  6. 6. EXTREME SPORTSExtreme sports are activities, which has high level of risk and danger. These sports are usuallyrelated to speed, height, adrenaline, amazing stunts or even death.People practise these sports train a lot to be able to not get injured. Also to practise most ofextreme sports are needed specialized gear.This term first appear on 1950s. Ernest Hemingway said once: "There are only three sports:bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games."The first sports as extreme sports, are skateboard, based on roller skate from 18th century andski, this one is really old, the it first appear on a painting on primitive carvings in Norway, from5000 B.C..Nowadays, some extreme sports, have become Olympic trials. This is the case of Ski,snowboard, mountain bike and lately BMX, there is not any other extreme sport which hadbeen Olympic before.Extreme sports such as bike downhill are driven on the mountain hills, as ski, snowboard orclimbing, others as surf, windsurf, kite surf or sailing are practised on the sea, or also on rivers.But other extreme sports, I consider more dangerous, begin their travel on the air or space.Some of the most extreme sports are water extreme sports, personally, these are the ones Imost like, I have practised some of them, and they are exciting, especially in summer. I havebeen sailing just the whole year, but last years summer, I tried wakeboard, and it is amazing.Previously I had tried skating and surfing but wake is awesome. You go pulled by a boat, andyour feet are hooked on a board. What I most like was that I could do extreme stunts. Firstly, Icould leave from the water as I had to keep my balance, but then it was easy. Everything wasgoing well until I fell on the cold water. Now I am excited so this summer Im going to dowakeboard again.Mountain extreme sports are done at the hill. We can also practise beautiful extreme sports askayak(down the river), snowboard and skiing. On summer holidays, I usually take my bike withme and I meet with my friend to go over a mountain or to make some routes.Air and Space extreme sports. Well, not everybody is able to make this matter, I thinkprofessionals practise this really extreme sports have born to fly, this is the case of FelixBaumgartner. This man made the highest base jump, from the space. He flied for 120.000 ft..and reached speeds of 580 km/h. He is already working on a new project, well see.To finish, I think it´s not safe to practise extreme sports without having learned somethingabout them, or without anybody to show you how to do it. Then if you knew the method, youwould be able to practise it, but there are still extreme and consequently dangerous, in thepast I have practised some of them, and if you fall from the main thing, or you have anaccident, you will probably hurt yourself, so be careful! 6
