These are the people you see throwing themselves out of planes, tearing down ski-slopes at face melting speeds or scaling enormous cliff faces with little in the way of safety gear to protect them. They're adrenaline junkies, and while what they do can be seen as insanely risky, it also looks like some of the most life affirming fun that anybody could ever have. While extreme sports have come to the forefront in recent years, a large percentage of them remain on the fringe of people's knowledge. Beyond your run of the mill skydiving, BASE jumping and free climbing, there is an entirely different level of extreme. Sports that, given one minuscule slip-up, could instantly cost you an arm, a leg or your life. Sports that pretty much require you to have a constant death wish, or at least a strong desire to be maimed or injured horribly before you start. These sports cater to the most hardcore, the most intense and the most insane thrill seekers worldwide, and this video is here to take you through 10 of them.
