If you ever wonder what it feels like to fly, this video makes it easier; Mount Superior in Utah is the spectacular setting for an inspired run down the mountain on skis – with parachutes attached.

Broadsword Cam

Broadsword Cam

Some guys hanging out at Swordfish 2010 decided to duct tape their GoPro Hero camera to the tip of a broadsword, and started swinging. The results turned out to be quite cool – if not a little dizzying.

When we saw this video of strongman Benedikt Magnússon lifting an astounding 1100 pounds, all we could think of was that old Hans and Franz sketch bit where Phil Hartman rips his arms off.

The Triple Cork

We all know the sick moves that Norwegian pro boarder Torstein Horgmo can execute on tour, but after seeing what he does in the off season, we’re looking forward to his 2011 tricks. (Thanks Colin!)

Oh, the Frenchman!

Oh, the Frenchman!

This skier was speeding down a slope when he came across a marker, hitting him where it hurts most. But that’s not funny enough for the Internet. Fortunately the commentator stepped up.

AZO Showreel 2010

AZO Showreel 2010

Aung Zaw Oo is an animator for Monday Night Combat. But his day job didn’t prevent him from releasing another showcase of his agility and reflexes, including the best way to put shorts on.

Rope Swing Quadruple Flip

Rope Swing Quadruple Flip

We though Mike Wilson’s triple flip was pretty impressive, so we’re not quite sure how to describe his quadruple flip into the icy depths of Lake Tahoe. Dare we say it’s awesome? (Thanks Corey!)

Danny MacAskill S1Jobs Ad

Danny MacAskill S1Jobs Ad

The talented Danny MacAskill lends his street trials skills to make a commercial for Scottish recruitment site s1jobs. We can’t decide if we’d be stoked or terrified to have Danny’s job though.

Basketball Multitasking

Basketball Multitasking

Ilze Luneau knows how to handle her balls. Basketballs, that is. In this clip, she pulls off some astounding tricks with up to 6 balls at the same time. She just needs a better backing track.

Leather Head’s Melzer’s Boxing Club Chromexcel Medicine Ball’s rugged and manly shell will make you want to work out. Made of Chromexcel leather, it weighs 12.1 lbs and has an 11.5″ diameter.

Way Back Home (Short Film)

Way Back Home (Short Film)

We like the cinematography and soundtrack as much as the riding from Danny MacAskill in this short film, which follows him on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown of Dunvegan.

Mind Games (Short Film)

Mind Games (Short Film)

It may just be a Nike ad, but we appreciate the insight into the runner’s mind, specifically Casey Neistat’s, who carried a small HD video camera with him on runs for 3 weeks to shoot this movie.

Kiteboarding with Reno

Kiteboarding with Reno

The kiteboard rider doing the cool moves in this video is Reno Romeu, currently 8th in freestyle in the PKRA. Since it’s getting colder around here, it’s good to see the the Cauipe lagoon in Brazil too.

Goalie Celebration Fail

Goalie Celebration Fail

A goalkeeper makes a fabulous instinctive save to keep out a blaster from a penalty kick. Or so he thinks. Another example of premature celebration.  Either that or the penalty taker is a genius.

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

For some reason, the combination in Peter Miller’s Canon Rebel T2i video of spirited motocross skills, the evocative music of Sigur Rós and the season’s luminous light has us really mesmerized right now.

Speedflying

Speedflying

Halvor Angvik and Jokke Sommer think just skiing or parachuting isn’t exciting enough, so they do both at the same time. Good thing they uploaded this footage for people not as brave as they are.

NYC Marathon Time-Lapse

NYC Marathon Time-Lapse

Cool time-lapse footage of this year’s New York City Marathon at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the starting point of the race since 1976. Bonus: helicopter hovering like a dragonfly at 0:17.

Easiest Touchdown Ever

Easiest Touchdown Ever

Take notes, football coaches, because you can learn a thing or two from the Driscoll Middle School team, a bunch of young smart asses who pulled off the most effortless touchdown of all time.

Response to LeBron

Response to LeBron

Do the good people of Cleveland think LeBron James’ recent Rise ad for Nike is just more narcissistic, self-promotional build-up from a guy whose actions speak louder than his words? Hmm.

If you thought unicycling was a dorky pursuit, watch this video featuring the amazing Max Schulze pulling off the most extreme unicycle stunts we’ve ever seen, and you’ll quickly change your mind.

Marvel x NBA

Marvel x NBA

Kobe as Iron Man? Magic as Wolverine? MJ as Nick Fury? Marvel artists teamed up with ESPN to create a series of comic book cover-style art of NBA stars. If you’re a Cavs fan, brace yourself.

Earl the Bowler

Earl the Bowler

Pro bowler Chris Barnes takes on EARL (Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher) capable of rolling an identical shot nearly every time. But its precision is its downfall. The score stands: humans 1, robots 0.

Hula Hoop Stunt

Hula Hoop Stunt

Well, it isn’t free diving or sick parkour moves; it’s 4 non-extreme dudes having some good fun jumping through a hula hoop in a synchonized and humorous fashion. You’ve got to start somewhere.
