We can see through diverse products launched in the past years. There is a lot of:
- technology and
- diverse creations supporting extreme sports.
Comparing to the general world of sports, you can appreciate that there is a lot of investment in extreme sports. Just by seeing the X- Games event on TV, you can see every day there are more new extreme sports and also the old ones are evolving, thanks to technology again.
The first thing to notice, there is a big market of cameras, the filming and photo industry is supporting this type of sport. Thanks to the enormous quantity of pictures and videos of diverse media, like TV, magazines, webpages and, of course, social media. People nowadays wants to get involve or even practice one of this sport. Just a few years ago to have a camera which can be inside water was a big deal, now that’s totally obsolete, now you can dive into the water with special dispositive that can make an HD video and also with a microphone and listen to everything beneath the water.
Extreme sports need to improve quickly because it needs to compete with regular old sports like soccer, baseball, etc., which are not considered a sport, they are part of the culture. Also, extreme sports depend on the weather condition, if the mountain is not full of snow or if there is no wave in the sea, the competence might be suspended. People who develop this industry need to create ways to compensate the external factors like the weather. Another reason is that people who practice any kind of extreme sports are really risky and wild people, who believe are more special than the rest of the people of the world, that there are no limits, that they should not conform to the rules and that everything is possible. That is why they always try to break down the barriers, to force to the limit the laws of physics or their own integrity or security.
