Watch A Darts Player Produce "Magic The Like Of Which We May Have Never…

I won't pretend to know the rules of darts—I guess you don't have to hit the bulls-eye? I thought that was the main thing—but it's obvious something special is happening here when Michael van Gerwen takes over the PDC World Championship by hitting "a nine-darter"—and then nearly doing it again. The crowd freaks, the… » 1/06/13 6:05pm 1/06/13 6:05pm

Here's The Highest Wave Ever Surfed

Off the Portgual coast, the Nazaré Canyon is an undersea chasm the size of the Grand Canyon that funnels enormous waves directly to Nazaré Beach. That's where American Garrett McNamara caught and rode one estimated at 90 feet—a world record. And best of all, while you watched him ride it you probably weren't even… » 11/09/11 2:25pm 11/09/11 2:25pm

Skateboarder Does Thing With Skateboards

See, first he's on this one skateboard, which is pretty impressive, seeing how that's a thing that a lot of people can't do. But then he jumps off the skateboard, which seems like it would be incrementally harder than just riding one without jumping off. And then he flips, which is also a hard thing to do in any… » 10/20/11 7:30pm 10/20/11 7:30pm

When Your Parachute Doesn't Open, All That's Left Is A 876-Foot Belly…

This is not a live-action Wile E. Coyote reenactment. It is video from Saturday's Bridge Day in Fayetteville, West Virginia, where BASE jumpers try their luck from the New River Gorge Bridge. Despite Christopher Brewer's parachute not deploying in time, his wingsuit slowed him just enough (he hit the water between 60… » 10/17/11 4:55pm 10/17/11 4:55pm

Apologies To Andrés Cantor, But Mountain Biking Announcers Are The…

Young Briton Danny Hart obliterated the best downhill mountain bikers by nearly 12 seconds this weekend at the world championships in Champery, Switzerland. Normally, Hart's performance would soon retreat back into the shadow world that is downhill mountain biking. But no. Not this day. Not if commentators Rob Warner… » 9/06/11 5:40pm 9/06/11 5:40pm

"Grinding The Crack": A Cool Wingsuit Video With A Questionable Name

The human-size flying squirrel in this video is named Jeb Corliss. He's a professional BASE jumper and a wing-suit pilot. You may remember him as one of the people who BASE jumped into the Super Bowl XXXVIII pregame show. You may not. Corliss has been permanently banned from the Empire State Building for trying to… » 8/31/11 5:20pm 8/31/11 5:20pm

Asthmatic 61-Year-Old Woman Tries To Be The First Person To Swim From…

Endurance swimmers are impressive extreme athletes. Swimming long distances is brutal. And bad bad things happen to you in the ocean. Especially when you're 61 and have asthma. Not that that bothers Diana Nyad, who's attempting to make it 103 miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. It's a feat that has never… » 8/08/11 4:25pm 8/08/11 4:25pm

The Highlight Reel From This Women's Motocross Event Contains The…

Let's go ahead and ignore the slew of kitchen jokes that everyone has already made over on YouTube and admit that we have never attempted to ride on a motocross course, let alone in the "Moto Enduro X," the new X-Games event that struggled its way to completion last night in Los Angeles. For all we know, then, the… » 8/01/11 2:55pm 8/01/11 2:55pm
