"Remember when marathons were something only a few extraordinary athletes did? Now your neighbour's done one. In a rhino costume. The same is happening across the board of sport as people of all ages realise that paragliding, white water rafting, abseiling, ultra running, wakeboarding and the rest are all entirely possible (and enormous fun) for us mere mortals. Increasingly fringe sports are being sought out not just by thrill seekers, but by those who may have never felt comfortable in traditional sports. Or just those who have never felt comfortable being stereotyped. There is almost no limit to the variety on offer or the different degrees of thrills and risks. This book takes a look at the vast range of adventure sports now on offer and how you can master them while turning up the adrenaline volume in the process." Steve Shipside. This is a book for anyone who: may have tried bungy jumping - but never SCAD dived; loves scuba but has never Nitroxed; likes white water rafting, but doesn't know about wildwater racing; thinks kite surfing looks cool, but doesn't know where to start; knows that sandboarding, kloofing, and windsurfing are available on holidays but would like to know more about what's involved; is curious to hear more about Zorbing, rap jumping, BASE jumping, sky surfing ...and wife carrying. With the "52 Brilliant Ideas" series readers can enhance their existing skills with negligible investment of time or money and will substantially improve their performance over the course of a year. Each of the 52 chapters tackles a single aspect of the subject in an entertaining and lively way. At the end of each chapter is a "how did it go?" feature which allows readers to reflect on the lesson in a classical experiential learning pattern. The tone of each book is personal and informal; readers will feel as thought they are having a one-to-one with their favourite coach.
