It can be a dangerous sport and knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialized climbing equipment is crucial for the safe completion of routes. Because of the wide range and variety of rock formations around the world, rock climbing has been separated into several different styles and sub-disciplines. While not an Olympic event, rock climbing is recognized by the Inter
This adventure activity was invented by Dwayne van der Sluis and Andrew Akers in New Zealand in 1995 as something exciting for tourists to do once they became jaded with bungee jumping. They created the term Zorb for the ball, presumably a variation on orb, which they trademarked and which they used for the name of their company. Variations are becoming known, such as hydro-zorbing, in which you are drenched in soapy water on the way down (the nearest thing in existence to a human washing machine), and harness zorbing, in which two people are s
Skateboarding on ramps involves the use of a number of different skills than those usually used for normal flatland skateboarding. Riders must also get used to the different sensation of traveling up and down steep transitions, which can at first seem unusual and intimidating.
Ramp Skills

1. Become accustomed to the feel of ramps. Place your board pointing toward the smallest ramp face you can find. Skate toward it with moderate speed and travel up the face. Feel the way your board reacts to the sloping surface, and bend your kn

Here are a few things you might not have known about the history of sledding; many of these facts came from Brice J. Hoskin’s The Sled Book: Notes Concerning Winter’s Favorite Pastime.

1. The word toboggan comes from either the Algonquin word odabaggan or the Anishinabe word nobugidaban.
2. The Inuit made their toboggans out of whalebone, while other tribes used birch or tamarack. The sleds had a curved front, to ease traveling over difficult terrain, but had no runners. The design has changed little sin
World's Coolest Helicopter Rides
1. Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The world’s largest barrier reef extends 1,600 miles along the Coral Sea off Australia’s northeast coast. It nurtures diverse marine life—and even the occasional romance.

2. Grand Canyon, AZ
You’ve peered into the Grand Canyon from the South Rim, you’ve traipsed down its vertiginous sides on a mule, you’ve even gingerly ventured out onto the cantilevered glass Grand Canyon Skywalk. But you haven’t truly appreciated “one of the great sigh
Trip of a Lifetime: Rafting the Grand Canyon
Most visitors to the Grand Canyon are lucky if they even get to glimpse a sliver of the Colorado River during their whirlwind three-hour tour of the South Rim. However, putting yourself at the mercy of the river and exploring the canyon's depths from aboard a raft is an entirely different, and otherworldly, experience. So even if you've already checked the Grand Canyon off your must-see list, consider taking a plunge a mile beneath the rim. No other rafting trip combines so many days of stagger

NASCAR is a household name. The sport has gained tremendous popularity in recent history, making its drivers as famous as any other category of professional athlete. But how can they go so fast? It's not just the driving. It has something to do with the car, too -- the stock car.

Originally, stock car was a very literal name. It was an automobile that had not been altered or re-configured from its original factory build. This differed from other race cars that were modified and customized for specific performance capabilities.
