In a post-Gymkhana world, where absolutely insane motorized mayhem has become the norm, BJ Baldwin's Recoil 3—the latest installment in a truly mind-blowing trio of Trophy Truck stunt driving masterclasseses—stands apart. A scripted chase scene over the hills and through the streets of Tacoma, Washington, this one showcases some of the gnarliest driving we've ever seen, pushing the capabilities of both driver and machine to their literal breaking points. So grab the firesuit, strap on the helmet, and buckle up, because just watching this one feels dangerous.
With news of Alain Robert's third Ariane Tower climb breaking this week, we decided there was no better time to face our fears and assemble the 5 craziest urban free climbs of all time in one head-spinning, stomach-turning countdown. From the second tallest tower in the world to the apex of the Wembley Arch, there is plenty of no-margin-for-error insanity on display here, so put on those climbing shoes and join us as we head for the clouds.
If you've well been sleeping on UTVUnderground's XP1K side-by-side series, then you're one of the few, with the truly batshit off-road video series racking up over 16 million views across its first two installments (which you should definitely check out if you haven't already). Riding that incredible viral crest, the SxS auteurs dropped their third epic, XP1K3, yesterday and, much like its predecessors, the results have to be seen to be believed. Featuring RJ Anderson pushing a 200-hp Franken-Polaris RZR XP Turbo to its absolute gravitational limits amongst the burnt-out factories and rusted-through trainyards of Youngstown, Ohio, this one might well be the craziest driving video of 2015, so strap in, fire it up, and put that right foot to the floor.
The simple things, man. Grab an inflatable ball, a few friends, and head out to the beach. As these Spanish kids prove, sometimes there doesn't have to be much more to life than fun.
Love waterslides and stepping disoriented into the bright Berlin morning after a night (or was it two?) of dancing your face off in some nameless concrete dungeon that you needed a password to get into? Well, we have just the thing for you: Black Hole, a wild waterslide in Bremerhaven outfitted with more than enough technicolor goodness to keep your inner party animal's most ravenous hunger satisfied. Check it out, bro.
Here's how I don't want to spend my vacation: Dangling from parasail above a capsized boat in the middle of surprise storm. And that's not even the half of it, with the stranded couple getting one last surprise when the rope snaps, sending them drifting off on their own. Somehow, no one was injured, but this is some truly scary footage nonetheless.
Earlier this summer we brought you a Memorial Day edit from Cliff Life, and over July 4th weekend, the New England cliff-jump crew were back at it again, this time taking to Vermont's heaviest quarries and cliffs for another awesome showcase. The footage certainly doesn't disappoint, so check it out and then go send some of your own.
On Saturday, while attempting to navigate the Tour Of Utah's infamous Guardsman Pass hairpin, Irish cyclist Matt Brammeier lost control of his bike, t-boning a chase car and sustaining extensive injuries, including fractured ribs, a punctured lung, and a broken pelvis. Thankfully, Brammeier will be (relatively) OK, but judging by the horrific footage, things could have gone a lot worse.
When Lexus claimed they had cracked the hoverboard code earlier this summer, we were more than a little skeptical. But now it's time for our heaping helping of humble pie, with the luxury automaker unveiling the first actual hoverboard action edit since a couple of asteroids collided, exploded, and fused into the giant hunk of steaming space rock we now call earth. Needless to say, we are out of words, thoughts, and sounds when it comes to this one, so we'll shut it up and check it out for yourself.
If you're insecure about your riding, it's probably best not to watch this one, but everyone else, come this way and pay attention: 11-year-old Kaden Stone's new Entranced video part is about to have your jaw swinging from its hinges.
