The surfers wet dream? Riding a 90-foot perfect wave formed by Tsunami weather!
This wave looks more like a moving mountain than a wave! The attempt to have anything to do with this wave other than running in the opposite direction screaming like a little girl is insanity.
That however, didn’t stop big wave rider, Garrett McNamara and his support team from going where few others would dare. This 90-foot whopper was filmed off the coast of Nazare, Portugal with the city making a truly beautiful backdrop.
McNamara and his support staff use a jet ski to get the surfer in the perfect position to take off on the journey of a lifetime. When he does thousands of pounds of force generated by the wave propel him along at ever increasing speeds.
The cost for wiping out on a wave like this? Undoubtedly death! Yet the reward is one too beautiful and too indescribable for big wave surfers like McNamara to turn away from.
When it comes to extreme sports, nothing gets the blood pumping like base jumping and soring the skies with a wingsuit!
This extraordinarily dangerous extreme sport is retained for only the most insane of the adrenaline junkies. Jeb Corliss has made a life and a career out of chasing the free fall, chasing the adrenaline rush that only comes from being only centimetres from death.
Corliss has become one of the foremost BASE jumpers over 14 years of jumping from monuments the world over. His career has including death defying jumps from:
However, it hasn’t been a dream career with a near death experience after a jump from Table Mountain that ended in disaster. Wingsuiting down the mountain Corliss smashed into a rock outcrop and was sent to the hospital in a critical condition.
Lesson learnt? NO! As soon as he was out of the hospital Corliss was getting ready to jump again. The definition of insanity? Yes, although the video is a work of art, NUTS is the obvious conclusion.
If you are a fan of guns, explosions and insane Russians then the popular YouTube channel FPSRussia is for you!
The show revolves around Dmitri Potapoff a Russian obsessed with all things that involve firearms and explosions. In actual fact the thick accented Potapoff is the all American Kyle Myers playing the role of the Russian gun fanatic.
Each episode involves Myers reviewing a new firearm, from revolvers to 50cal rifles and flamethrowers. It then degrades into an all-out explosive extravaganza with zombie targets, huge explosions and messy paint can exploding demonstrations.
This guy definitely has some Guts. Check out our promotion page and find the best Guts promo codes and show your Guts!
With his signature tagline, Meyers ends each episode telling his viewers to “Have nice day!” Meyers’ insane Russian character is a whirling good time to watch, however Nuts is about the only description worth applying to the insanity!
When a crazy woman stops superstar Michael Buble, the audience has no idea that they are about to watch a Guts or Nuts choice from a 15 year old boy.
Michael Buble is famous for his informal concerts, taking the time to give a personal experience to each and every one of his audience. However, I don’t think he even expected Sam’s pushy Mom taking control and getting her son his chance in the spotlight.
“Holy Shit Ballz Mom”, is Michael’s reaction and I think everyone in the audience had a similar reaction. In that split second 15 year old Sam had an option suck it up and have the guts to take his chance. Guts or Nuts? I am going to have to go with Guts!
Subculture, global movement or complete and utter insanity?
Parkour is the practise of moving quickly and efficiently through their environment using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves, negotiating obstacles in between. They try to maintain as much momentum as possible without being unsafe.
Yes, this is a horribly academic description of an amazing global movement that has taken the world by storm! Their level of insanity is only eclipsed by the beauty and ease of their movements. As a sport Parkour has always fascinated me, the fact that the dreary wrestling is an Olympic sport and Parkour isn’t, is a travesty!
The only thing better than watching Parkour done well? Is watching Parkour done badly! A quick YouTube search of Parkour fails, will supply hours of rip-roaring laughter and entertainment.
The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 600-mile (1,000km), the dessert is one of few deserts on Earth that doesn't receive any rain. The Atacama Crossing? This is where things get interesting! The Atacama Crossing is an annual trail running race that involves crossing the dessert, on foot and unaided.
The fascination with crossing uninhabited wastelands has also baffled me. These men and woman risk life and limb to be able to say they did something, bring on the super trike you can keep your dessert.
The race consists of 7 days, covering 150 miles (250km) crossing what is widely held as the driest place on earth. The race is represented by competitors from 40 countries and is 1 of 4 of such events that are held in the most desolate places on earth.
The four other race locations include:
The four locations are probably at the very bottom of my list of places to go before I die. I have the utmost respect for the fitness and mental fortitude it must take for these competitors to make these crossing. However, this one you can count me out of!
Stan Lee, the genius behind Spiderman is unlikely to have ever thought that Spidey was actually Ukrainian!
The 26-year-old nutcase goes by the name “Mustang Wanted” and has gained popularity online for the amazing pictures of his daredevil antics. His mind-blowingly dangerous exploits have earned him the nickname the “real-life Spiderman”, a nickname that I think Mr. Lee would be proud be bestow himself.
The real-life Spidey is often seen hanging off building with one hand or balancing precariously atop the tinniest of ledges. All his exploits of are captured in perfect HD excellence that will ever immortalize his insanity.
Mustang Wanted is for me a complete head case, however I cannot deny his skill and ability to pick beautiful locations that transforms his insanity into something truly beautiful.
The humble trike was but a few years ago a simple kid’s toy, that was however until Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus got hold of it.
The days of it being a boring child’s toy are gone and all that remains is adrenaline pumping madness.
Although Travis Pastrana, FMX legend, and Nitro Circus have used their super trikes as insane flip and trick machines. The madmen in this clip use their trikes as drifting demons that seem to defy the laws of nature and drift across tarmac like its water.
