Strap on a Jetpack and a pair…

You know how the old witterings go, is it a bird? Is it a plane?… No it’s a dude with a jet pack on his back and a wet pocket full of dreams… in this case anyway. I’m taking time out of my busy day of harnessing goats to my skateboard to introduce you to...

Awesome Bikes & their Bitchin’ Riders

So I don’t pretend to be a bike expert, I rode a racing bike for years competing in triathons and my very first bike was a cool 80’s style BMX, man I miss that bike. But I know what I like and I like what I know – here is a collection of my favourite...
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...
The History of Extreme Sports.... so far

The History of Extreme Sports…. so far

  Extreme Sports. We all know the images and ideals that these two little words conjure up when put together. Adrenaline. No Fear. Human v Nature. Liklihood of severe injury – High. Yet for those of us who embrace extreme sports, these things are gagged, tied up and pushed into the dark recesses of our...

Parahawking with Birds of Prey

I know, I know, I’m quite possibly not the first person to have introduced you to Parahawking, as it has been around for a few years now. I’m just one of those people who’s always the last person to be told that morcel of  cool news. There’s nothing I can do about it. Blessed with...

127 Hours? If he’d had one of these kits it would’ve been more like 2

Aron Ralston, is the mountain climber who became trapped by a fallen boulder for 127 hours in Bluejohn Canyon, in Utah, USA. I’ve seen the film with James Franco playing Ralston and the story is incredible, if Aron had even endured half of what the film depicted and survived to tell the tale then he’s...
Wingsurfing – cowards need not apply

Wingsurfing – cowards need not apply

WINGSURFING. I have to thank Mike for thrusting this sport into my line of vision. (Mike @wingsurfer you know who you are!) It uses the power of the wind in a hand held wing, aka kitewing ( just like a hang-glider) to propel the rider of a dirtsurfer or mountainboard. Riders can speed along like...

I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK

Last weekend I spent my entire Saturday morning freezing in Kielder Forest, home of the British Red Squirrel and some kick-ass BMX fellows as well as stunning views and scenery but it’s Fing freezing at this time of year. The day was spent presenting some PTC’s as part of a big charity campaign surrounding the...
Black & Blue Butt Paintball Style

Black & Blue Butt Paintball Style

So, Saturday’s paintballing sesh was full on. We turned up at the paintballing venue, to find a gang of social misfits (70 or so) smoking reefers and fighting amongst themselves. I knew the day would be full of other-worldlyness when the dude in front of me  said “if you’s callin me a liar then say...
