The Most Shocking Extreme Sports Videos

Updated on March 15, 2012

There are quite a few extreme sports videos floating around the web at this time that will have your jaw dropped to the floor and keep you on the edge of your seats.

Why do these people put themselves at risk?

Who knows. They're adrenaline junkies.

The great part is that they've taken the time to capture videos of their sports for our enjoyment; some of them are so stressful to watch because of the danger that you can't help but look away.

In this hub, I'm going to share a few of the extreme sports videos that will get even your heart pounding and shocked by the risks of what these people do to get their kicks.

Extreme Mountain Biking

How about flying down the side of a mountain on a very small path covered in rocks and an inherent risk of flying off the edge?

Nope! Not for me but this video is certainly one to watch; it's incredible.

Wingsuit Flying

Skydiving? That's for chumps! How about flying in proximity of a mountain, just barely close enough not to crash into the side, hovering above the earth, flying!

Wingsuit diving is starting to become one of the biggest basejumping innovation since, well, basejumping. At the top of a mountain? Check. Jumping off? Check. Flying around in glorious HD. Worth watching.

Parkour and Free Running

Some people are running around trying to lose weight. These individuals are doing so to backflip off buildings, hang on the ledges of buildings, spin, twirl, and use the human body to overcome obstacles as if they were being chased by wolves.

Extreme Trampoline

Forget jumping on your trampoline in the backyard - take it indoors, add huge walls and multiple trampolines - along with some platforms - and you've got a recipe for some incredible stunts.

Which is your favorite extreme sport?
