"It's that adrenaline rush, I think, that comes with extreme sports. For me it's all about the passion of sport and the goodwill that sport creates." Robby Naish, windsurfer and kitesurfer. From the rush of skateboarding to some of the most ultimate extreme sports like base jumping and ice climbing, there's so much to know about the world of extreme sports. The Olympics and the X-Games have opened our eyes to so much, but there's still so much to see. Do you want to learn more about aggressive inline skating? Do you want to read up on how to protect yourself next time you go sandboarding? If you feel the rush of adrenaline every time you think about riding that big wave, or taking that half-pipe by storm - this book is definitely for you!
The tricks, the flips, and the (sometimes) injuries! Here's everything boys want to know about extreme sports.
