10 Extreme Sports that are not for the Faint Hearted
Sports is something which almost all of us have done at some point in our lives. The enjoyment, thrill and excitement that we feel from different sports activities is what inspires us to keep doing a sport. The adrenaline rush given by many sports activities is quite addictive. Usually people tend to play sports like Football, Rugby, Tennis, Cricket, Baseball, Basketball etc.
But there are few people who take it to a whole new level and do some of the most daring sports possible. These adrenaline junkies put their lives at stake to feel the ultimate excitement and ultimate adrenaline rush.
Following are 10 extreme sports that are not for the faint hearted:
10 – Scuba Diving:
Scuba diving is number 10 on our list of extreme sports that are not for the faint heated. Of course it is wonderful to explore the underwater world, but is filled with many dangers. For instance, if the diver ascends too fast to reach the surface, it can lead to a life threatening condition called the “Decompression Sickness.” Then there is always a chance of getting attacked by a dangerous underwater animal like a shark or a stingray.
9 – Storm Chasing:
Whenever there is a warning of some kind of storm, people tend to leave the area for the safety concerns. But the storm chasers do the opposite. They tend to chase the storm for the sake of adventure and excitement. You can only imagine the kind of dangers this extreme hobby/sports presents.
8 – Wing Walking:
Wing walking provides extreme adrenaline rush for the adrenaline junkies. It surely sounds insane to be strapped to the wing of a plane in the high skies at speeds reaching 130mph.
