FREEEE FAAAALL-IN'

Viewfinder: B.A.S.E

Jump from a 500-foot cliff and you’ll free-fall for five or six seconds. It’s a very short moment, but as one yet-anonymous thrill-seeker explains in this short clip, “Your mind becomes so focused on the exact moment that all your senses become amplified. You’re able to hear things, and feel things, and see things that you probably wouldn’t if you weren’t in free fall.”

50 mph on a skateboard, brah

Loaded Boards Chubby Unicorn Deck

If what you know about skateboarding is huge verts, Vans shoes, or longboarders on college campuses, then the Loaded Boards Chubby Unicorn deck ($360) and the whole downhill/freeride movement will blow your mind. Somewhere between snowboarding and street luging, this fun activity involves crazy talented and insanely balanced (maybe not mentally) human beings flying down streets at 50 mph, pre-drifting into turns and emasculating “play it safe” onlookers the whole way.
