From para-skiing to cliff-diving to rooftop parkour runs, there are lots of ways for athletes to get their thrills. Storyful compiled this 15-minute video featuring a dozen daredevil activities from the awe-inspiring to the downright foolhardy. Unless you count dizziness, the jumbo hula hoop at the end is clearly the tamest.
THE BEST Daredevils
Riding a skateboard downhill can be a thrill – at least until you have to stop. Now imagine bombing down a mountain road at speeds faster than cars take the same path. That’s exactly what boarder Josh Neuman did down one of Switzerland’s most epic driving roads. Bonus points for cameraman @jake_from_skatefarm.
Daredevil flyer Jeb Corliss pays tribute to base jumper Uli Emanuele by attempting to fly some of the incredibly magnificent and dangerous flight paths his late friend was famous for. A truly immersive 360º experience you’ll want to watch in fullscreen or on a VR headset.
Daredevil Antony Britton set the Guinness World Record for longest distance full body burn w/o oxygen, running 670 feet before the Stannage International Stunt Team put him out. He also ran the fastest 100m fire sprint, which is something most of us would do if set ablaze.
