Thread: Extreme Sports and Hobbies Anyone ?

  1. #1

    Default Extreme Sports and Hobbies Anyone ?

    Hi guys
    Well it does seem like we have a varied group of users on here

    Well I am an avid climber and I swim I know we have a few Divers on the site and well I was wondering if there are any other adventurous types on here

    If there are we can arrange a meet up of sorts .

    I am seriously looking into Wing Suit base jumping and well am wondering if any of you take part in that or any thing else that is out there ?

    So how bout it whats your Poison ?

    I surf almost everyday. Actually had a rough session yesterday in some heavy conditions and my back feels completely screwed today. Im hoping a mellow lunch surf at the beach break will sort it out. doctors orders

    Wing Suiting looks like the most incredible thing to do. I imagine after doing that you'd feel like the boss of all boss's!

    Wing suit base jumping sounds awesome BUT you need some hectic preperation before you can qualify for it unfortunately ... a quick google search brought me to this article http://gear.getaway.co.za/apparel/wingsuit/

    In South Africa you need to have a minimum of 300 jumps within two years under your belt before you can qualify to do a wingsuit.


    A tree never hits an automobile except in self-defence.

    This is awesome:



    Except the same dude flew into table mountain when he tried jumping off there.

    Africa is not for Sissies

    I used to do a bit of climbing but never got into it a lot.

    Im a MTB cyclist pic below of the race i did last weekend. Was a sweet ride but heat was heavy.

    Thanks for the videos it was crazy to watch them and the speed he flies, you wouldn't catch me doing anything with heights unless I am in a aeroplane .

    Did he get hurt badly when he crashed or was it minor?
