Top 15 Extreme Sports and the Best Locations to Enjoy Them

Estimated read time 13 min read

Many “classic” sports are well-known and well-liked by people from all over the world. Some examples of these games include tennis, basketball, golf, and soccer. You can also choose from a wide variety of insane and extreme sports, any one of which is certain to blow your head.

Because adrenaline plays such a significant role in the enjoyment that may be derived from participating in sports, it is not surprising that individuals have sought out activities and sports that produce the highest levels of heart-pounding action, despite the possibility that doing so might not have been the safest thing to do.

You must give these folks credit for their imagination and also their courage in thinking up with and participating in some of these jaw-dropping sports.

Extreme sports like skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding do not appear quite so extreme when you witness people actually executing these wild activities.

The dangerous and challenging aspects of these sports have prevented many of them from gaining popularity in other parts of the world. While some have been what you might term an obscure sport and are not expected to grow, others are becoming increasingly popular and you might one day witness people fighting on your TV screens.

We can only keep our fingers crossed in the hopes that that’s the case, as the vast majority of such sports are, at the same time, riveting, breathtaking, dramatic, spectacular, and humorous.

Do you what is the national sport of USA?

While there is a degree of risk involved in participating in any sport, many of these insane extreme sports put participants in situations that are extraordinarily hazardous and require them to put themselves in harm’s way.

Adrenaline junkies feed off of situations like these, and they wouldn’t have handled it any other way if they could help it. With such in mind, I strongly advise that you do not attempt any of these activities at home, children.

15 Craziest Extreme Sports

The following is a list of the top 15 most extreme sports that may be found anywhere in the world.


Zorb-Ball Zorbing Extreme Sports

Zorbing is a sport that has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and there is a good explanation for this: the sport appears to be a lot of fun to participate in and is also quite entertaining to observe. Climbing inside a big inflatable orb and being sent down a hillside at high speeds is the objective of this extreme activity, which originated in New Zealand along with a large number of other extreme sports and activities.

The average distance covered in one run is approximately one-half mile. This means that there’s a layer of air in between the two inflated orbs that make up the orb (this functions as a means of shock absorption and guarantees that it’s safe).

The orb has two layers in total. If you are seeking a sport that can make you feel sick to your stomach, disoriented, pumped full of adrenaline and in fits of laughter, then this is the activity for you.

Limbo Skating

Limbo Skating Extreme Sports

Roller skating is used in the sport of limbo skating, which involves limboing under obstacles while on roller skates. Many people have discovered a means to move under obstacles that are only a few inches off the ground.

It is already astonishing to see someone in limbo below a bar that is just a few centimeters off the ground, but to see someone do this while skating makes it even more impressive because they have to keep their balance while spreading their legs apart.

Gagan Satish, a limbo skater from India who was only 6 years old at the time, broke the world milestone in 2014 while limbo skating beneath 39 cars that had been parked only five inches above the ground.

It took him only 29 seconds to cross approximately 230 feet, as well as the footage of the accomplishment is simply incredible to behold. Although not quite as extreme as a few of the other records, limbo skating is nonetheless a risky sport that is both peculiar and enjoyable to watch because of its uniqueness.

Crocodile Bungee Jumping


I give full credit to whoever came up with a technique to make the experience of bungee jumping further horrifying, as I’m not sure how you could top adding crocodiles to the mix as an additional element of danger.

Some people who are addicted to adrenaline decide that bungee jumping across a pit full of crocodiles is a more extreme way to get their fix than falling from a high point linked to an elastic band and landing on the earth below. The cord holding one woman’s feet together broke as she was doing this while crossing the Victoria Falls Bridge; however, she was still able to swim away from harm in spite of the fact that her feet were bound together.

 In another advertisement that Foster produced the slogan “New Foster’s Hit Faucet… Don’t Drop Your Head” was paired with a cartoon depiction of someone getting their skull bitten off while attempting to crocodile bungee jump.

