There is a new passion for young seekers of adrenaline, the urban extreme sports, this passionate and really risky practice got famous a few years ago and followers are growing fast. It was born because of skaters and bikes players who were considered the first urban sport. These practitioners love to climb, to jump and ascend in all ways. You need to be really young and have a good physical condition because of all extreme sports, this is the extremist one. People feel an energy discharge that explores the limits of the body and challenge the use of public buildings. It is almost like a life philosophy where streets, terraces, and walls are your field.
The four most extreme urban sports practiced are
- climbing walls
- building jumping and
- High Wire
You won’t believe the practice of parkour despite being considered an act of vandalism because sometimes it is necessary to trespass the private property to be able to do the exercise, this sport was founded on a military training. This train includes climbing, jumping, running, balancing.
The artificial climbing wall is about finding walls of buildings that have certain characteristics to be climbed, such as terraces and balconies. Many of the practitioners of this trend are seen like spider males. Building jumping is similar, but you walk the building from top to bottom.
The last one, high wire, also named urban slacklining is practiced outdoors in places such as a square, a park, or even you can place the rope between two buildings. There is a tendency that is called timelining is about to place the rope very high and try to stay in the same place in the rope as long as possible.
The world of extreme sports is evolving into a lot of trends. We believe year by year fanatics of this type of practice will create new ways and form of using the streets. Also with the hand of technology, we would expand our capacity of exploring the world.
