Red Bull followed BMX star Tim Knoll as he performed his repertoire of bike parkour tricks. Watch him pull off a wall climb, moonwalk, reverse rail grind and other head scratching tricks. That skate park sequence is insane.

Playing with Fire

Flyboard Air Fun

We’ve seen the insane Flyboard Air in action before, but never like this. Filmmaker Devin Supertramp spent some time capturing Zapata’s amazing flying platform as it zoomed overhead at speeds over 100 mph. We so want to fly one of these things.

Man vs. Fan

…and not just any plane. The Boeing 787-9 is a passenger airplane mostly made of carbon laminate, but it still weighs over 280,000 lb. The Tesla Model X P100D managed to tow the beast, setting a Guinness World Record in the process. Cue “yo mama” jokes.

Video Game Stunt Tribute

A group of stunt actors perform a series of routines in the fighting styles of five video game series, Assassin’s Creed, Metal Gear, Witcher, Uncharted, and our personal fave, God of War. The sound design is a little over the top, but the fight choreography is spot on. (Thanks Micah!)

F1 Car Goes Skiing

F1 Car Goes Skiing

F1 cars are hard enough to handle around a smoothly paved race track, so we can only imagine how much effort it took racer Max Verstappen to muscle his Red Bull F1 car down a ski slope in Kitzbühel – Tirol. Even with chains on the tires, it had to have been a handful.

M:I Fallout Helicopter Stunt BTS

M:I Fallout Helicopter Stunt BTS

Candide Thovex: Quattro 2

Another year has passed, and GoPro action cameras yet again helped to capture some of the year’s most epic, beautiful, entertaining, and dramatic sights. There’s no way a sub-3-minute video can sum it all up, but it’s still worth a watch – even if it is just a commercial.

Longest Body Burn

Longest Body Burn

Daredevil Antony Britton set the Guinness World Record for longest distance full body burn w/o oxygen, running 670 feet before the Stannage International Stunt Team put him out. He also ran the fastest 100m fire sprint, which is something most of us would do if set ablaze.

Matt Jones: Frames of Mind

How to Cross the Road

A young man gets a running start and proceeds to jump all the way across the width of a two-lane suburban street. While it may seem like the kid has superhuman powers, his long jump is well short of the world’s record of 29 ft, 2.5 in set by Bob Beamon in 1968.

Extreme Trail Running

Extreme Trail Running