High Lining

High Lining Adventure Sports

Slacklining is a form of tightrope walking that takes place in urban settings. While most individuals practice it with the line only a few feet above the surface, there are those brave souls who take it to new heights by slacklining over cliff faces and other potentially hazardous terrain.

Even though the individual who is riding the rope will often wear a harness tied to the rope on its own, falling at either the beginning or the end of the rope might send them slamming into the cliff face, while a fall in the center might trigger the rope to break.

However, the fact that the high line delivers such a great rush is what renders it so appealing, and the fact that it guarantees amazing vistas that perhaps no one has ever seen before also contributes to its allure.

Mountain Unicycling


Mountain biking seems a sport that is extreme, hazardous, and exhilarating, yet for some individuals, it is still not enough. Some people who are into extreme sports believe that riding a bicycle with 2 wheels isn’t difficult enough, so they opt for riding a unicycle over mountains and across rugged terrains instead.

The majority of people have trouble riding unicycles, so the concept of crossing a mountainside on it seems like a step too far. It is a very tough extreme sport to get the hang of, and most people have trouble with it.

Conquering a mountain with only one wheel requires a lot of courage, drive, and expertise. Despite the fact that you may not attain speeds as high as mountain biking, it is undoubtedly quite amazing.




Creeking is without a doubt one of the riskiest activities that can be participated in; but, because of the inherent excitement of the activity, it is also among the most exciting. Creeking is a water sport that is comparable to canoeing as well as kayaking, but it entails navigating down steep, low-volume white water that features waterfalls, slides, and unknown canyons.

 This necessitates the use of canoes that have been modified for the purpose, in addition to the provision of additional safety gear, in order to provide the highest level of protection for the participants.

Creeking presents its participants with a variety of challenges that are exclusive to the activity, such as sieves, in which the paddler becomes trapped underwater; chicken heads, in which rocks protrude from slides; and waterfalls, in which the proper landing is essential. This is not something that should be attempted by someone with a weak stomach.


Powerbocking Dangerous Adventure Sport

Performers have the ability to throw themselves toward the air as well as reach heights that are very astonishing by using a device that resembles an intersection between low heels and pogo sticks. Because of this, they are able to accomplish a wide variety of feats, and as a result, skateparks all over the world now host people participating in this extreme sport alongside BMX riders, skaters, and skateboarders.

Performers have the capacity to take strides as long as nine feet, jump as high as around 5 feet off the ground, and move at speeds of up to twenty miles per hour.

This implies that there are apparent risks associated with participating in this extreme activity; nevertheless, it also provides participants with the opportunity to “jump such a kangaroo, sprint like a gazelle, and glide like a giant.” After watching someone else walk around on this scaffolding, you are going to want to give it a go yourself as soon as you can.

Extreme Dinghy Racing


The fact that extreme dinghy racing remains one of the most dangerous and exciting forms of motorsport makes it a strong contender for the title of the most entertaining form of the sport. In this type of racing, which takes place in Australia through several small bogs and canals, the stakes are extremely high because even a minor error in judgment or judgment error could end in a catastrophic accident.

You will also badly want to avoid taking a tumble toward the water because there are snakes, crocodiles, and a variety of additional creepy crawlies waiting for you in the water.

The popularity of extreme dinghy racing seemed to be growing every year, and currently Red Bull puts on an annual derby that draws big crowds to watch thrill-seekers maneuver their dinghies through twisting marshes at high speeds.

Wing Walking


Walking across the wings of an airplane while it is in flight is one of the few activities that may be described as both an adrenaline-pumping as well as extreme experience. As a result, the practice of “wing walking” has become an increasingly common extreme sport or pastime.

The rider will typically be secured to the upper wing of a historic biplane before being propelled through the air at a speed of as high as 135 miles per hour. In addition, the pilot will frequently engage in a variety of aerial acrobatics while the ride is in progress.

Because you are secured to the plane throughout this extreme sport, it is not a very hazardous activity; yet, you can rest assured that it remains the most exhilarating ride possible and that it will keep your stomach in knots the entire time.

