When you think of sports what do you think of? Maybe you think of football, soccer, basketball or baseball. Well, in the world of sports there is much more than just the classic sports you always hear about.
I have made a list of 3 extreme sports that will be sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Extreme sports, un-like other sports, are always exciting and are usually somewhat dangerous. The danger is the reason they are so exciting and why they are so extreme.
Let's take a look at these sports and who knows, maybe you'll find one your interested in and take on a whole new lifestyle.
1. The first sport on our list is motocross. I am sure you know what this is but incase you do not, it's when a lot of people race dirt bikes around a man-made track with jumps, whoops, berms and many more features. This is extremely fast paced and exciting to watch.
What is even more exciting is actually participating in the sport. It is a little expensive to start but it is an investment that keeps on giving. Just be sure that you get the proper protective gear because it is a dangerous sport. If you have a chance be sure to go watch a professional race as the professionals ride faster than you could believe.
2. Now let's check out freestyle motocross. This is where riding dirt bikes really takes insane. This is where people will do tricks on their dirt bikes.
Freestyle motocross is probably most known because of the freestyle competitions held at the X-Games every year. Riders will take their bikes off of 70 foot jumps doing backflips, grabs, different body movements and pretty much every trick you can possibly imagine. It really is spectacular.
Keep in mind that performing tricks on a dirt bike is extremely difficult and you should always try tricks into a foam pit before taking them to the dirt.
3. The last sport on our list is cliff jumping. This is something everyone can do but is still exhilarating and very extreme.
Cliff jumping is where you find a cliff or ledge that towers above a body of water and jump from it into the water. This is something that everyone should try at least once.
If you ask around I am sure someone you know will tell you that a place that you can do this safely.
A few things to keep in mind are to not jump off of anything too tall (15-35 feet is ideal), always check to make sure the water is deep enough so you do not hit the ground and make sure you jump out far enough to land in the deep water.
