For their latest #BuiltForIt trial, the guys from Caterpillar arranged to turn several of their huge industrial machines into a golf course on wheels, then turned loose two LPGA professionals to try and hit the green. BTS footage here.

Real Life Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

Real Life Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

(PG-13 Language) Nope, this is not footage from a video game. Director Claudio Voicu and a group of freerunners wonderfully recreated a time trial stage from the upcoming prequel Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. Behind the scenes here.

Real Car, Virtual Course

Real Car, Virtual Course

To promote its EDGE product line, Castrol enlisted Matt Powers to drift his 650hp Ford Mustang while wearing an Oculus Rift that simulated a course filled with daunting obstacles. Watch the 360° version here. BTS video here.

Motorcycle Surfing

Motorcycle Surfing

The skateboard was invented to sate the landbound surfer’s itch, but apparently a motorcycle going at at least 50mph works too. If you don’t care for the stunt, Utah’s beautiful countryside makes this video worth watching.

Motorcycle Fire Tunnel

Motorcycle Fire Tunnel

Stuntmen Enrico Schoeman and André de Kock pulled off this death-defying record breaking feat in which they drove their motorcycle through a 395 foot-long tunnel of fire – and this is after they were injured on previous attempts.

Triple Scooter Backflip

Triple Scooter Backflip

During a recent Nitro Circus event, performer R Willy pulled off an astounding feat – the world’s first triple backflip on a scooter. Apparently, he’s been attempting this at every show for two years straight, so persistence pays off.

Insane Hi-Rise Parkour

Insane Hi-Rise Parkour

Despite being only 15 seconds long, this POV video of parkour acrobat Oleg Cricket running and jumping between ledges atop a hi-rise will have you sitting on the edge of your seat – because you probably wet your pants.

On the Roofs: Shenzhen Centre

On the Roofs: Shenzhen Centre

The latest conquest of the trespassing thrill-seekers known as On the Roofs is the Ping An Finance Centre in Shenzhen, China. Still under construction, the skyscraper currently stands about 2,200ft. high.

Crazy Bike Swap

Crazy Bike Swap

Before the Kia World Extreme Games, rider Pat “Big Daddy” Laughlin performed an insane stunt, riding his bike down a ramp, dismounting and landing on another bike to finish his ride. We went from “No way.” to “Way!” and you will too.

FMX Triple Backflip

FMX Triple Backflip

Nitro Circus and Red Bull rider Josh Sheehan made history by pulling off the world’s first triple backflip on a motorcycle. The air he got was insane, but his measured landing is even more impressive (and important).

Skateboarding without Wheels

Skateboarding without Wheels

Wheels? We don’t need no steenkin’ wheels! That’s the thought that must have been going through the minds of MAJER Crew as they show off some skate tricks with the wheels pulled off of their skateboards, riding only on the bearings.

Kid vs. Kite

Kid vs. Kite

YouTuber DJ Spillz shared this video of a kid chasing a Revolution sport kite. The advanced kite offers precise control of its speed, direction, angl– nah. The kite is alive. It’s the only explanation that makes sense.

Wingsuit Battering Ram

Wingsuit Battering Ram

Wingsuit flyer Sebastian Alvarez just gets more and more daring. His latest stunt had him smashing head first into what appears to be a small styrofoam board, which was held aloft by two of his bravest buddies on top of a mountain.

World’s Fastest Mountain Biker

World’s Fastest Mountain Biker

Donning a special suit, and battling fierce winds, 54 year-old stuntman Eric Barone broke his 2000 downhill mountain bike speed record by riding his bike down a mountain in the French Alps, hitting an blistering top speed of 138.75mph.

Chainsaw Ice Skating

Chainsaw Ice Skating

We can think of not many ideas more insane than pulling yourself along the surface of a frozen lake using the tip of a working chainsaw as your propulsion. But that didn’t stop skier Erik Sunnerheim from giving it a try anyhow.

GTA V Online Quadruple Barrel Roll

GTA V Online Quadruple Barrel Roll

YouTuber samigniz was being chased by another player on a fighter jet in Grand Theft Auto V Online when he saw a golden opportunity. He went up a small bank and flipped his car into the air just as the jet fired its guns.

Double Front-Flip POV

Double Front-Flip POV

Bike rider Bienvenido Aguado Alba’s GoPro captured exactly what he saw when he crash landed, then later pulled off the first ever competition double front-flip – giving us just a small taste of the rush he must have experienced.

Snowboard Double 1620º

Snowboard Double 1620º

Yuki Kadono won the 2015 Burton US Open Men’s Slopestyle with this video game-caliber run. The 18-year old smoothly pulled off two 1620º somersaults – that’s 4-1/2 rotations – in quick succession. Does he weigh anything?

Furious 7: C-130 Drop

Furious 7: C-130 Drop

It turns out the crew of Furious 7 actually dropped cars from a cargo plane for one of the movie’s stunts. Even though they didn’t actually toss all the cars at once, it was still one heck of an undertaking, especially for the cameramen.

The BASE Race

The BASE Race

A duo of daredevils race each other to the top of a 27-story abandoned building, only to jump out when they reach the top floor. We’re just glad they didn’t snag their chutes on any of the debris on the way up.

Snowboarding Behind an Airplane

Snowboarding Behind an Airplane

Snowboarder Jamie Barrow is known for his speed, but this stunt took things to a whole new level. Ultimately, Jamie hit 78mph before letting go. We wonder if he wore a parachute if he could go airborne and then land safely. Probably not.

BASE Jump Through Fog

BASE Jump Through Fog

This is a metaphor for many of life’s challenges. Something about lights, tunnels, heights and broken bones. Er, live by making sure today’s going to be your last? We’ll just let Marshall Miller show you. He’s a walking motivational poster.

Momkhana

Momkhana

Sure, it’s a shameless plug for Famous Footwear, but that doesn’t make the sight of Shauna Duggins taking the kids for the ride of their lives in 550hp RWD minivan any less awesome. Parents, don’t try this at home. (Thanks Spencer!)

挑战者 (Challenger)

挑战者 (Challenger)

The latest short film form LBP Stunts Chicago is a bloody good demonstration of their martial arts and fight choreography skills, as a single kung fu disciple must fight his way up the ladder of challenging opponents.

Ice Climbing Niagara Falls

Ice Climbing Niagara Falls

There have been numerous attempts to descend the waters of Niagara Falls, but ice climber Will Gadd decided to go the other direction, climbing his way up the frozen falls in the dead of winter. This seems no safer than going over in a barrel.
