Sex is no barrier in flyboarding. Here’s Kristen Smoyer, a 33-year old professional flyboarder who was ranked 1st among women in North America and 3rd in the World.
Cliff Diving and Men’s Balls
The world record height for cliff diving is 192 feet. There are only about 30 professional cliff divers in the world.

When a Great Photographer Captures a Star Athlete
This is an image of Olympic Gold champion Tyler Clary. It was taken by world class photographer Adam Pretty.
If you are wondering how incredible images like these are shot, Nick Stubbs from All Things Photography explains: “Amazing photos like this one were more than likely a screen grab from video footage or a photo pulled from a Nikon D4 or similar shooting at 10 frames per second.” This isn’t as easy as it sounds,

Roller Coaster Stunts
This dude made special skates to keep him from going off the rails. He’s truly a man in search of an adrenaline rush. Wonder if he’s married.
Here’s a video from a few years ago with the Top Ten Insane Roller Coaster Stunts. Some are interesting, others not so much. Maybe if it had been the top five or six?
