Extreme sport is a name given to the activities, which involve danger. They often include speed, height or physical exertion. These activities can be in the form of thrilling stunts. Extreme sports attract the youth of modern times. Youngsters often enjoy participating in extreme sport events and most of us take great interest in watching people perform feats associated with adventure sports.

Some extreme sports of the later years emerged as a combination of two or more extreme sports. They required the abilities, which were a blend of those required in each of those two to three extreme sports. One example of this sport is sky surfing. It combines snowboarding and skydiving. Snowboarding itself evolved as a blend of skateboarding and surfing. The extreme sport that experienced parachutists play, includes acrobatics performed in the sky. Here the acrobatic stunts performed on snowboards, are performed in the sky. Whitewater kayaking, bungee jumping, free climbing and wind sailing are some of the extreme sports of today.
