I am an adventurous type of person. I always love to take new challenges. At a young age, golf is my favorite sport. Every weekend, I play with my parents, siblings, and close friends sometimes.
For many years of doing that, I feel a bit bored, though. I think it is normal. What I always do is find something more exciting and intense. Whenever I am bored, ice climbing, volcano boarding, crocodile bungee jumping, and heli-skiing are my go-to sports. They always give me an adrenaline rush.
What’s also your favorite sport? Do you come to the point where you feel tired of your hobby? Don’t be frustrated. It is time to take a break and try something different or extreme.
But what makes a sport adventurous and adrenaline-boosting? When I was starting, this is also my question. Here are what sets an extreme sport apart from the rest based on my experience:
Have you ever seen a car racing competition? The intensity of this type of game is up to the bar. But imagine if you are a car racer. The thrill is unexplainable, especially when you are on the lead, right? Unfortunately, activities that require high speed are not for those who have a weak heart. It takes a lot of courage, indeed.
Aside from the speed, the risk is another factor that makes any sports extreme. Who wants danger when playing a sport? Of course, a lot of people may not feel comfortable about it. But if you want some adventures and are experienced, there is nothing to be afraid of. For those who like a different level of excitement, a high-risk sport will be your best bet. But be sure you are skilled for your safety.
Some of the Extreme Sports You Cannot Afford to Ignore
Enough for dull and lazy days. It is perfect for trying some extreme sports that can add a little adrenaline to your everyday living. But what are the most extreme sports you should give a shot? Worry no more! Below, I have compiled a few sports that would level up your experience!
Have you ever seen someone walk on a thin line between two buildings or mountains? Not yet? Why don’t you experience it firsthand? It is not my thing, though. If you have a sack of courage, highlining is for you. For starters and even pros, wearing safety gear like a harness is advisable. Although you are good at balancing or have a great agility, I’d suggest you wear these protective gears.
Free Solo Climbing
Is highlining not suitable for you? Free solo climbing is another extreme alternative. Usually, solo climbers tackle challenging summits without the use of safety equipment. I encourage everyone to wear safety gear not unless they are ready to die. If you have a fear of heights, free solo climbing is not ideal for you. But if you have the guts, this extreme sport will never disappoint you. You will surely be mesmerized by the breathtaking views as you get higher. If you want a climbing companion, you can invite some of your friends, of course.
Big Wave Surfing
Besides golf, I really enjoy surfing since when I was in college, and I also recommend this sport to be athletic and confident people out there. But instead of small waves, give big ones a try and see the difference. You’d feel like you are only dreaming or like Aquaman. But to maintain that balance on a surfboard is not as easy as you imagine. With enough practice, there is nothing impossible. Where to catch monster waves, though? Well, there are multiple options to choose from, including San Clemente (California), Hanalei Bay (Hawaii), Waimea Bay, Trestles, Honolua Bay, Rincon (California), Jaws, Backdoor, Huntington Beach, and more.
It is fun to ride in a fast-moving small plane. But do not be contented with that! Take your hair-raising experience up a notch by walking or standing on the plane’s wing! Impossible as it may sound. But it has been a trend for many years now. So, are you brave enough? If yes, wing walking won’t be a disappointment.
What’s your choice? Whatever extreme sport you have in mind, you can expect an adrenaline-boosting experience at the end of the day.
