    This is the giant slip and slide launch ramp built at the Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp in Butler, Ohio. The ramp is usually used to practice ski jumping into the pool below but now they've added slip n' slides for people with less Olympic ambition. It looks like fun. Fun, ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a guy taking to the skies while riding a 'Raptor Blaster' (OMG I love blasting raptors!) kite tube being towed behind a Waverunner. That looks like fun. Except I want to be on like, 800-feet of tow-rope so I can REALLY soar. I want my head in the clo... / Continue →

    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    I posted the Flyboard back in 2011 when the company first came on the scene, but now they're back with a fancy commercial. This is that commercial. And it's set to one of the most questionable songs I've heard in recent history and that's saying a lot because my little sister... / Continue →

    Because everybody has to die somehow (so why not make it on your own terms?) this is a video of a bunch of hooligans using a bungee cord attached to a boat to pull them down a hill and over a ramp into a lake while riding an inner-tube. It actually looks pretty fun. Well, min... / Continue →

    Because this is the world we live in, Grant Engler and Amanda Volf got married over the weekend on a beach and left the ceremony with a pair of water jetpacks. Personally, I think Grant should have been carrying his new bride, but that's just me and I'm the most romantic man i... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to be pulled underwater behind a slow-moving boat? I know, it's pretty low on my bucket list too. There, but low. Enter the Subwing, the latest in extreme watersports technology that allows you to do barrel rolls and...that's pretty much it, all while holding you... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →

    I know, the screencaps I so lovingly slapped together wound up looking like shit and offer little to no explanation of what's going on. That was my bad. Basically, photographers took a whole bunch of cameras, mounted them on a long horizontal platform, then had them all snap ... / Continue →

    You might have won this round, but as soon as I figure out how to disguise a horse as a human and train it to not shit while we make our way through the queue line then IT. IS. ON. That's right, I'm going for the polo. No, no I'm not. But I will eat six hotdogs and try to v... / Continue →
