Lakey Peterson: Black + White

Lakey Peterson: Black + White

Who here among us doesn’t love the amazingly athletic World Surf League pro Lakey Peterson? You will adore her even more in Aaron Lieber’s black and white clip of her destroying the waves in Central America. She makes it look so easy you know, for a girl and all.

Red Bull District Ride 360

Red Bull District Ride 360

Drop right in the middle of the Red Bull District Ride urban MTB freeride through Nuremberg, courtesy of a 360º camera mounted atop one of its rider’s helmets. We suggest watching it a few times from different angles, like backwards, or looking down on the guy’s helmet.

Jason Paul Goes Back in Time

Jason Paul Goes Back in Time

Freerunner Jason Paul meets up with fellow parkour athletes Kenichi, Zen, Yakuwa, and Yuutarou in downtown Tokyo, then lands at Edo Wonderland – a picture-perfect theme park that replicates life in the 17th century Edo era, samurais, ninjas and all. BTS footage here.

Real Skifi Summer

Real Skifi Summer

Finland-based ski crew Real Skifi is used to having snow all the way into May, but even that far North there are summer days without powder. That didn’t stop the gang from taking to the streets and countryside with their skis and cranking out some sick tricks.

Paraglider Speed Flying

Paraglider Speed Flying

Daredevil and adventure seeker Joseph Innes shares video footage of several death-defying paraglider runs as he skims precariously close to rocks, trees, and the ground as he heads down the side of a mountain at insane speeds.

50 MPH Drift Trikes

50 MPH Drift Trikes

DevinSupertramp captured this awesome footage of the Rad Cows as they show off their homebuilt drift trikes, which they ride downhill at speeds up to 50 mph – without brakes. It’s also an amazing promo for Samsung, since the video was shot entirely on a Galaxy S8.

Canadian Ninja Warrior

Canadian Ninja Warrior

36-year-old Arrow star Stephen Amell joined the celebrity edition of American Ninja Warriors for Red Nose Day and breezed through the obstacle course. We want to see Jackie Chan fall and stumble his way through. While fighting 55 bad guys using a broom and a pail.

Daymak C5 Blast Go-kart

Daymak C5 Blast Go-kart

Daymak’s electric go-kart is so fast and expensive you’d be afraid to strap in. The C5 Blast’s standard version goes from 0 to 60mph in 3.9s, while the Ultimate does the same in an insane 1.5s, thanks to 12 ducted fans that offset the vehicle’s weight.

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

It takes a minute to get to the action in this clip of rollerblader Grigoriy Usenko tearing up some MTB slopestyle ramps in the woods outside of Krasnodar, Russia. But you’ll want to watch those first 60 seconds too, packed with cool motion time-lapse footage of the nearby city.

Climbing without Limbs

Climbing without Limbs

If you’re looking for a source of inspiration, look no further than Kyle Maynard, a man who not only has climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Aconcagua, but did it as a quadruple-amputee, and without the use of prosthetics. Wow. Just wow.

Extreme Sandbox

Extreme Sandbox

Forget simulators. Located in Pottsboro, TX and Hastings, MN, Extreme Sandbox will teach you how to operate heavy equipment – a bulldozer, a wheel loader, an excavator, or a fire truck – and have fun with them through various challenges.

The Punching Bag Workout

The Punching Bag Workout

(PG-13: Language) YouTuber The ANF Action Figure wants to motivate you to start hitting the gym. But he ended up scaring us with his extreme methods. Watch him no-hand squat 405 lb while his friends do 10-string combos on his unreal abs.

Line-X: Indestructible Coating

Line-X: Indestructible Coating

You might have seen How Ridiculous’ videos where they tortured a watermelon, an egg, and more that have been coated with Line-X. Veritasium met with the company behind the protective coating to find out how it works.

Alpha Jetman

Alpha Jetman

For his latest formation flight, original Jetman Yves Rossy and his two padawans flew alongside the French Air Force’s aerobatic team Patrouille Acrobatique de France. Definitely one of the sickest things we’ve seen this year.

Jessie Graff: Ninja Warrior 2

Jessie Graff: Ninja Warrior 2

After becoming the first woman to beat American Ninja Warrior‘s Los Angeles qualifier, stuntwoman Jessie Graff made history once again as the first female contestant to complete the first stage of the National finals. Mirror here.

H1 Unlimited Hydroplane Racing

H1 Unlimited Hydroplane Racing

A POV look at this insanely fast watersport, in which 3000hp turbine-powered boats can hit 200mph. It’s like driving a top-fuel dragster across the water, except there’s no parachute, and you don’t just go in a straight line. Oh, and here’s what happens when you flip.

Nitro World Games: Winning Runs

Nitro World Games: Winning Runs

An offshoot of Nitro Circus, Nitro World Games is all about pulling off the most amazing vert tricks on inline skates, skateboards, scooters, BMX and motorcycles. Highlights include a BMX 1080º front flip and an FMX double front flip. Full show here.

Human Slingshot BASE Jump

Human Slingshot BASE Jump

BASE jumpers are always looking for new places to jump from, but in the case of Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Poucher, they took to the air via a giant catapult, which exerted more than 6Gs on their bodies as they were flung sky high at speeds up to 125 mph.

World Record Deadlift

World Record Deadlift

Strongman Eddie “The Beast” Hall set a new – and possibly permanent – world record for deadlifting when he held up 500kg (1100lb) at the World Deadlift Championship 2016. He passed out and suffered a few ruptured vessels after the feat, but is otherwise fine.

Jessie Graff: Ninja Warrior

Jessie Graff: Ninja Warrior

Stuntwoman Jessie Graff became the first woman to complete American Ninja Warrior‘s new Los Angeles qualifier course, including the 14.5ft warped wall. She was cool, calm and collected the whole way. It’s only appropriate that she dressed as Wonder Woman.

Spitting Distance 360º

Spitting Distance 360º

Red Bull followed photographer Ulla Lohmann, her husband Sebastian and a small film crew as they descended as near as possible to one of the lava craters in Vanuatu’s Ambrym, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Full episode here.

Rope Swing Dunks

Rope Swing Dunks

The Dunking Devils added an extreme twist to their freestyle basketball routine. They hung a basketball hoop under a railway bridge that’s suspended 32ft over the water, then used rope swings to pull off their slams and jams.

Ski Man

Ski Man

From the “because it could be done” file: Jean Yves Blondeau’s rather silly looking ski suit allows him to ski using not just his feet, but also with his hands, chest or back. While it looks insane at times, it’s also a great way to make your falls look intentional.

Raw and Outta Bounds

Raw and Outta Bounds

MTB Dose presents pro mountain biker Bryn Atkinson ripping through a trail in Cairns, Australia. No music or sound effects, just insects calling to each other, the wind caressing leaves and rubber shredding soil. It’s probably the most exciting ASMR video you’ll ever see.

One of Those Days 3

One of Those Days 3

Yep, that’s the point of view of a man who’s somersaulting over a spinning helicopter blade. Carefree skiier Candide Thovex upped the ante for his third One of Those Days video. There’s a fair amount of editing magic here, but it’s no less amazing for that.

Climbing the Marina 101

Climbing the Marina 101

The trespassing climber James Kingston shares his recent ascent of Dubai’s Marina 101, which at 1,394ft is the world’s tallest residential building. We can’t decide who’s more insane: James, or the crane worker who gave James the permission to die on his watch.
