Extreme sports in a city: 5 ways to get rid of the blues
The urban population embraced apathy: according to VTsIOM more than 40% of Russians are not satisfied with how the their leisure. Typical urban entertainment like going to the cinema and other entertainment facilities have become commonplace. It is therefore actively developing new extreme sports and hobbies, which are inextricably linked to the high-rise buildings, sidewalks and other realities of the cities. The most "sharp" - in our regular collection.
1. Jolie jumping (Jolly Jumping)
No, not jumping Angelina Jolie, although it could also be an interesting spectacle. We are talking about a special device similar to a kangaroo legs that allow you to lift off the ground a few meters into the air and move at speeds up to 40 km / h. Of course, simple jumps here not escape, the more interesting trick and the impenetrable barrier (bench, border, fountain, or even a car), the spectacular Jolie jumping and captured video.
2. Rope Jumping (Rope Jumping)
from related BASE jumping this kind of extreme different rope tension or rope. It uses a climbing rope, which is quite elastic. Therefore, the main feature stunt - to calculate the flight path and the length of the rope itself to reach the pendulum effect. Especially important is the accurate calculation in urban environments, where the proximity of the buildings can not play into the hands, and even lead to a tragic outcome.
3. Roofing (Roofing)
In other words - it's urban climbing. Conquer skyscrapers, spire of the Admiralty, the highest bell tower - this is extreme, and romance. One needs only to imagine what kind of open to new peaks. Extreme Roofing involves not only the admiration of beauty, but also perform complex tricks on the ball. However, in many countries, climbing on the roofs of the authorities is not too discouraged, so it is better to pre-gain official permission to conquer the urban nodes.
4. Urban trial
Performing tricks on a motorcycle or bicycle few people are surprised. But urban trial - using natural urban obstacles (stairs, railings, curbs, drains, etc...) - may be a novelty. Especially if there is anything in the narrow European streets with steep slopes. The main thing - the right to capture what is happening, what is called, in the first person, then the most extreme form will just rolls.
This video was filmed on American extreme chamber iON Air Pro Wi-Fi, which because of its cylindrical shape has excellent aerodynamics (unlike the popular "square" GoPro). In addition, with the camera - full set of accessories: mounting on different surfaces, the necessary cables and even a mini-tripod. In the case of the same GoPro at similar prices (about 10 thousand rubles), it all had to be bought separately, and would cost more in the 7-8 thousand rubles. In addition, video from iON Air Pro Wi-Fi conveniently broadcast network - presence effect reaches a peak.
This kind of extreme sports is much more secure than all of the above. The bottom line is simple assignments, which are distributed to all participants (which, of course, be more than one). It may be asked to take a picture in the "Lexus" half-naked, to find and take just three owners of red beard, noting at the bottom of a body of water (pool) and so on. N. The more accurate the job done, the more points received by the participant. Risk is usually minimal, but the emotions and images in memory - more than enough.
All these urban hobbies available in many Russian cities. So the way to get rid of sadness and depression have enough - just enough to choose an extreme liking.
