THE BEST Stunts

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Aladdin Parkour

Aladdin Parkour

Action filmmaker Devin Supertramp and his crew headed to the historic streets of Uzbekistan to play out a chase sequence inspired by Disney’s Aladdin. Parkour athlete Calen Chan plays our protagonist as he bounces off walls, tears through alleyways, and bounces off rooftops to avoid the baddies. POV footage here.

Zero-G Pit Stop

Zero-G Pit Stop

We already know that the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 team is crazy fast at pit stops. But they recently were challenged to slow down and take their time. The big difference? They, their tools, wheels, and the car itself were all floating weightless in an Ilyushin Il-76 MDK cosmonaut training plane, 33,000 feet above earth.

Climbkhana Two

Climbkhana Two

Chief Hoonigan Ken Block is back to shred some more Toyo Tires, drifting through the most dangerous road in China – the 99 turn thriller that snakes through Tianmen Mountain. Watch in awe as he slides sideways through every corner in his Hoonitruck, a highly-modded 1977 Ford F-150 that makes 914hp.

Ninja Rider

Ninja Rider

BMX trials rider Tomomi Nishikubo goes above and beyond the call of duty with his stunt video, which not only showcases his impressive bicycling (and unicycling) skills, but manages to incorporate a story along the way. The track is Green = Go by The Phantoms.

Juggling Flaming Lawn Chairs

Juggling Flaming Lawn Chairs

Juggler Dan Foley recently posted a video of himself tossing about three metal lawn chairs, each with its legs set ablaze. The clip caught the attention of the Ellen show, and they asked him to put together an “audition” clip before his appearance on the talk show. He did the stunt even better this time around.

Bike Ski Jump Crash

Bike Ski Jump Crash

Rider Johannes Fischbach hopes to someday break the record for the world’s longest mountain bike jump. He recently made an attempt off of a 140-meter (459 ft) ski jump, but unfortunately couldn’t stick the landing. Amazingly, he got up and walked away from this terrifying stunt.

Felipe vs. the Loop

Felipe vs. the Loop

Felipe Nunes is a double amputee, but that doesn’t hold him back from his love for skateboarding. In this clip from RIDE Channel, Felipe goes up against his nemesis – a 360º loop he’s been trying to conquer for some time. With the help of some friends and a longer starting ramp, he was able to pull off the dangerous stunt.

Reverse Freerunning

Reverse Freerunning

Athlete Jason Paul showed off his amazing freerunning skills on the streets of Frankfurt, Germany, then the guys from Red Bull played the whole thing in reverse, making his already impressive tricks even more magical. The backwards staircase and dump truck slides were our favorite effects.

Transforming Skateboard Tricks

Transforming Skateboard Tricks

While the only moving parts on most skateboards are the trucks and wheels, Matt Tomasello wanted something more complex. So he set about building some wacky skateboards which can change form as he jumps off and back onto them. Matt shows off his wares and his trick skills in this compilation video from JENKEM.

Wibmer’s Law

Wibmer’s Law

Freestyle street trials and pro mountain bike rider Fabio Wibmer takes a break from the chaos of urban life in Austria by tuning out the world and turning everyday obstacles into ramps, rails, and balancing points for a series of impressive stunts. Behind the scenes video here.

70 mph Downhill Skateboarding

70 mph Downhill Skateboarding

Riding a skateboard downhill can be a thrill – at least until you have to stop. Now imagine bombing down a mountain road at speeds faster than cars take the same path. That’s exactly what boarder Josh Neuman did down one of Switzerland’s most epic driving roads. Bonus points for cameraman @jake_from_skatefarm.
