Insane Jumbo Jet Landing

Insane Jumbo Jet Landing

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.

Megavalanche 2015 POV

Megavalanche 2015 POV

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’s MI: Rogue Nation Stunt

Tom Cruise’s MI: Rogue Nation Stunt

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.

Wingsuit Through Hole

Wingsuit Through Hole

We’ve seen wingsuit flights through narrow gaps, 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.

Princess Tower BASE Jumps

Princess Tower BASE Jumps

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.

44 Pull-ups in 1 Minute

44 Pull-ups in 1 Minute

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.

Triple Scooter Backflip

Triple Scooter Backflip

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.

Jetman Dubai: Young Feathers

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 Battering Ram

Wingsuit Battering Ram

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 over Navagio Beach

Rope Jumping over Navagio Beach

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.

One of Those Days 2

One of Those Days 2

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.

Kicker KO

Kicker KO

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.

Nazaré Big Wave Surfing

Nazaré Big Wave Surfing

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.

Solving a Rubik’s Cube in 4.2s

Solving a Rubik’s Cube in 4.2s

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.

Lifted

Lifted

(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.

Jetman Aerobatic Formation

Jetman Aerobatic Formation

Real life Rocketeer Yves Rossy danced in the skies of Dubai with aerobatics champion Veres Zoltán. The surprise at the end and XDubai’s tease that “the best is yet to come” makes us hopeful that there will be more videos.

Insane Ski Line

Insane Ski Line

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.

Bonzai Wingsuit POV Flight

Bonzai Wingsuit POV Flight

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.

Motorbike Yoga

Motorbike Yoga

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.

Crazy Chimney Climb

Crazy Chimney Climb

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.

2014 Clean & Jerk World Record

2014 Clean & Jerk World Record

Pro lifter Ilya Ilyin set a new clean & jerk world record for the 105kg (230lb.) division at the 2014 IWF World Championships. Ilya’s opponents set world records themselves before he set the highest bar at an insane 242kg (533.5lb.).

Play with the Ground

Play with the Ground

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.

Catapult BASE Jumping

Catapult BASE Jumping

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.

New Skydiving World Record

New Skydiving World Record
