One defining characteristic of the extreme sports, adventure sports community is its ingenuity; it is forever coming up with new sports.
So what’s next on the list, what’s next year’s adventure sports darling or future Olympic hopeful?
Here’s a few sports that are appearing on our radar – some are genuine, others less so – let’s see how many you can add to the list.
Born after professional skiers Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend decided to ski on waves, instead of surfing them.
Taking the board back to the slopes, and why not? Using a longboard without its fins provides the most stable platform, which is great for beginners. And freestyle fans can take to the half-pipes, cutting back off the lip, just as they do when at sea.
A Bond-style battle between bat-suit wearing free fallers, the winner is established when both are on solid ground and splats are checked.
A coastal sport that combines the physical strength of the climber, with the suppleness and skill of the springboard diver. Points are awarded on technical difficulty, but multiplied by the height that each competitor free-climbed to.
So, wrack those brains. Which sports can we expect to see next?
