Daredevil Shares POV Footage Of Him Fearlessly Skiing Through Forest

Daredevils are a special category of folk who love crossing the boundaries of what is considered extreme. They love going higher, deeper, faster, heavier, tougher, pushing their own limits in the process. We have a very deep respect for these people, both men and women who will stop next to nothing to achieve the thrill and we envy them for it. There are BASE jumpers, slackline walkers, people who ride unicycles along narrow girders of bridges. And then there are freeride skiers. The relatively young discipline already has a World Cup circuit, but many go down the natural, un-groomed terrains just for the view and the thrill. Just like Hugo Carraz does. The 27-year-old took his GoPro camera for his latest freeride down the slopes in La Clusaz on the Rhone-Alpes in France. The POV footage really is thrilling, watching him literally zoom between the thick forest and easily zapping between the trees, making us wince at ever turn. Just when we think he will slam himself in a tree trunk, he moves at the nick of time, giving us all the benefits of a freeride, without the unnecessary risk. Hugo doesn’t just wind between the woods. He likes to jump from several-feet-high cliffs and land with incredible precision. The views he provides us with are probably some we will never be able to see for ourselves, unless we decide to go hiking and it isn’t such a great idea in the winter. Not on the Alps, anyway.

Fearless Surfers Take On Extreme Waves At Maui's North Shore32s

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!

Skiing through the streets of the University of Denver

Once these guys saw the snow start to stick to the streets on the campus of the University of Denver, they knew they had to put something together. Although TJ isn't performing any tricks, it's important to note that skiing on blades is a little harder than it looks at 15-20 miles per hour!
