Evening!

I know a few people participate in action sports so was wondering what people do!

We have just had a mountain board set up built by local council so been giving it a go today!



Also do kite buggying as a pro rider



And kitesurfing




Also like to go snowboarding also, so what action sports are people on here into!

Kiteboarding is my only extreme action sport I do, used to play rugby, and I want to start doing semi professional rowing :D

kiteboarding looks fun, as does kitesurfing, we get alot of them down here in the "summer". I don't know if it counts as a sport, it has some action when we're not sat around admiring each others weaponry, but I go airsofting :D

Always wanted to try mountain boarding, looks awesome.

I do downhill mountain biking and snowboarding... I'm tempted to get back into skateboarding too.

I used to be a Tae Kwon Do instructor but work keeping me busy soon put a stop to that :down:

Before the wife and kids started to rule my life, I did caving, walking, Tae Kwon Do, odd bit of mountain biking, shooting and even parachuted and did a few years TA in the early '90's.
Now I'm lucky to get a couple of hours watching a movie or PS3 time from 10.30pm on.

So, I'm busy being a bloater and working or keeping the parasites happy.

The kitsurfing looks cool. Not with my back though.

I've still got a mountain bike.

It's rusty.

I'm another biker, however given me a BMX over all those gears anyday! Used to blade and skateboard, but sadly my ankles aren't very good now.

I want to get back into canoeing, used to love doing that!

The nearest I get these days is playing gigs, and yes it is dangerous the way I do it!

Growing up in NZ I was into Rock Climbing, Surfing, Lifeguard (rip swimmer and heli rescues), Inline Skating etc etc

Now not up to much at all apart from RC Heli flying. Different sport but it has the pucker factor...

I used to do mountain biking, then I had an accident. Was 'cheeeeeeesing' down a hill in a country park through a narrow pathway, handle bar hit a tree and dont remember much else. My riding buddy said i slammed into a tree root growing through the mud. From that I dislocated my shoulder and lost 2 teeth. I've taken up running and 7 a-side football since. Taking part in Cardiff half marathon in October. Should be fun.
