Most of the extreme sports are practiced individually, just a few are integrated by a group, which are called a team. Also, extreme sports are not taught in schools, as a regular sport. You will never see in High School a team of surfers or skydivers, it is extremely uncommon. Despite all these facts, people are wondering why young people are increasing the practice of extreme sports year by year.The answer is simple: the media, and this case, social media is the king of communication today. Years ago to practice kite jumping, bungee jump were for crazy and really risky people, nowadays, at least one time in your life, you have to do it, and, of course, we have the ones who are practicing as a regular professional sport.
Social Media is changing the way we are appreciating life. You live in a constant informational exchange, where you are seeing how others live their lives, and what people do around the world, you discover there is more than your traditional activities and motivates you, even we can say it forces you to expand your mind and try new experiences in your life. We learn through social media what we are capable of, you can see a five years old child surfing or a woman climbing Everest, social media breaks all mental barriers and beliefs about gender, age, and style of life.
The impossible became possible, nowadays is not crazy at all to think about traveling the world, about doing a real risky activity, like climbing the highest mountain or flying a helicopter, experiences unimaginable for regular people years ago. This modern era is pushing you through this path, to connect with people around the globe to empower and help each other to get out of the comfort zone. Now the phrase it’s risky means do it.
