What You Ought To Know About Extreme Sports And Its Types
Extreme Sports is a popular term for certain activities which have a high level of inherent danger. These activities are related to speed, heights, water, high physical exertion and special gear.
The reason why I decided to write on this topic because recently I did an extreme sport, which led me to do a little research and find out some information related to extreme sports which I am not aware of.
The following are the types of extreme sports :
1. Tandem Skydiving.
It is a type of skydiving.
Tandem Sky diving refers to a type of skydiving where a student skydiver is connected to a harness attached to a tandem instructor. The instructor guides the student through the whole jump from exit through free-fall, piloting the canopy, and landing. The student needs only minimal instruction before making a tandem jump with the instructor.
It is on a less dangerous side than a straight out parachuting.
2. Bungee Jumping.
Bungee Jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane. The thrill comes from the free-falling and the rebound.
This one is also less dangerous than the other extreme sports.
Skiing is an activity in which a person glides down the snow which has a slope.
Usually it not that fatal if done a smaller scale as in resorts or hotels which offer skiing facilities. But there is another one which is Extreme Skiing which is really dangerous and very few people in the world can do it. It is done on a long and steep slope.
Skiing does come under extreme sports though.
Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling. To successfully complete a climb, one must return to the base of the route safely.
Rock climbing is a bit dangerous as accidents have happened which have caused serious injuries.
5. White River Rafting.
White river rafting is an activity in which an inflatable raft is used to navigate a river. The members on the raft play a crucial role in navigation. It is a challenging activity and needs quick body movements and thinking. In the raft, there is person who acts as a guide in the river.
It is dangerous depending upon the degree of rapids and also on the roughness of the river.
These are the five extreme sports which if found are really interesting. But remember guys they are extreme sports, not meant for everyone.
It has a high risk and extremely dangerous in some cases.
It need a lot of courage to do any extreme sport. It is not for the weak hearts.
In life some times, there should be a thrill and extreme sports are very thrilling indeed.
