both men and women) nake... / Continue →

    In honor of Electronic Arts' announcement of a second Mirror's Edge video game, parkour and freerunning production house(?) Ampisound made this first-person Mirror's Edge themed run along the roofs of a bunch of buildings. It was scary. When it comes to parkour, this is reall... / Continue →

    This is a video of parkour pro James Kingston leaping from rooftop to rooftop and performing a bunch of other death-defying feats of running and jumping around Cambridge, UK. I got a little sweaty watching it, and not just because it's hot as hell here and my A/C stopped worki... / Continue →

    This is a video of some yokel laying face down between the train tracks while a train passes over him (previously: this crazy Ruski). If this is what you find yourself doing for fun, congratulations, it's time to leave a note for your ma and pa, steal the family car, and not s... / Continue →

    I'm flying, Jack! This is an ad for GoPro featuring some guy riding a snowmobile off the edge of a cliff, sitting on it for awhile while airborne, then ditching it to crash below while he parachutes off to safety. I found it a pretty controversial ad because like, GoPro kille... / Continue →

    This is a video of BASE jumper/wingsuit enthusiast/potential extreme sport accident victim Alexander Polli flying through a tiny stone archway in Montserrat, Spain. They're saying the arch is only six-feet wide, but it looks a little wider than that to me. Granted not wide en... / Continue →

    This is a video of two dudes with nothing left to lose (I'm getting there myself) wingsuit flying between two buildings in Rio De Janerio. Not gonna lie, if I'd been in one of those buildings when they zipped by I probably would have screamed. Something like, "Holy shit, how ... / Continue →

    Because scooters and pogo-sticks are both cool, but not like super cool, somebody combined the two into the JumpX, a poorly named (come on -- PoGooter) pogo-stick/scooter hybrid. Does it do tricks? You bet your sweet padded ass it does tricks! You get good at this thing and ... / Continue →

    So ex-green Power Ranger Jason David Frank (who is now a mixed martial artist who will punch your teeth out if you cross him) just set the world record for the most pine boards broken while skydiving, raising the bar from five to seven. Zordon must be so proud right now. Hi... / Continue →

    Listen: you just have to watch his thing to believe it. It starts off kind of slow though, so skip to around 1:08 for it to really get going. They do all sorts of crazy tricks like flips, rail-slides, swinging the pogo stick around over their heads mid-jump -- all kinds of cr... / Continue →

    Parasailing snowmobiling today, paraplegic snowmobiling tomorrow. This is a video of a guy who attached a parasail to his snowmobile so he can take off and fly for short periods of time. That's just a solid idea if you ask me. Also: para-snorkling. Think about it -- just ... / Continue →