The first thing that catches my eye? The complete nutcase not wearing any shoes as he flies down the complete unforgiving stretch of tarmac. One thing is for sure, it looks like a really good time and the pros in this clip make it look easy. Maybe I should start getting one of my own super trike together…
The first time a BMX rider landed the double backflip the triple has become lore within the action sports community. From helmet camera to multiple angles the feat was captured perfectly in all its brilliance.
If you thought that only rugby players came from New Zealand, Jed Mildon, extreme sports legend would want to have a word for you. The reason for his legend, two words, “Triple Backflip”!
Mildon stuck the landing perfectly after three perfectly executed backflips.
In a flash Mildon was through the ramp and if you blinked you would have missed those three perfectly executed backflips and only caught his perfectly stuck return to earth.
In the animation Up a grumpy old man uses hundreds of helium filled balloons to lift his house to a faraway destination. Well South African Matt Silver Vallance, 37 has taken up the mantel to raise money for the Nelson Mandela children’s hospital.
Vallance flew his helium balloon contraption from Robben Island, the prison that Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, to Cape Town. The stuntman wearing a wetsuit and custom made harness with 160 balloons attached to it, flew above shark-infested waters to complete the stunt.
The around 6km trip took around an hour and was not short of drama as Vallance’s rig went through a time of uncontrollable lift, during which he reached 1000 meters. Vallance used a combination of a sharp stick and BB gun to descend and regain control.
Hungarian acrobatic team FACE TEAM show off their skills:
The story behind this amazing team of acrobats started in 2003 when Áron Takács won the NIKE basketball freestyle battle. With a reputation and a little inspiration, Takács formed FACE TEAM and started to train tricks that nobody had ever attempted before.
What began as a team of basketball acrobats has morphed into taken in a variety of different sports and disciplines. This epic video was organised and shot by the ever epic, Devin Supertramp. The man himself seems to be behind just about all the epic adrenaline fuelled viral masterpieces on YouTube and I can’t wait for the next one.
The challenge: Skate down Kloof Street in Cape Town and set off the 60km/h speed camera.
Although unconfirmed it was rumoured that the skater got up to speeds of around 110km/h on the busy main road. The man in the video is high speed downhill skateboarder Decio Lourenco and we salute him for his balls of steel.
The video went viral almost immediately and caught the attention of local authorities who went on to charge Lourenco with negligent and reckless road behaviour. In addition, the poor guy in the chase car received a substantial fine for speeding.
The case against Lourenco was however dropped when it was ruled that the police could not use the video as evidence against the skater. Officially the ruling stated that the court was unable to determine whether or not the video had been tampered with.
The story goes that it all started when two girls’ realised that they had never been punched in the face before and that they would probably look good with black eyes. The video below is what followed:
Firstly, there is absolutely no mention of alcohol which means they were probably stone cold sober? Pain and the ability to stand pain seems to be a challenge too great for even most girls to pass up.
The gauntlet set down by the girls was however, not met as neither managed to sprout that infamous black eye. An update from the man behind the camera revealed that although there was initially some swelling the sought after black eyes never made an appearance.
Personally I have to give these girls some credit for taking the punches like a man, and dealing out some pretty decent right crosses. What do you think?
The place is Wagoner County, Oklahoma and the prank? Oh honey I’m pregnant!
Tori Wheeler decided to play an April Fools prank on her boyfriend by telling him she was pregnant. It seems that the creativity of April first pranks has been grossly reduced to something that only vaguely resembles a prank.
Needless to say, Wheeler was less than impressed with this sudden turn of events and proceeded to get a little upset. This should have been where it ended, but Wheeler wasn’t having any of that and decided to counter her boyfriend’s reaction by threatening him with a knife.
Let’s take a moment to let that sink in…
The situation then continued to escalate and although details following this point are few and far between, the net result was Wheeler’s boyfriend had his neck cute as well as being bitten twice.
The boyfriend is expected to make a full recovery and Wheeler? She has been arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
Devin Graham, aka Devin Super Tramp is not just an adrenaline junkie, he’s THE adrenaline junkie. His latest viral video, “World’s Largest Rope Swing” has amassed over 20,000,00 views on YouTube. This is one that you definitely need to have a look at…
Not only does he pull the 400-foot free fall off perfectly, but he manages to film it in perfect HD quality from every possible angle. This then is the perfect combination of an act of shear awesomeness/stupidity within the perfect YouTube framework. This video was a sure thing to go viral and it has not disappointed!
Although this is by far his most successful video, the Super Tramp has close to 200 million views on his YouTube channel. This however is not stupid people being stupid, this is professional adrenaline junkies performing amazing feats of extreme sport.
As for the “World’s Largest Rope Swing”? Sign me up, I’m ready to jump! What about you?
A friend of mine once said that YouTube is there for two things: videos of cats and for stupid people to document their stupidity.
The newest viral craze is “The Knife Game Song” and seems to be taking hold faster than the Harlem Shake! Note, the faint of heart may want to skip the video and move straight on.
The original video was uploaded by a Rusty Cage, who is also credited with writing the song and therefore as the creator and instigator of the viral “Knife Game Song”. The game involves a hand spread out on a wood surface while the participant tries to land the knife in between the outstretched fingers without hitting them, while singing the “Knife Game Song”. The lyrics of the song are as follows:
Oh, I have all my fingers, the knife goes chop chop chop!
If I miss the spaces in between, my fingers will come off,
and if I hit my fingers, the blood will soon come out!
But all the same, I play this game, cause that’s what it’s all about!
Oh, CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP
I’m picking up the speed and if I hit my fingers then my hand will start to bleed!
I can’t help but think that it is a challenge that needs attempting but my love of my fingers and fear of blood is sure to keep me away from this one. What do you think?
