THE BEST Stunts

Everywhere

Everywhere

Reminiscent of the POV action movie Hardcore Henry (and a little bit of Buttered Side Down), athlete Alex Schauer’s parkour short film puts us behind the eyes of a man as he finds himself in a puzzling situation, and facing off against a mysterious woman in black who he can’t seem to escape.

200-Foot Motorcycle Jump

200-Foot Motorcycle Jump

Freerider and eight-time X Games medalist Colby Raha can fly like Superman on his dirt bike. In this clip, he makes it look easy as he sends his bike over 200 feet off of a improvised dirt ramp with his bike in 5th gear.

Terrakhana: Extended Cut

Terrakhana: Extended Cut

Back in 2017, pro driver Ken Block took on a wide-open patch of dusty, hilly desert in Swing Arm City, Utah. As he ripped through the dunes, he sent dirt flying in every direction from beneath the wheels of his buzzy 600 hp Ford Fiesta rallycross car. This extended cut features thrilling bonus footage not seen in its original release.

David Blaine: Ascension

David Blaine: Ascension

Illusionist and daredevil David Blaine connected himself to a bunch of weather balloons and flew more than 24,000 feet into the skies above the Arizona desert. It’s pretty obvious that the arm holding him up is attached to a harness, but the rest of the stunt is impressive. Highlight reel here.

Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle

Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle

Inspired by legendary daredevil Evel Knievel, comes a remake of one of the most iconic kids toys of the 1970s. The classic wind-up stunt bike set is back in production for a limited time. The new version has an improved gear mechanism so you can send your pint-sized stunt man flying even faster.

Butt Skiing Like a Boss

Butt Skiing Like a Boss

(Loud) Normally, when you go waterskiing, you try and stand on your feet. Being dragged through the water on your butt isn’t usually the objective. But that’s exactly what Benjamin Thompson does as his finishing move to the shoreline, after showboating with a bit of barefooting.

The Real Jumpman

The Real Jumpman

Washington State University track and field star Ray Wells Jr. shows of his incredible jumping skills as he bounces over a series of sequentially taller hurdles until reaching a peak of 55″. He makes it look so effortless you’d think his shoes were spring-loaded. They’re not.

Ride at the Museum

Ride at the Museum

While hiding out amongst historical figures is a typical night at the museum fantasy, trials rider Adrian Guggemos prefers things that involve wheels. So he locked himself (and a film crew) inside the Technik Museen Sinsheim Speyer to perform a bunch of tricks among the museum’s many cars, airplanes, and motorcycles.

Under-bridge Trampoline

Under-bridge Trampoline

The guys from DD Squad are always doing crazy stunts, and this one is quite the spectacle. Watch as the daredevil squad and their friends Jesse Heffels, FaceTeam, and Greg Roe GTR perform flips, acrobatic tricks, and high dives from a trampoline they rigged under a massive stone arch bridge in Solkan, Slovenia.

360 Double Backflip Tailwhip

360 Double Backflip Tailwhip

BMX rider and Nitro Circus athlete Ryan Williams must be pretty happy with himself after landing what is apparently the first ever 360 double backflip tailwhip. He says it took him months of prep and practice, and it was one of the hardest tricks he’s ever pulled off. Check out the dizzying helmet-cam view here.

Wheelchair Rope Swing

Wheelchair Rope Swing

Dunking Devils stuntman and athlete Gašper “Gap” Novak recently broke both of his ankles. Ouch. To help keep his spirits up, his teammates rigged up a special rope swing to give Gap a little thrill while seated in his wheelchair.

Couch Potato Paragliding

Couch Potato Paragliding

Paragliding can be lots of fun, but it’s usually done with a special harness that you wear around your body. Not so for daredevil Hasan Kaval, who rigged up a loveseat and a TV set to his parachute, then took to the skies for a relaxing flight. He’s got a table lamp there, so why doesn’t he do it at night?

