For this New Year, don’t make any boring resolutions like “lose weight” or “save money”. While those kinds of things are important, why not resolve to go outside of the box for this year and take on a challenge that scares you? If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, then check out these three extreme sports. Each one will get your adrenaline pumping and your brain buzzing. Strap on your motorcycle helmets and let’s go!
What You Need: high jumping spot, bungee cord, certified instructor, balls of steel
If you’ve never tried this wicked sport before, then you are in for a wild ride. Most people who bungee say that the experience is unlike anything else, as the adrenaline of falling from a great height is second to none. Even knowing that you will bounce back, doesn’t make it any less thrilling. Just make sure you follow all safety procedures and give yourself plenty of space.
Even if you ride a bike on your daily commute, it’s not the same as competing in a race against other riders (and the clock). Motorcycle racing is an exciting sport and one that can give you a rush as you speed around corners. Again, be sure to wear all the requisite equipment, and get off the track immediately if you wipe out.
What You Need: tall surface, hang glider, helmet, gloves, hands of steel
You’ve probably seen people try this sport out before, and you have to admit that it looks amazing. Flying through the air is the best way to see the countryside, and the fact that you can feel the wind on your face is a huge plus. The adrenaline kicks in when you first take off and when you’re trying to land, as both are a bit tricky. Be sure to go with a professional your first time!
No matter what sport you try, as long as you have the right safety gear (like motorcycle helmets), then you will be fine. Drink in the adrenaline, and turn it into fun!
