Thought all the extreme fanatics lived in Florida? Nope! We’ve got a crew of Xtremers living right here on the south shore.
Tonight we’ve got four of them in the studio – Mike Marsh, wakeboarder gone pro-circuit (pictured left), Anthony Geraci, NETRA offroad dirt bike champion 3 years (04,05,06), Jarrod O’Leary who does crazy motorcycle stunts (yeah, the big heavy ones!) and Jon Basile who surfs year round (even in -10degree weather).
These Adrenalin junkies are serious athletes (kids don’t try this at home!). They all do multiple sports too — triathlons, boogie boarding, windsurfing, skateboarding…you name it, they do it! And if we had asked… they would have packed the studio with twenty or thirty more stunt riding, extreme surfing, dirt bike riding, wakeboarding friends…we’re sure of it!
Of course, as crazy as these daredevils are…we found a few extreme sports that you’ve probably never heard of and maybe wish you hadn’t.
That part comes later on The Virtual View:
1. Stunt Pogo.
This is not your father’s pogo stick. The “flybar”, a super springy pogo stick, can launch people seven feet in the air. Stunt pogoing has it’s own brand of tricks and incorporates styles from BMX and skateboarding, just without the cool factor. Check out this video from the NYC street games and you might be so impressed, youmight go out and buy a pogo stick.
