This KLM jumbo jet had to contend with strong crosswinds while landing at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. It looks funny now, like a gigantic drunk bird, but we bet the passengers and flight crew had a different opinion.
We’ve seen Megavalanche from the front of the pack. Here’s what’s it like at the thick of it courtesy of UR Team rider Jamie Nicoll at this year’s contest. Why are you guys doing this?! Why don’t you just walk and enjoy the scenery?
Tom Cruise may not be as crazy as Jackie Chan, but he’s awfully close. He didn’t have a double for his airplane stunt in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which took them eight takes to get right. It should be named MI: Balls of Steel.
We’ve seen wingsuit flights through narrowgaps, but none narrower than this one. Uli Emanuele successfully zipped through a hole that’s just over 6ft. wide between two rock formations. Even fellow BASE jumpers knew it was madness.
Watch extreme athlete Roberta Mancino and her BASE jumping buddies pull off awesome feats from the top of the 1360ft. tall Princess Tower in Dubai. Her aerial front flip was executed and shot brilliantly.
On 6/6/15, Yeo Kim Yeong set a new Guinness World Record for most pull-ups in a minute. Guinness counted 44 valid ones in Yeo’s attempt, topping the previous record by 2. And our lifetime record by 40.
During a recent Nitro Circus event, performer R Willy pulled off an astounding feat – the world’s first triple backflip on a scooter. Apparently, he’s been attempting this at every show for two years straight, so persistence pays off.
XDubai confirms its teaser: we now have multiple Jetmen. Watch the original Jetman Yves Rossy flying over Dubai with his protégé, skydiving and BASE jumping expert Vincent Reffet. We can’t wait to see their next film.
Wingsuit flyer Sebastian Alvarez just gets more and more daring. His latest stunt had him smashing head first into what appears to be a small styrofoam board, which was held aloft by two of his bravest buddies on top of a mountain.
Rope jumping is like rope swinging on steroids. You freefall most of the way down before the safety rope catches you. Here’s team Dream Walker showing off this insane sport from a 660ft. cliff overlooking Navagio Beach in Greece.
Candide Thovex skis and somersaults his way down the slopes of Val Blanc, France in one of the best first-person videos we’ve ever seen. You don’t need music or flashy editing when you have someone this skilled at work.
Football fans will remember this year’s Cotton Bowl for its unlikely ending. But the rest of the world will know that game as the one where they saw a man’s soul leave his body. We sincerely hope Baylor kicker Chris Callahan is okay.
Yeah, there’s a guy in there somewhere. Surftotal shares this video of boulder-balled pros riding monstrous waves off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. It’s the same area that brought the record-breaking 90ft. wave.
Rubik’s Cube world record holder Feliks Zemdegs’ jaw-dropping feat filmed from his perspective. Watch as he solves the cube twice, with the second one at a mind-blowing 4.21s, including the time it took to stop the timer.
(NSFW: Language) Rockstar drink and Nitro Circus’ Erik Roner used 90 balloons, 50 helium tanks and a lawn chair to create a poor man’s version of the Up house. Erik went up to 8,000ft. before parachuting back down.

This clip from the skiing documentary Days of My Youth shows Cody Townsend going through a narrow and nearly vertical tunnel at the Tordrillo Mountains in Alaska. Powder Awards awarded him the Best Line of the year for his stunt.
Wingsuit expert Darren Burke takes us on a smooth, yet thrilling flight as he comes perilously close to the ground and treetops beneath him. We’d love to see this first hand, but don’t possess the balls to do it.
Gugulotu Lachiram found a way to turn a meditative practice into a pulse-pounding activity. The 40-year old farmer is famous in his hometown for practicing yoga while going up to 37mph on his motorcycle.
Daredevil Flaviu Cernescu had the balls to do a free solo climb to the top of Romania’s second-tallest structure, an old chimney at CET Pitesti SUD, measuring over 918 feet in height. We got out of breath just watching this.
We’ve had the pleasure of paragliding, but it was nothing like the aerobatics and perilously close ground sweeps wingmaster Valentin Delluc does. The part where he flips over is just plain madness. His flying cameraman is no slouch either.
The extreme adrenaline junkies of Flying Frenchies built themselves a human catapult rig which they use to launch themselves off of a cliff to give their BASE jumps a little added momentum at the start.
Paraglider Arnauld Longobardi takes us on a breakneck flight through the French Alps, skimming treetops, pulling dizzying spins and elegant water flares, and culminating in a stunt where he zooms just inches from a cablecar.
