Here are five very highspeed, super dangerous and illegal sports… Enjoy!
S – Train Surfing
Train surfing involves riders “surfing” on the outside of a moving train. In England a teenager has died after he hit a bridge, something similar happened in Denmark and in Germany an 18 year old guy almost got killed by an 150000 volt electric shock. At the moment he is still in critical condition.
Train surfing is illegal and in Germany you can be fined up to 50’000 Euro if caught of course…
Elevator surfing typically occurs in skyscrapers with groups of elevators.
Elevator surfing is illegal and very dangerous. Several people have died elevator surfing. Surfers can be crushed between the elevator and the top, sides, or bottom of the shaft, be struck by the counterweight, or simply slip or be knocked off and fall to their deaths.
Street luge originally comes from California where some skateboarders raced oneanother lying down on their skateboards. They raced down hills in the middle of traffic which made it even more risky.In 1975 the first professional race was held also in California.
Now highly modified skateboards are used to race down a hill at speeds up to 80 miles (128 kms) per hour. There are now special luges and equipment for the sport which make it much safer. But you’re still hitting pavement when you crash. Ouch….
BASE jumping is an extreme sport in which a person parachutes from a fixed object. BASE is an acronym for Buildings, Antennas, Spans, and Earth – referring to the objects that provide the jump platform.
While BASE jumping itself is not illegal, the nature of accessing objects usually makes it a necessity to trespass on an object. Jumpers who are caught can expect to be charged with trespassing, as well as having charges like breaking and entering, reckless endangerment, vandalism, or other such charges pressed against them.
It is an extremely dangerous sport and the base jumpers even have their own fatality list.
Street racing is illegal motor racing which takes place on public roads. Street racing can either be spontaneous or well-planned and coordinated. The cars are often modified and show the racers special taste.
Street racing has inspired a few movies (The Fast and the Furious, Too Fast, Too Furious and Tokyo Drift) And a huge list of PC and Video games.
