THE BEST Stunts

Insane R/C Copter Skills 3

Insane R/C Copter Skills 3

R/C chopper pilot Alan Szabo Jr. proves that Tareq Alsaadi isn’t the only one who knows how to do crazy tricks with his helicopter. Watch Alan make his ALIGN Trex 800E DFC zip around like a flying Tasmanian devil. That lawnmower bit at the end, whoa.

Inverted Flight Fun

Inverted Flight Fun

Record-setting stunt pilot Spencer Suderman takes us along for a crazy series of twists, turns, and barrel rolls, over Southern California. We can’t decide if the GoPro’s gimbal setup made us more or less dizzy than a stationary camera.

Red Bull Straight Rhythm After Dark

Red Bull Straight Rhythm After Dark

Bicyclists Tyler Bereman and Darryn Durham take a ride on the undulating Red Bull Straight Rhythm course in the darkness of night. We’re gonna guess that the illuminated smoke trails and starfield were enhanced in post-production, but they still look cool.

Downhill Double Backflip

Downhill Double Backflip

If rider Antoine Bizet’s downhill run at the 2016 Red Bull Rampage wasn’t impressive enough, about 2/3rds of the way down, he pulled off an incredible double backflip. See what Antoine saw, without fear of breaking any bones in this amazing GoPro POV footage.

Riding a Mega Swing

Riding a Mega Swing

Hanging in the basket of a hot air balloon can be quite a thrill. Hanging 400 feet beneath the basket of a hot air balloon, 6000 feet off the ground like these guys from the Red Bull Skydive team is just insane. Awe-inspiring, but still insane.

Maverick X3 Battle Broyale

Maverick X3 Battle Broyale

Drivers Justin Oquendo, Ryan Kibbe, and Ken Block take on Chris Forsberg, Dustin Jones, and Ballistic BJ Baldwin, kicking up dirt for days in the widebody Can-AM Maverick X3 ATV, with its crazy 24″ of suspension travel, 15″ of ground clearance, and speedy 154hp turbo 4 engine.

The Urban Shaolin

The Urban Shaolin

Stuntman Tien Hoang shows off some of his impressive shaolin kung fu moves in this weapons reel shot by director Colin Emerson on the streets of London, England. All we know is if we saw this guy coming at us, we’d run the other way, fast.

Fastest Woman on a Bicycle

Fastest Woman on a Bicycle

Denise Mueller broke the women’s paced bicycle land speed record, reaching 147.7 mph. She rode a custom KHS bicycle, as she drafted inches behind driver Shea Holbrook in a Range Rover Sport SVR which shielded her from the punishing winds of Utah’s salt flats.

Rocket Bike Jump

Rocket Bike Jump

In 1974, daredevil Evel Knievel infamously failed to jump the Snake River Canyon on a rocket bike. Now, stuntman Eddie Braun has pulled off the stunt, launching 2000ft into the sky off a 10-story ramp, at over 400mph. We’re hoping for some GoPro footage, but so far nothing.

Bathing in Hot Sauce

Bathing in Hot Sauce

File Cemre Candar’s latest video under “dumb things to never try,” as he loaded up his bathtub with over 1200 bottles of chili sauce, then took a dip in it. This makes his chocolate and beer baths look like the work of a Rhodes Scholar.

Unicycle on a Chimney

Unicycle on a Chimney

If you thought the guys who climbed to the top of giant smokestacks had balls of steel just getting up there, daredevil Flaviu Cernescu decided to juggle some oranges and ride his unicycle at the top of an 840 foot-tall tower. Oh yeah, the bricks were loose too.

Colin Furze’s Motorized 360º Swing

Colin Furze’s Motorized 360º Swing

Because it wouldn’t be a Colin Furze invention if it’s not motorized, the mad engineer strapped a paraglider’s powerful engine to his already crazy 360º swing. It wasn’t strong enough to throw him off, but we’re pretty sure it made him throw up.

