An Extreme Revolution – Extreme Sport

Bigger, higher, further and more dangerous! The people of the world are constantly becoming more adventurous. Sport is at the forefront of the extreme revolution with new and daring sports springing up everywhere! From the now relatively established sports like wakeboarding to the wacky and frankly silly, extreme ironing!

It seems the human thirst for action and adventure knows no bounds, whether it is kayaking down the Congo or climbing Kilimanjaro and then jumping off the summit with nothing but an umbrella! Okay, so perhaps parachutes are used rather than umbrellas but how extreme would that be? Paragliding, only with an umbrella! (Don’t try that at home kids!)

Popularity for these sports is huge and growing daily and some of them have even found themselves accepted as Olympic events in recent years, such as snowboarding and BMX biking. This brings sometimes lesser known sports to the masses and encourages more and more people to get involved.

It’s reasonable to suggest that the explosion of these adventurous sports is shaping the way sport will be perceived in years to come. I don’t think soccer fans have anything to worry about, there will always be soccer but it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that some of these events may end up on college curriculums in the not too distant future.

How cool would that be? To look at your timetable and see that after Maths you have double wakeboarding at the local lake! The English language is already taking on new complex shapes as the extreme sports community expands into homes and families the world over.

The internet is jam packed full of websites dedicated to various shades of extreme sport. If you “Google” kitesurfing, for example, you will see almost two million results pop up! Make that more than six million for wakeboarding and a massive sixteen million for snowboarding! The revolution is in full swing and one of the great things about taking part is that you can often explore and experience some amazing parts of this great planet too.

So, hold on tight, grab your board, skates, chute, sail, boots, shades etc and enjoy the ride of your life as you join the extreme revolution.