Air Kicking


Air Kicking is not only a very enjoyable form of extreme sport, but it also happens to be one that a significant number of people have expressed an interest in trying out (unlike the majority of the other activities on this list).

This extreme and craziest adventure activity, Air Kicking is similar to being thrown through the atmosphere into a foam pit or swimming pool, and despite the fact that it is completely risk-free, you can be certain that it will cause your adrenaline levels to spike. You are propelled upwards through the atmosphere along a predetermined parabolic trajectory that makes use of air pressure as well as water rebound technology.

This trajectory shoots you into the sky. It is estimated that approximately 60 litres of water are pushed through a nozzle located below the seat, which launches participants approximately 8 meters toward the air before they splash down into the water below. It looks like a lot of fun to do, and it must be quite a show to observe as well.

Volcano Boarding

Volcano Boarding Extreme Sports

It might seem like something straight of a James Bond movie, but hurtling downhill an active volcano upon a thin sheet of board or metal has actually become a highly regarded extreme sport as well as is performed by many people.

The sport is especially popular on Nicaragua’s Cerro Negro, which has a vertical drop of 726 meters and allows competitors to reach incredible speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.

As is the case with the majority of extreme sports, wearing protective gear is critical and helps reduce the severity of injuries to minor scrapes and bumps. On the other hand, there is the possibility that the volcano will erupt, causing molten lava to flow down its slopes in a direction that not even 007 can avoid.

Cheese Rolling


Every year, English locals gather near Gloucester for a race known as the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling as well as Wake. Participants in the race will chase after a nine-pound round of Extra Gloucester cheese as it tumbles down a hill, with the winner receiving the cheese for their prize.

Cheese rolling may appear to be a harmless sprint to the bottom of an inflatable hill, but the terrain is extremely steep and uneven, causing participants to frequently and violently fall.

You need to view footage of the event to fully appreciate how insanely hilarious it is, as every year there are a number of injuries, many of which require medical treatment. It was once a modest celebration for the residents of the nearby village, but today it attracts visitors from all over the globe.

Cliff Diving

Cliff jumping

The name of this insane extreme sport gives away the fact that it entails jumping off of cliffs and plunging into the water below. Free-falling down the air will provide you with a major rush of adrenaline, you will be at one with nature, and there is no particular clothing/equipment to acquire, all of which are fantastic perks of this extreme sport.

However, it is extremely risky and can impose considerable physical stress on your body. Breaking bones or compressing the spine upon impact with water is bad enough, but falling on rocks, branches, or fish can be lethal. In order to navigate through the water with the least amount of difficulty, you must always jump into the water feet first in a straight path.

Wingsuit Flying

Wingsuit Flying Craziest Sports

Everyone has daydreamed about what it might be like to fly at some point in their lives. You can experience this sensation while wingsuit flying, an extreme sport that combines diving as well as hang gliding and involves donning a wingsuit that makes the participant looks like a winged squirrel.

When you leap from a great height and stretch your arms and legs, the extra surface area of the suit creates a lift that allows you to fly. The descent to earth is then similar to skydiving in that a parachute is needed. Wingsuit flying is dangerous, but it’s also the closest you’ll get to feeling like a superhero or, at the very least, a flying squirrel.

Train Surfing

Train Surfing Craziest Adventures

The inventor of Train Surfing has obviously seen a lot of action movies, and the activity itself is forbidden in most countries.

Naturally, the activity known as “train surfing,” which entails a person climbing on the roof of a moving train and “surfing” its motion, is fraught with peril? Many people in South Africa have tragically lost their lives trying to ride trains without tickets.

 Surfing atop the InterCityExpress, Germany’s quickest train was a popular trend in the 1980s and 1990s, and it gained attention again in 2005 after someone calling themselves “The Trainrider” accomplished the feat. After 40 German youths perished trying this extreme sport just a few years afterwards, it became clear that this was too far.
