Fearless Surfers Take On Extreme Waves At Maui's North Shore

How are your surfing skills? Check out this incredible group of surfers off the Maui coast in Hawaii. It's amazing how they're able to navigate through one another. Have you ever taken on waves that big before? Actually, watching big wave surfing is a leisure activity up on Maui. In ancient Hawaii, surfing was an activity reserved for kings and nobility. Not much has changed today, as those who decide to take on Maui's largest waves are also considered a kind of island royalty. The second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands is proving grounds for the global surfing fraternity - if you can handle the extra-large waves here, you can take them on anywhere. If you ever find yourself in Hawaii, there are some spots that you might want to consider. Try Peahi beach, know to big wave surfers and professional watermen as the ‘Holy Grail of surfing’. The largest swells are from October to early April, the biggest reaching up to 70 feet! Ho‘okipa Lookout is your next best thing if you can’t devote a large portion of your day to Peahi. The waves may become unrideable when they exceed 20 feet in height, although some windsurfers have been known to take them on. Whenever the world-class wave, known as “Da Bay” is breaking, the surfing community is buzzing. Da Bay is legendary among surfers and can be packed, so the best viewpoint, if you are not into riding, is upon Lipoa Point in Honolua Bay. If, however, you are unable to reach the Aloha state, then we highly suggest you go to Portugal. Don’t believe us? Check out how this surfer rides one monstrous wave off the coast of this country. With waves known to hit a staggering 115 feet in height, who could resist them? This surfer sure couldn’t!

Daring Longboarder Speeds Down Mountainside Hill At 70Mph

For all you adrenaline junkies out there, being normal isn't exactly the most appealing thing. You guys jump out of planes instead of flying in them, you partake in extreme sports, and in this case, some ride longboards at speeds faster than a typical car instead of just riding it around town. With the need to always step up the intensity, the rush of adrenaline is well worth it. Here we have a speeding longboarder doing what most people in the world would probably be afraid to do. Watch as longboarder and Boulder native Zak Maytum races down one of the fastest runs in Colorado! He is a professional downhill skateboard racer, owner of Venom Skate Products and world's foremost aero helmet collector and enthusiast. With speeds approaching 70mph, the footage will definitely leave your palms sweaty. It is called a Raw Run, recognized colloquially within the longboarding community as a recorded video showcasing the entire descent down the hill, from top to bottom. This is typically done all in one take, to showcase the rider's consistency and skill and Zak lacks neither! With both feet planted firmly on his board, Zak zooms past trees and properties; if you blink, you will miss it! When the 23-year-old balances himself on those nasty turns, the plates on his palms throw sparks behind them! Have you ever seen anything this intense? Let us know in the comment section.

Woman's Zip Line Experience Doesn't Exactly Go As Planned1m34s

Woman's Zip Line Experience Doesn't Exactly Go As Planned

When it comes to zip lining it can be a bit scary and there's always the small chance that something may go wrong. This lady proves it - and it's hilarious! The woman went with her kids to a zip line for some adventure time, but the adrenaline and the exhilaration made her forget the crash course they give you at the start. So as soon as she approaches the end of the line, the spring pad, which is an emergency arrest device approved by the The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) for every rider’s ultimate safety. That all would have been great, if the woman’s speed under her weight didn’t press the spring pad to the max. And you know what happens when a spring get pressed all the way down - it has to come right back up, sending the woman back up the line! The only problem here is the line goes up and the spring doesn’t have enough force to return the rider to the beginning of the line. So now she is stranded in the middle of it. And it is a looong way down from there. Both her kids and the instructors keep yelling at her to grab the line in order to drag herself back down. Our guess is she will never get on that thing again! Thanks for the laughs, Penny!

Bicyclist screams down mountain road at insane speed

Jackass Mountain is a famous peak on Highway 1 in British Columbia. It is known for the steep plunge that leads down from the road to the river below. During the construction of the road, a team of mules that were pulling a cart full of rocks and debris lost their footing and fell to their death below. The peak was aptly named Jackass Mountain after this tragic mishap. One of the steepest and longest descents on the whole highway, this stretch of road took Dave almost half an hour to climb and only three minutes to come down. Riding a 20 speed carbon fiber road bike with wheels the width of your thumb, this cyclist goes into a tuck and leans out over the handlebars to reduce wind resistance. The gorgeous scenery whips by, along with oncoming cars and even a pedestrian as he makes his way down. During the entire descent, not a single car passes because he is travelling at almost the speed limit. What an insane experience. Remember, do not try this at home. Check out this bike going down a road at an insane speed.
