    This is a video of the Seabreacher Sailfin, the largest Seabreacher submersible watercraft built to date (previously: the smaller dolphin model). It even has a water cannon in its nose and sky rocket launchers in its fin. What the hell is a sky rocket launcher? I don't know ... / Continue →

    This is a video of stunt biker Robbie Maddison riding a specially modified dirt bike to surf the waves of Teahupoo and Papara in Tahiti. Did the size of his balls scare all the sharks away? Probably. Also I'm pretty sure the COMBINING of extreme sports is going to be the FUT... / Continue →

    Quicksilver has designed a trio of wetsuits that look like actual suits. The suits come in office smart, business casual and tuxedo varieties, are made from 2mm Neoprene, include a quick-dry shirt and tie, and cost around $3,200. For reference, for $3,200 I'd rather be bare t... / Continue →

    This is a preview video of the the soon to be opened (and probably closed) SkyCaliber water slide at New Jersey's infamous Action Park, best known for its shoddy rides that have killed several people and injured countless others over the years. Obviously, I want to go very bad... / Continue →

    This is a video of big wave surf legend Laird Hamilton riding some waves on a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached, so it rises up out of the water when it gets up to speed. Personally, you'd never catch me in the ocean with ANYTHING strapped to my feet. That's like, a death s... / Continue →

    This is a video of extreme dumbass Harrison Williams, a 26-year old from Australia who decided to jump off a boat and surf on a dead whale carcass while tiger sharks and at least one great white feasted on its corpse. Why? Because apparently one of his friends "thought it'd b... / Continue →

    Just in time for fall comes this Star Wars Landspeeder pool float. As awesome as it is, it costs $200, which is entirely too expensive for something that's gonna get popped by a lightsaber when my friends and I are playing Jedi vs. Sith warriors in and around the pool. Also, ... / Continue →

    This is a first-person video of some guy jetskiing through a water-filled canyon on Lake Powell. It looks wild, especially since the water is so calm and its reflection so clear that it looks like the jetski is hovering. Me? I would have crashed into a wall and drowned on th... / 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 →

    This is the $30 giant cockroach pool float. It's a raft that looks like a giant cockroach. Speaking of, I saw a giant cockroach in the hallway yesterday and tried to kill it by by stepping on it. "Tried?" TRIED -- it didn't die. This wasn't on carpet either, this was hard ... / Continue →

    This is the Ultraskiff Angler 360. It's a little round boat with a rotating seat, allowing for 360-degrees of uninterrupted fishing/fun. It comes with standard boat things like storage compartments, rod holders, and BUOYANCY. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "We play bum... / Continue →

    This is the giant slip and slide launch ramp built at the Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp in Butler, Ohio. The ramp is usually used to practice ski jumping into the pool below but now they've added slip n' slides for people with less Olympic ambition. It looks like fun. Fun, ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a guy taking to the skies while riding a 'Raptor Blaster' (OMG I love blasting raptors!) kite tube being towed behind a Waverunner. That looks like fun. Except I want to be on like, 800-feet of tow-rope so I can REALLY soar. I want my head in the clo... / Continue →

    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    I posted the Flyboard back in 2011 when the company first came on the scene, but now they're back with a fancy commercial. This is that commercial. And it's set to one of the most questionable songs I've heard in recent history and that's saying a lot because my little sister... / Continue →

    Because everybody has to die somehow (so why not make it on your own terms?) this is a video of a bunch of hooligans using a bungee cord attached to a boat to pull them down a hill and over a ramp into a lake while riding an inner-tube. It actually looks pretty fun. Well, min... / Continue →

    Because this is the world we live in, Grant Engler and Amanda Volf got married over the weekend on a beach and left the ceremony with a pair of water jetpacks. Personally, I think Grant should have been carrying his new bride, but that's just me and I'm the most romantic man i... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to be pulled underwater behind a slow-moving boat? I know, it's pretty low on my bucket list too. There, but low. Enter the Subwing, the latest in extreme watersports technology that allows you to do barrel rolls and...that's pretty much it, all while holding you... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →
