Quick-Fire Interview with…

Andy Milenkovic, 20, is a mountainborder living just outside Berwick, South East Melbourne. He recently became the first mountainboarder in the world to land and ride away from a double backflip. He also does it padless, because he’s a beast. Where are you whilst answering these questions and what are you doing there? At home...
Extreme Pogo - Hell No...

Extreme Pogo – Hell No…

I saw ‘Extreme Pogo’ in the subject line of an email in my inbox the other day and involuntarily gurned. I get emails all the time from people telling me how ‘extreme’ their hobby is. Jesus Christ. For those of you wondering whether to write about ‘extreme waving’, ‘extreme slingshoting’, or ‘extreme inward singing’ (Only...

L.A XGames 2012

I’m in California, a stone’s throw from Los Angeles and in homage to the City of Angels and to all of my extreme U.S pals online, I thought it would be cool to delve a little deeper into what the 2012 L.A XGames has in store. Between 28th June and 1st July 2012, the Games...

Felix Baumgartner & Red Bull Stratos

Skydiver Felix Baumgartner and his team of aviation engineers have been planning a 36km record bid for a while, over 5 years in fact. The infamous Austrian adventurer announced earlier this year that a date in early October (we now know to be today!) would be the optimum time to jump from 120,000 feet up....

Quick-Fire Interview with…

Slacklining is a new lifestyle sport hitting the UK. It isn’t particularly well known over here yet (originating from across the pond) it’s a small community of dedicated UK slackliners who are constantly searching for the perfect line location. Slacklining had a central moment in Madonna’s spectacular Super Bowl 2012 Halftime Show, to a worldwide...
Australia's Slot Canyons

Australia’s Slot Canyons

So picking up this month’s copy of National Geographic and flicking through whilst smoking my Sunday morning clay pipe and in full boudoir regalia, I came across an amazing article about canyoning. It’s pretty incredible how people purposefully launch themselves into canyons, with no real idea of how they’re going to get out and simply...

Over the years various skateboards have tried to capture that feeling of being on a wave. The Hamboard story revolves around the Hamborg family, 7 surfers from Huntington Beach, California.  Over the years of living close to the beach 5 brothers grew to love the ocean and became lifeguards.  They tried all sorts of outdoor...

The Rookies from Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series

Steven LoBue, Jorge Ferzuli and Sacha Kutsenko discuss their debut season in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Speedflying

Speedflying

Make sure you’re in a room on your own to read this. Your girlfriend/boyfriend/mother/boss would not approve. Speedflying is one of the most dangerous extreme sports in the world, it’s unlikely to please your holiday insurance company either, but even they would have to admit that it looks cool, it looks 100% controllable and totally...

Extreme Sports Festivals 2011

If like me, you’ve been busy beavering away at work, school, or just being plain awesome then it may have escaped your notice that there are some movers and shakers out there paving the way for extreme sports fans to get plugged into the extreme sports matrix. They want you to have the time of...
Could you be a film stunt professional?

Could you be a film stunt professional?

I had an action-movie-marathon the other day and an idea suddenly popped into my head. ‘How does someone become a stuntperson?’ Not that I know a hell of a lot about it, but I think I’m right in saying that it’s quite a closed community of professionals, who travel around from film to film, doing...
