Extreme/action Sports!

This is a little thread for those of us that love watching and participating in extreme/ action sports. I personally don't participate in much, since I AM located in NYC and there is almost nothing to do here, but here is a little list.

-Used to skateboard (till dad broke middle finger on it, brother broke an arm )- I didn't go it long enough to break anything. (Like 2yrs I guess)
-I ski and snowboard, I've gotten great at boarding and have been doing small 5-8ft tall jumps and even did a 180 spin last time I was out.
-I was told of a place not too far away from me that does skydiving, next year I plan on getting some good friends to go with me and doing a group dive.

Always wanted to go rock climbing, and downhill mountain biking. (And I still can't believe I haven't been paintballing yet!!)
If we had a track anywhere here, I would be racing something-- anything from go karts/ dirtbikes/ a motorcycle, I live to race..
I love watching rally and pretty much all the X games/ Dew/ Monster sponsored events.
I watch all types of racing except NASCAR

What are you guys into when it comes to these?

I'm a free runner, have been for a while now. Some people don't see it as extreme, but I don't see why. I've never had a rush better then the one from running and jumping off a roof into a landing roll, its pretty amazing.

I have always been very interested in parkour and free running the best i have really done though is small roof to roof gaps.

What i am really into is snowboarding! I worked up at Brighton this past winter so i was riding pretty much everyday! I went through 3 boards this year! lol I was getting pretty good. hitting a lot of big cliffs up there!

If you have the time and a place to do it at, If you live in a town with nothing to really jump over or anythng then its gonna be hard to get into, You have to be able to practice, because without practice you'll get nowhere. I advise you to get into it if you have the time. It is one of the best workouts you can get. Just make sure you have the strength and endurance to do it, I'll give you my workout routine if you want it.
