The term Extreme Sport can be applied to a wide range of activities from ice climbing to storm chasing. It can include competitive sports like BMX racing, or non competitive activities such as cave diving. However, one competitor is ever-present for any participant in all types of extreme sports - danger! There are clubs and organisations all over the UK that have come together to help get people involved in everything from skydiving to snowboarding. There are even clothing trends that have developed in tandem with one or more of the Extreme Sport activities. Nowadays it doesnít matter if youíre into skating or surfing, you can find a look that suits your favourite Extreme Sport. Commercial interest has helped to raise the profile of Extreme Sports into mainstream culture. Made-for-television events such as the X Games have even allowed Ďarm-chairí participation in Extreme Sports. With a level of danger already inherent in Extreme Sports, like snowboarding and skydiving for instance, itís essential that you are correctly equipped and supervised. Fortunately, Great Britain is well served with locations, clubs and organisations, and outlets for equipment. You can even take holidays where the focus is on trying something new and literally thrilling everyday
