A lot of travellers use their journeys also to try new activities – they do bungee jumping in New Zeeland, canyoning in the Alps of Austria, skydiving in the USA or snowboarding in Canada. There are some pretty cool videos of people doing this on YouTube and Vimeo – this is my selection of the 7 best videos.
1) Best of 2011
Ok, it is an Ad for a camera but this collection is awesome and the clips are outstanding:
2) Experience Human Flight, Australia
Skydiving is on top of my list of action adventure things i want to do in the near future. The following video makes you also want to do that!
Sliding on a lake with your Sneakers on – how cool is that?

The feeling when doing this extreme Base Jumping must be awesome, but i would never do it ;)

“Sick!” This was the first thing that came up my mind when i saw this Documentation: crazy, breathtaking and thrilling!

6) Madrid Longboard, Spain
This is a pretty cool trend these days: take one of these long skateboards and discover your city in a different way:
