Taking a Risk

From para-skiing to cliff-diving to rooftop parkour runs, there are lots of ways for athletes to get their thrills.

70 mph Downhill Skateboarding

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.

Longest Body Burn

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.
