  1. I think there are a couple of extreme sports that are left out of this list that I do.

    Tournament Paintball (i.e. speedball)
    Surfing
    Whitewater rafting

    1. They do include white water rafting and the include different kinds of surfing.
      Also, paint balling is hardly a sport, let alone an extreme sport. It’s just stupid.
      Plus, nobody cares what kind of sports you do… ? So why did you even comment?

      1. Actually, it sort of IS considered a sport! It is pretty extreme… If nobody cares about what @Erik does, then nobody cares about what YOU do!

    2. I haven’t seen people die from paintball but I know that the field regulations are very strict… that is probably the reason why no deaths are reported … you want to try playing paintball without a mask?

        or swimming with concrete shoes…

        you can make any sport extreme with the wrong gear!

    3. If you don’t think that free running is an extreme sport then you’re pretty stupid, and you’ve obviously never seen parkour/free running. So know what you’re talking about before you say anything.

    4. What if you got a paintball shot down your throat? I’ve heard of that happening before. That could kill you šŸ˜

  2. ok chris clearly you have never seen anybody freerunning because a lot of the moves they pull off are really dangeros if you mess up and it requires a lot of stamina and physical strength.
    On another note although paint ball is fun as hell i do agree with you that its not really an “extreme” sport.

    1. try playing pro paintball … need physical strength … stamina … lots of training … and like I said try playing paintball without a mask and see what happens …that’s why field regulations are so strict

      1. yes yeesss, thats true genltemen, it requires allot of skill and allot of strenght, just becuse your shooting a “gun” does not mean piantball is a bad sport or you dont do exercise, paintball is hard and takes allot of years to master and i recommend everyone to try it youll like it

  4. I do free running and im 15 years old. My biggest jump ever was off of a 10 story flat onto a 9 story flat about 12ft away. Believe me it is extreme the adrenaline you get is unbelievable.

    1. i do parkour in london with PARKOUR GENERATIONS and yes it is an extreme sport of sorts but also more than that- its a way of life!
      yes you train to push your body to the outer limits of what you can do and can make the big jumps ect … but real parkour is about making your body into the best form it can be both phisicly and mentily so that you can overcome any problems that get in your way, this is why we see our suroundings as a playground walls as floors and gaps to be filled with movement that is true PARKOUR.

  5. jacob, freerunning and parkpur are really quite different and what kind of extreme sport is scoortering no offence?!!!????

    1. Not only are you wrong, since you can do both canoeing aswell as kayaking, you also can not spell. Get some education and learn some facts then we will continue this discussion.

      On another note paintball is quite dangerous when you do not wear a mask, but it is not an extreme sport. Case closed.

      Suit up & be legendary!

  8. Ok what about Dirtsufer its an extreme sport. I mean when was the last time your 4 wheeled skate board hit 130+ kmh. Check out youtube and look up dirtsurfer..

  9. I have to say I’ve done most of the things up here and paintball and airsoft have no business being on this list. Those two are about as extreme as crosscountry skiing. Sure you can say “come play me”, and I’d be happy to. Then after you beat me, and I walk away, alive, with maybe a couple quarter sized bruses, I will hook you up to a kite. If you dont drown, get dragged up the beach, knock yourself unconsious or kill yourself, you will understand what an extreme sport is. Lets face it, anyone can play paint ball and airsoft.

    1. It actually hurts to read all these comments. Just because you are not likely to DIE from doing a sport does not make it un extream. Just the fact that you would do a sport that you will probably die doing makes you just insane. And extream sport is a sport that gets your adreniline pumping more then a average sport and requires alot of phyical and mental exersion. If an extream sport was a chance that you would die. Then jumping off the roof of your house headfirst would be considered an extream sport. Idiots.

  12. Paintball is too an extreme sport! If “Scootering” can be considered extreme, then so can Paintball. People who are commenting against paintball have obviously never played a legit game of paintball.

    1. You people are fucking idiots. Paintball is just shooting bullets at people with rules. you’ll never understand what’s an EXTREME sport. An Extreme sport is dangerous and require lots of skills. You don’t need any balls to play paintball. just get shot and nothing really serious would happen. Skateboarding can break your body parts, and so can parkour. Parkour is running fast, jumping far and high, flipping, and lots more. Sky Diving is extreme too, and if you don’t get why, you a fucking retarded idiot.

    2. Scootering is a sport because just like skateboarding, you have to use your core body strength to do the tricks. In Paintball, you run and shoot people. There’s absolutely no “sport” in Paintball, the most you do is run & jump over obstacles. You may as well add Hunting, BB Gun fighting, Knife-throwing and Baseball to the list if you’re going to add Paintball.

  18. Paint balling isn’t running around in the forest hitting each other with paint balls, that’s not even a sport. We are talking about speedball. This is with guns that are shooting 30 bps. The game should not be called an extreme sport because there’s scary guns shooting at you, but because your using every last bit of energy running around the field and snake diving, screaming callouts to your teamates. The amount of strength it takes mphysically and mentally is why it is extreme. Check out speedball videos on Youtube before you post another comment about paintball not being an extreme sport…

  19. Extreme sports and adventure sports DO NOT have a winner, unless you are taking part in a championship. It is a complete sport in itself and doesn’t rely on results or outcomes, therefore paintball is not an extreme sport.
    Parkour vs free running:
    Parkour is the fastest way of getting from point A to B, I.e. Displacement, I.e. As the crow flies.
    Free running is how you cover the distance, the style, and expression of your body, mostly stunts actually.

  20. paintball is definetly an extreme sport, sure you may not risk dying but being out there on a field half the size of a football field playing 7 vs.7 with guns shooting 15-20 paintballs a second, feels pretty extreme to me. until youve played tournament paintball dont call it out of the list.

  22. paintball is not an extreme sport. it is suuuuper fun, but how often do people die/ break bones while playing paintball? unless you are extremely unlucky, you wont get anything more than a few bruses. free running isnt. you have to run up walls, run across walls, jump over walls and land on poles using only your hands, do flips. free running is as extreme as you chose to make it.
