BORED OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE? GOT NOTHING SPECIAL TO DO THIS CHRISTMAS? WE’VE GOT SOME BADASS ACTIVITIES THAT’LL PROVIDE THE RUSH YOU ALWAYS NEEDED…

01. WINGSUIT FLYING 

What: Unlike skydiving where it’s a freefall, wingsuit flying uses the wingsuit to add to the surface area to the body that enables the body to glide in the air.

Where: Zephyrhills, Florida

You Need: Previous skydiving experience, a license, your logbook, and your own wingsuit

How To Do It: Florida is the home for skydive city and the Z-Flock Wingsuit School provides personalised jumps.

02. HELI-SKIING 

What: Jumping off a helicopter from 10,000 ft. could look cool on James Bond. But then, it’s for a movie. Do it yourself by taking a jump off the helicopter in Chugach, where 50 ft. of snow will welcome you. And if you are brave enough, you’ll make it past the course of rocks and tree-littered terrain.

Where: Chugach, Alaska

You Need: Ski or snowboard boots, sunscreen, sunglasses, and mountain-appropriate apparel

How To Do It: Book from those heli-skiing camps and get ready for an 80,000 ft of vertical snow to ride. Take it to the next level by taking the ultimate package with a half-boat and half extreme skiing in the perilous slope.

03. CROCODILE BUNGEE 

What: Done enough of bungee jumping that you can boast of? Now is the time to take it to pro level. Jumping off a dizzying height straight into the man-eating territory of crocodiles is the new spice of the sport.

Where: Zambezi River, Australia

You Need: Previous bungee jumping experience is a must. Also, pray that the crocodiles have their tummies full!

How To Do It: It’s more or less a bungee jumping. Add some crocodiles to that, waiting to chew your head off. Survive it and you’ll have a story to tell your grandchildren.

04. CAGE DIVING 

What: The adrenaline-pumper in you has probably seen enough of sharks on Discovery to try out cage diving. With just a few metal bars separating you from the 18-foot long great white shark’s jaws under water, it is gonna be one of the most terrifying experiences of your life.

Where: Farallon Islands, California

You Need: Firstly, you don’t need a scuba diving certificate. What you actually need is to go in the mating season of sharks from September to November. Plan it accordingly, guys!

How To Do It: Just get in the cage and pray for your survival. There is not much you can do, anyway!

05. VOLCANO BOARDING 

What: Also known as ash boarding, it is performed on volcano slopes. Divided in two forms, one is to board down an active volcano where the immediate danger is the molten lava. Second is coming down of an inactive volcano which is quite similar to sand boarding.

You Need: Balls to get down (one way or the other).

How To Do It: Book at local trekker which provides equipment and a preliminary hike to the summit of the volcano for a dummy run down the mountain.

06. TRAIN SURFING 

What: Billed as an illegal sport, this one involves climbing or surfing on the roof of a moving train. A popular sport in the 80s, it has been revived recently.

Where: India, Indonesia and South Africa. 

You Need: All you need are enough balls to do it while avoiding death.

How To Do It: Get on the roof of an overcrowded train and relax. If you need more thrill, stand on it and get the feel of the speed.

07. BLOWHOLE DIVING 

What: Blowhole is formed when the sea caves grow landwards into vertical shafts, resulting in water to blast its way out on top. It seems somewhere close to what happens with whales. How about diving your way out of that water!

Where: Hanauma Bay, off the island of Oahu. 

You Need: A diving certificate! Your guide might want to see you do a couple of extreme dives before taking you to the blowhole!

How To Do It: Pick the right conditions: wait for a slack (incoming) tide and stay within 100 feet of the shore. Also, keep your eyes peeled for marine life. It’s one of Hawaii’s most diverse dive sites, where you can spot green sea turtles, butterflyfish, and Spanish dancers.
