Fearsome Sports

Bungee Jumping is a perfect ride for thrill Seekers. It can be done alone or with a partner. It's a lot safer than it used to be. Nowadays they have very high quality safety harnesses that really help protect you.

Rock Climbing is an extreme sport to say the least. Safety gear is very important because if you fall without protection then it's likely going to be fatal.

Skydiving will cure your fear of heights. Always have two parachutes. One extra just in case for a back up. Safety is the number one priority so check all safety gear before attempting to jump.

Paragliding is a great way to feel like a bird with wings. Soaring high in the sky is a thrill of sorts but being able to control your movements makes this activity truly special indeed.

A Few Extreme Sports

This list in know way represents all extreme sports. This list is composed of the most popular of these high octane, thrill a minute sports. Having said that, here is the TOP 10.

1. Bungee Jumping: If you have a fear of heights this activity probably isn't the best thing for you to try out. It is done over the water or sometimes over a safety net or inflatable ball. Now they have two seater bungee jumps and bungee jumping where the rider hangs from his feet. I have done the traditional Bunjee and it was exciting especially the initial drop.

2. Hang Gliding: This looks fun and peaceful. I would need to somehow feel "safe". I think that, that might be an impossible task. A true extreme sport that requires all safety measures be followed including watching the weather forecast closely. It is however, entertaining to watch on television or youtube. It is on my bucket list and eventually I plan on trying this high flying hobby.

3. Motocross: Motocross racing is dangerous because you can wreck your motorcycle while racing and jumping over the hills. You don't want any broken bones so it's best to gain experience before trying to emulate the professionals. These guys practice for years in order to get to the top level.

4. Paragliding: Paragliding is a thrill a minute sport in which you fly like a bird through the sky with wings that you adjust by moving your arms. Always wear your safety glasses while operating this bird of the air. Practice may make perfect but always check wind conditions before attempting this ride.

5. Skydiving: I have contemplated doing this. Crazy right? Yes. There's a skydiving facility in Cullman, Al. I bet it's exhilarating. At any rate the experienced divers do all sorts of flips and spins in mid air. Some states have annual shows with skydivers performing.

6. Surfing: A person stands on a board and catches the wave and rides it to the shore while performing tricks. Surfing takes many years of practice in order to master. A good surfer knows to keep up with the tides and the weather before hitting the waves. I have never surfed but I have used a body board to ride waves and it is breathtaking.

7. Snowmobile: This looks like a lot of fun. I guess it's the equivalent of riding a four wheeler but, this is done in the cold and in the snow. Always wear a helmet when riding one of these vehicles. During races snowmobiles go around sharp curves and deep hills.

8. Rock Climbing: Even though you have a safety harness, Rock climbing is still a dangerous adventure. You must concentrate and be strategical or you will slip and fall. Always use all your tools that is at your disposal if you want to be a successful rock climber. I have and never will try rock climbing.

9. Skateboarding: Skateboarding is fun to watch but when high flying stunts are being performed serious injuries can and sometimes do occur. Always wear a helmet, gloves and knee and elbow pads when performing high octane stunts. When I was a teenager I Skateboarded with friends but never got anywhere with it.

10. Mountain Biking: This sport takes high endurance as well as fearlessness to succeed. When a bike is going high speeds around a mountain anything can happen. Safety should be a top priority when riding bikes at high speeds. Always scout the locale before taking the bike out and be prepared physically and mentally for dangerous courses.

Safety is Important

Whenever performing dangerous activities always be well prepared and well protected. Always use everything allowable for protection such as helmets and seat belts.
