What Extreme sports has Giorgy already done

In my 25 years of living, I experienced a lot of different Extreme activities (for instance, most of them abroad). What does it mean? Also, surfing daily could be dangerous, you would say. Let’s face it; would you throw yourself out of a plane? Try rafting in a raging river? Canyoning downhill of a river? Do you dare? Not everyone enjoys these sports & some would even not try them at all. And that’s absolutely fine. But for those of you who are interested, here is my list of Extreme sport I’ve tried until today. Seatback, relax and enjoy it!

  • Canyoning: A sport by many names, in Switzerland people, call it like this. Basically is traversing a canyon or gore by combining hiking, climbing, swimming, and/or abseiling. It explores the hard-to-reach areas of a natural landscape by following a water route covered through a rock formation.
    The first time I tried it was in Ticino, my hometown, for my 19th birthday. It was a lot of fun even tho it took us 5 hours instead of 2 and a half as it was originally planned. Well, I believe a professional is taking 30 minutes? At least we reached the end super tired but happy as a child at Disneyland.
  • Skydiving: I believe it’s the second Extreme sport I’ve done in my life. I was traveling in New Zealand & got super excited about the idea of skydiving and being able to see the Glacier, Alps, and both islands. So, here I was… enjoying the view as if the feeling of falling disappeared and it transformed itself into flying!

    Look at me, I’m fabulous!
  • Rafting: people often underestimate this sport. What if you fall off the boat & find yourself hitting the head on a rock? Or that you end up in a current and being unable to get out? Well, I did it in Colombia, San Gil, when the level of the water was the highest which means it was really dangerous & the color of water turned from blue to brown!!! To be honest, it was really fun, I would happily incentive others doing it with this company in San Gil: well prepared and professional equipped!
  • Surfing: do you want to put my life in danger by eating from a shark, if it’s not dangerous? Just because they confused me for a Sealion. Well, nothing really happened to me otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this article. I always saw surfing as a way of flirting with nature. Will I win against the wave or will it take me away with it? Amazing!
    When I was in Hawaii, Honolulu, I had the pleasure of trying it. I couldn’t walk for the next few days, at least I had fun trying it!
  • Apnea: I have a big admiration of those who are doing this sport. I just can’t imagine myself doing it, since I am able of fighting with fish while scuba diving imagine what could I do while freediving?
  • Paragliding: I think when I was in Colombia I let myself go & tried some sport out of my comfort zone as for paragliding. It could be a bit dizzy but you feel like flying. It could be also really dangerous, if you get into the wrong currents, you can end up dead.
    It was an experience but I would NOT repeat it again.
  • Bungee Jumping: today is considered an established reality for thrill-seekers. Therefore it doesn’t fall into the category of extreme sports since no physical ability is required to perform a good jump (therefore to avoid the failure to perform the jump – if you don’t jump on your own, you get thrown off the team anyway).
    Pure adrenaline.
    I signed up 3 times, every time my reservation was canceled. Sign of destiny, better not do it!
  • Acrobatic skiing: I swear I didn’t want to try it. The only time I did it was when I was snowboarding by following my brother through the slope. Little I realize he put me into a jump which I ended up hurting my butt by landing on the ice. Well, I didn’t walk for the next 5 days. Funny now, but not at that moment LOL.
  • Wake surf: I made some research and nowhere appears that wake surfing is considered an extreme Sport. Well, I simply wanted to brag that I did it.
  • Aggressive skating: interesting, right? When I first read it I was like “Wall, am I?”. No, I hate skating on the ramps, the only thing I do is skate downhill on speed.
  • Sandboarding: is a board sport and considered an extreme sport similar to snowboarding that involves riding across or down a sand dune while standing on a board, either with both feet strapped in or while standing loose without bindings. Because I am not an expert I just did it by lying on the belly down the slope.

Misadventures with animals, do they count? Okay, no.. kidding! Otherwise hiking would be considered dangerous because you might encounter obstacles like cows for example – any reference is random lol.

Well, the list is longer than this one but I would like to keep myself safe.
