If you’d like to brush up on your survival skills for few days or a week, head out into the wilderness this summer and see how well you manage without the usual necessities. While it doesn’t seem too thrilling, to begin with, you’ll quickly find yourself in the middle of nowhere with only a sparkling fire and an empty stomach.
Bring your bike with to make it a bit easier to navigate as far away from civilization as possible, and remember to look at a mountain bike insurance before you head out.
Don’t go at it alone, though, invite a group of friends with you and divide the tasks to make it a bit easier to survive. Especially if this is your first time doing this – you don’t want your first survival camp to end with being rescued by a team after getting lost in the forest.
If you prefer to walk on a line rather than the ground, then this strange sport is for you. It’s the perfect combination of balancing and enjoying nature; if this is your first introduction to slacklining, you’ll be pleased to hear that most people find it relatively easy to learn.
Find yourself a steady someone, set up a line, and see how well you do. It’s a rather new sport, and you can find a lot of tips for beginners, such as in this handy article.
When you’d like to show off your skills, look no further than cliff diving. Besides from having to be quite the diver, you need first to climb up high, then figure out where to make the leap in order to avoid rocks, and finally muster up the courage to launch yourself towards the water. It’s the ideal sport for those who like heights, climbing, and diving – as well as having to be confident with pointing out a safe spot to dive.
When you get really into it, you might want to check out the different locations around the world that are popular for cliff diving. Red Bull’s cliff diving contest, for example, could be a good place to start if you’d like to find the best spots.
Extreme Motor Sports
Anything with a decent engine can be turned into a sport for thrill seekers, that’s for sure. Some people take it further than simply driving faster than normal, though, and feel the urge to leap through the air with their vehicle, driving off-road, and challenging their bike or car to perform the most outrageous stunts. There’s a lot to choose from, and you don’t have to stick to the regular drag race to feel alive.
If you’ve first caught the adrenaline bug, you’re most likely going to feel it call your name whenever you find a new extreme sport. Some of these are a bit more unusual than others, so it should be something for every thrill seeker to enjoy.
