When you first see where skier Aymar Navarro is trying to go, it doesn’t quite register in your brain. Like, no, it couldn’t be there. And then you look at the inevitability of his ski line at Cerro Torrecillas in the Andes and you’re like holy crap, he’s really going for it. It’s like he’s skiing into a funnel, that narrow gap in the ridge is his only way out. Which is both frightening and exhilarating to see because it happens so damn fast.
Every so often you come across a story of an ordinary person, or couple, who accomplished an extraordinary financial makeover. In what seems like record time, they’ve knocked out big debts or saved enough to retire early or to take a year off to travel the world.
It’s already hard enough to just go mountain biking where there are no trails. It’s already hard enough to just walk on a slackline suspended in the air. So naturally, it makes perfect sense to go mountain biking on a slackline. Wait. What? That’s what Kenny Belaey did. He rode his bike on a slackline over a 367-foot drop in the French Alps.
The big surprise in this legitimately bonkers biking video is that there is absolutely no surprise in what happens. You see everything happen before it happens even though you’re in disbelief as it is about to happen and question if this could really happen. I mean, the bike rider, Primož Ravnik, rides straight down the wall of a 200-foot dam and smacks himself right into the water as if it is a completely natural thing to do.
This just doesn’t seem possible. Even after watching Jed Mildon nail the world’s first ever BMW quadruple backflip, it doesn’t seem like it could happen in real life here on Earth. And that’s pretty much true! The video below shows the bad falls and crashes and body slamming it took to get this stunt down and it’s a miracle he was able to pull it off.
If there is no snow to snowboard it only makes sense to hook yourself onto a helicopter and take your snowboarding to the clouds. Watch as stuntman Wildman Adrian Cenni carves on clouds 6,000 feet in the air while the helicopter flings him around at 80mph. It looks so sick. Like a human Silver Surfer or something.
R Willy, the crazy scooter-er in this stunt, looks like he’s flipping an infinite amount of times but it’s actually just a triple backflip. Oh and it just so happens to be the first triple backflip on a scooter ever. I’ve watched the clip multiple times over and have gasped every time it seems like he’s just about to miss but actually ends up sticking the landing.
