Do you feel bored when someone offers bungee jumping or parachuting? We do too! Indeed, real daredevils have already explored some new adventure activities you have hardly come across. Here are five crazy things to try on one of your next vacations.
Surfing is so trite, right? Ok, then how about trying jet surfing? Nowadays, surfboards are motorized allowing for an exciting speedy ride. We mean you can pick up speed up to 58 km per hour, which lets you sweep by any dangerous sea creatures – like sharks for example. This new boardsport has already hit North America and many European countries.
Well, skiing is old as Adam, and those ski boots aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world, to say the least. Then how about skiing while sitting? This is what ski bikes are made for. They combine the fun of skiing and snowboarding and the handling of mountain biking, and are used for moving downhill at a fast pace. Try this way of conquering slopes – you don’t have to purchase your own snow bike as many resorts offer them for rent. Winter is getting more fun!

Did you know you can fly? Equipped with a water-powered mechanism that is strapped to your back and uses water force to take you up into the air these machines operate in a body of water. Their flow rate is manageable and they let you reach heights of up to 15 meters.
Flowriding also known as flowboarding has combined surfing, snow/skate/body/skim/wake-boarding and involves a special installation that produces artificial waves over an elastic cloth surface. The water layer is just 5 cm thick, but the water flow speed is about 50 km per hour, and the waves don’t move forward, which allows surfers balance almost in place performing jumps and twists.
A true sailor at heart doesn’t give up just because it’s winter. He starts ice sailing instead. This extreme sport is popular in the USA, Canada, Austria, Germany, UK, and of course the Nordic countries. It implies an iceboat with a design similar to a sailboat, but equipped with skis or skates allowing it to glide along ice. Don’t forget to put on some warm clothes because the wind blows hard at 80 km per hour.
