  • Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com Extreme Sports are also popularly known as adventure sports. Usually, these sports refer to some activities that involve a lot of physical strength, are unconventional and come with high levels of health risks. An object of attraction to a substantial percentage of youths all over the world, these type of sports do not require players to play against each other to survive and win but to fight against nature, or extreme natural conditions. Though the evaluation of players in these sports is done on the basis of their performances, other subjective criteria also play a major role in the judging process of each player’s Sport Scores.Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com MysticBoard.com © 2005 – 2009.

  • Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com How Extreme Sports Came Into Being According to researchers, Extreme Sports emerged as a reaction to the extra-safe lifestyle of modern times. Another contributor to the birth of these sports is the cutting edge technology of today. But the biggest contributor to the rise of Extreme Sports is perhaps the entertainment industry with extreme stunts shown in every other film. People love to take risks because it gives them an adrenaline rush unlike any other and at the end of the day, it brings pleasure and adds spice to their mundane lives. The modern face of these sports originated from the 1970’s popular Polynesian activity, known today as ‘surfing’. Most of the adventure games that we see today have evolved from surfing such as Skateboarding or Wind Sailing. Types of Extreme Sports  Skateboarding: Known to be a game for boys, skateboarding involves a player to ride a skateboard and perform tricks while staying on it. A trickier version of it is named Swingboarding.  Trickblade: This game involves a special kind of roller blades with thick wheels and wide boots and grind plate. However, the tricks played in this game are quite similar to those of skateboarding.Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com MysticBoard.com © 2005 – 2009.

  • Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com What Drives People to Play Extreme Sports The craze for Extreme Sports is undeniable and to a great extent, it is hard to defy. What draws so many people, especially youngsters to these highly risky games is the sheer thrill of something out of the ordinary. For them, the fun aspect of the adventures is just irresistible. Not to mention the chance to visit exotic places and make new connections with like-minded people from around the world. It is this same aspect that has drawn people to create Sport Forum. Other reasons include the chance to achieve a tremendously fit body and become the star of the neighborhood. What Equipments Are Required Being equipped with the right apparatus is imperative for surviving in Extreme Sports. Always take the necessary equipments and medications. Although the gear differs from one sport to another, the common and must- have equipments include protective helmet, protective shoes, knee pads, elbow pads, goggles, protective clothing (varies from sport to sport) that come with a lot of pockets for storage, and gloves. Safety Measures For Participants Life-threatening injuries are not uncommon in Extreme Sports and if you are not properly geared up, they will become impossible to prevent. Remember, there’s no room for mistakes and disregard in adventure games because you will always be exposed to extreme levels of risk. Concentration plays a key part here not only on your Sports Scores but also on your safety. Keep your focus on your moves rather than what other people are doing. A slight change in any part of your body including your breathing, can affect your performance and turn out to be dangerous for your life. If you are a teenager, take your parents to your practice sessions and always work with a coach. Having a coach is enormously important for young adults as well. Keep in mind the fact that buying the newest skateboard or surfboard or wheels is important for your performance but it is even more important to buy the latest safety gear for your survival. And never take medications without a doctor’s approval.Written by Suranjana Banerjee of MysticBoard.com ~ Visit http://www.MysticSportsline.com MysticBoard.com © 2005 – 2009. All Rights Reserved.