Riding The Best Line

Riding The Best Line

Take a ride along the skinniest line possible with mountain biker “Dangerous Dave” Herr. Watch as he negotiates wooden paths, some of which are roughly the width of his forks in this award-winning clip in the Pinkbike and “GoPro of the World” best line contest. Watch from a different perspective here.

Fabio Wibmer: Home Office

Fabio Wibmer: Home Office

Fabio Wibmer is one of the world’s most talented street trials bicyclists. Like many of us, his options for going out are a bit more limited than before. But rather than get frustrated, Fabio turned his home into a playground for his bike riding antics. Fortunately, his roommates are good sports. Also, we want to live in that house.

Chase Her

Chase Her

After a beautiful woman drops her handkerchief, mountain bike trials rider Tomomi Nishikubo heads off on a rather circuitous route to find her in this amusing freestyle action video shot around Tokyo. We loved the bits of humor scattered throughout, especially the pit stop scene.

Quarantined Stuntmen

Quarantined Stuntmen

When it comes to professions, being a stuntman is one that’s pretty difficult to do from home. But that didn’t stop a bunch of these action daredevils from performing a bit of fight choreography while still maintaining social distancing boundaries. The clip comes courtesy of Campus Univers Cascades stunt academy.

Juho Kilkki: Social Distancing

Juho Kilkki: Social Distancing

Like many of us, skier Juho Kilkki is avoiding crowds and keeping to himself these days. But he still wants to get outside for some exercise. In this clip, he practices a few little tricks, not the least of which is recording it all without a cameraman. We love the low-tech rigs he set up to add movement to the shots.

The Story of Lawnchair Larry

The Story of Lawnchair Larry

From the invention of the wheel to landing on the Moon, humans have accomplished many great things. Not all achievements are as world-changing, like the time truck driver Larry Walters floated 16,000 feet into the sky after attaching dozens of weather of balloons to his lawnchair. Half as Interesting shares his story.

Volvo Trucks: The Tower

Volvo Trucks: The Tower

Volvo Trucks celebrates the launch of four new models, the FMX, the FH, the FH16, and the FM by stacking all four of the trucks together then driving them with brand President Roger Alm atop the impressive pile. The behind the scenes video is worth a watch too.

Jetman over Dubai

In a first, Jetman Dubai pilot Vince Reffet combined both hovering and high-altitude aerobatic maneuvers in the same flight, as he took off over the water then headed towards the beachfront skyscrapers of the big city. During his 3-minute journey, he reached a peak altitude of more than 5900 feet, with speeds approaching 250 mph.

Land Rover Defender x 007

Land Rover Defender x 007

Land Rover shows off some capabilities of its new 2020 Defender with stunt footage from the James Bond flick No Time to Die. Like the Defender of yore off-roader tears through mud, rocks, and streams, gets some air, and even a crazy rollover. The vehicles received no body reinforcements other than roll cages for safety.

Trainyard Trampoline Park

Trainyard Trampoline Park

DD Squad, the acrobats behind the world’s largest trampoline are back, and this time they’ve built themselves a playground filled with bouncy surfaces. Their freestyle trampoline park included shipping containers for them to jump off of and climb, and a crazy trampoline sandwich on the back of a moving 18-wheeler.

Zipline Dive Catapult

Zipline Dive Catapult

They guys from DD Squad rigged up a crazy zipline with a hard stop in the middle, making their athletes catapult into the river below when they hit the sweet spot. Given their acrobatic skills, they had to show off with some crazy flips.

Tiny Skate Loop

Tiny Skate Loop

This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen a skateboarder do a 360º loop de loop, but we’ve never seen it done on a loop nearly this tight. Boarder Simon Isaksson pulled off the daunting task after a seemingly endless stream of failed attempts.

Danny MacAskill’s Gymnasium

Danny MacAskill’s Gymnasium

Trials bike guru and Red Bull athlete Danny MacAskill dropped by the local gym to get in a workout. But you won’t find him on the elliptical or doing squats. Nope, Danny gets in all of his reps behind the wheel of his skillfully-balanced bicycle. Be sure to stick around for the bloopers at the end.
