I saw this on the interwebs yesterday but I didn’t have the time to throw it up on the site. Nevertheless, check out these dudes participating in this EXTREME sport on the fly…or on the rails as it were. Some people call it “Train Surfing”.
It’s sorta like surfing…and skateboarding, which is sorta like surfing on land…and parkour which is sorta like skateboarding without a board, except that is is just on a train. Guys do little acrobatic things and tap signs while the train speeds along merrily down the track.
Mix one part boredom and one part crazy and apparently you get this. It seems to have been around for awhile, but hey, its new to the Deuce and that makes it a new sport ’round these parts.
Strangely enough, that title is actually pretty apt for what you are about to see below. Just watch all the limbs snapping like branches on the tree. You really would have to believe in a higher power if you actually think you can survive this madness unscathed.
Your chance to catch a glimpse at the future of the X Games after enough spinal injuries happen. ITS EXTREME WHEELCHAIR! Actually, if its the X Games, they’d probably name it like X-WHEELIE STREET VERT or something impossibly stupid like that. Nevertheless, flipping that heavy ass chair around twice is pretty impressive. Also impressive, this has never been done before. Watch Aaron Fotheringham flip it.
The snowboarder in the below video is one lucky guy. He decided to put a helmet cam on before his big run on Slovakia’s High Tatra mountains and good thing he did because he captured himself getting swallowed up and dragged along by an avalanche. Its awesome to watch and its made even better because the dude actually is quite fine after it all. No random horrific violence at all, how about that? Not that he doesn’t come close to having this classified as a horrific violence video, check out how close he comes to biting it big time when he almost gets smashed up against a bunch of jagged rocks. Insane footage.
Note…that is just a picture of a guy with snow on him, not actually the guy in the video.
