From "hotheaded" to suicidal, there is only one step... And this step, some have already crossed it! These sportsmen and women are obviously very heart-felt. And don't talk to them about "fear" because it's a concept that is foreign to them! If you think you have already tried every possible and imaginable extreme sport, you are wrong. In search of adrenaline renewal, these 25 extreme sports are going to interest you a lot! (we would like to take all the responsibility for this, just in case). 

Apnea No Limit

Because of its dangerousness, the sport is not recognized by the Apnea Federation. The goal of this sport is to descend as deep as possible under the surface of the water, while abstaining from breathing.

The Highline

For those who don't know, the Highline is simply funambulism like in the circus, but in an extreme version, above the emptiness and immensity of Nature. Better not be afraid of heights!

The Cheese Rolling Race (England)

This is a sport that is likely to please the French! In England, some gourmets had the idea of creating cheese races. The principle: from the top of a hill, a large cheese with a circular shape is let slide down, and all the participants must try to catch it. As a result, everyone runs down the hill with great strides in order to acquire the famous Grail. Whoever succeeds wins the cheese.

The Tank-Biathlon (Russia)

Tank races are similar to car races; with one difference: they are done with tanks. The sport, practiced in competition, is divided into four events: the 20 kilometers, the sprint, the pursuit, and finally, the final relay between the four highest ranked teams. Not sure that the discipline is accessible to everyone... But you get adrenaline just by thinking about it.

Swimming with dolphins is obsolete. The fashion now is to swim with sharks. We just hope that you have not been traumatized by "Jaws".

The Rodeo

Born at the end of the 19th century, under the impulse of the Cowboys wanting to round out their end of the month, the Rodeo is one of the oldest sports on our list. It can be practiced on horseback or, even more unusual, on the back of a bull. Not very nice for our animal friends! From you to us: we secretly hope that this sport will soon become extinct...

BASE jumping

In 1978, Carl Boenish created the Base Jump. The sport consists in jumping from buildings, antennas, bridges, or even from the top of the earth. The height varies from 50 to 1500 meters; the interest of this sport is to deploy your parachute as late as possible... It's a bit stupid, you'll tell us! We did not think less of it.

Stock car racing

Only in the United States, a country of all extremes, could such a discipline be born! The Stock Car brings together, on an oval circuit, about forty big cars. For four hours, these cars compete against each other at the tail end, with accelerations (which can reach up to 320 km/h) and very tight corners. This extreme sport has its origins in the history of the Mafia: at the time, gangsters modified old cars to make them more powerful. Gradually, they started to make clandestine competitions between them in order to have fun. The discipline was finally legalized and today, it is in the respect of the law that one can go and admire these extreme races.

Wingsuit flying

The wingsuiting is a subtle mix of skydiving and Base Jump - something to impress us. Equipped with a wingsuit - quite funny to see, aesthetically speaking - the practitioners throw themselves above the void in order to fly. But a very important distinction: the goal is to stick as close as possible to the ground surface. Beware not to eat the dust!

Bungee jumping

The discipline finds its origins in France, in the 90s. David Belle, from the southern suburbs of Paris, is the one who invented Parkour; this aerial way of getting around by easily overcoming all urban obstacles.

Climbing on monuments and/or skyscrapers

Well, we don't draw you a picture, the practice of this sport is illegal. However, James Kingston does not seem to worry about the legality of these acts! Indeed, in 2015, he managed the feat of climbing the Eiffel Tower. But this exploit is not his last since the one nicknamed the "spider man" travels the World climbing monuments and skyscrapers. And on top of that, the man has the nerve to always film everything. No, but we think we are dreaming.

Kayaking on raging waters

Kayaking is one of the quietest sports... at least, when you stay on calm waters. We challenge everyone to kayak on raging waters, or even going down waterfalls! Rafa Ortiz, a Redbull athlete, rubbed shoulders with it some time ago.

Lapining

Those who love speed and running should listen carefully. Lapining, the opposite of mountaineering, consists in hurtling down summits, hills, and mountains of all kinds on foot and at full speed. So it's better to be skillful to practice it because if you slide, you end the course in a roll-ups.

Rafting

Rafting is the practice of speeding down fast and choppy rivers in an inflatable raft. Considered an "Extreme Sport" by our companies, Rafting is the "Petit Poucet" among all the sports we have presented. Nevertheless, it is no less dangerous.

Freeride Skiing

Freeride skiing is the No Limit (or almost) version of traditional skiing. Roughly speaking, the skier evolves in a slope that is not defined by a color (blue, green, and all the rest) and is not supervised by qualified personnel: in short, he evolves off-piste. But beware, some rules still remain to be followed for the confirmed skier in order to minimize the risk to his or her life as much as possible.

The Barefoot

Practical when you have forgotten your skis... Indeed, the Barefoot is the lighter version of water skiing. The athlete skis with his bare feet, with the possibility to do it with his head upside down and his feet hanging where you usually put your hands. The speed can reach up to 75 km/h!