Assassin’s Creed: The Leap of Faith

Assassin’s Creed: The Leap of Faith

This behind-the-scenes featurette for the Assassin’s Creed movie shows how they recreated the game’s trademark leap of faith mechanic. Stuntman Damien Walters actually did a 125ft freefall, but not into a stack of hay.

The Webbie Show 3

The Webbie Show 3

Freestyle BMX phenom Mark Webb pulls off one insane trick after another in this badass film by Jordan Bareham. Bikes are quite lightweight these days, but Webb’s violent flips must still take a lot of strength and balls. The track is Glitch Mob’s Seven Nation Army remix.

Colin Furze’s 360º Swing

Colin Furze’s 360º Swing

“I get motion sickness, I don’t particularly like heights, and I don’t like going upside down.” Regardless of his feelings, madman inventor Colin Furze built himself an insane swing that lets him flip all the way up and over to a height of more than 31 feet.

On the Roofs: New World Centre

On the Roofs: New World Centre

Our favorite trespassing tower climbers somehow got sponsored by beer maker Tuborg to illegally climb Hong Kong’s New World Centre. The 869ft building is currently undergoing renovation, but on the roofs managed to make it on top undetected.

The LEGO Treadmill

The LEGO Treadmill

(PG-13: Language) There are few greater pains than stepping on a LEGO block without shoes on. So to voluntarily run barefoot on top of a seemingly endless flow of the pointy plastic bricks seems completely masochistic. Then again, this video is from the guys who did this.

Skydiving without a Parachute

Skydiving without a Parachute

On 7/30/2016, daredevil Luke Aikins recently jumped from an airplane at 25,000 feet, and headed towards Earth without a chute. The trick to him not being splattered across the desert at the end of his 2-minute freefall? A giant net to break his fall.

Nitro World Games: Winning Runs

Nitro World Games: Winning Runs

An offshoot of Nitro Circus, Nitro World Games is all about pulling off the most amazing vert tricks on inline skates, skateboards, scooters, BMX and motorcycles. Highlights include a BMX 1080º front flip and an FMX double front flip. Full show here.

Human Slingshot BASE Jump

Human Slingshot BASE Jump

BASE jumpers are always looking for new places to jump from, but in the case of Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Poucher, they took to the air via a giant catapult, which exerted more than 6Gs on their bodies as they were flung sky high at speeds up to 125 mph.

A Plane, a Bike, and a Tightrope

A Plane, a Bike, and a Tightrope

Here’s a completely bonkers stunt in which aerobatic pilot Melissa Andrzejewski not only flies just a couple of feet from the ground, but does it while tightrope walker Sketchy Andy Lewis and freestyle Moto X rider Jimmy Fitzpatrick hang just overhead.

Wingsuit over a Volcano

Wingsuit over a Volcano

The world’s hottest daredevil, Roberta Mancino, recently took a helicopter ride over Chile’s active Villarrica volcano, and proceeded to jump out wearing her wingsuit. Props to Sebastian Alvarez, who went along for the ride, along with photographer Carlos Pedro Briceño.

Man on Spire

Man on Spire

The New York Times Magazine enlisted photographer Jimmy Chin and safety expert Jamison Walsh to climb to the tippy top of the spire on Manhattan’s 1 World Trade Center, and shared this eye-popping 360º video of the journey. We only wish the video were longer.

Between the Legs Double Dunk

Between the Legs Double Dunk

The highlight of the first season of TNT’s slam dunk competition The Dunk King is this crazy creation from known rim-wrecker Haneef Munir aka Young Hollywood. The man got so much air he found time to jam in two balls at once.

Quidditch Skydiving

Quidditch Skydiving

This is probably the closest us muggles will get to playing Quidditch in real life. In this commercial for Colombian telecoms company ETB, a group of skydivers played Hogwart’s dangerous game en route to the ground, complete with brooms and a hoop.

Rope Swing Dunks

Rope Swing Dunks

The Dunking Devils added an extreme twist to their freestyle basketball routine. They hung a basketball hoop under a railway bridge that’s suspended 32ft over the water, then used rope swings to pull off their slams and jams.
