Red Bull Rampage | Best Bike Crashes

Let’s face it, we all love watching the world’s best mtb riders send it at Red Bull Rampage. Backflips over canyons, massive drops, and sketchy lines at insanely high speeds make for quite the show, especially while done on Mountain Bikes.

But, crashes are inevitable, and the consequences in Virgin, Utah are unforgivable to say the least; falling off cliffs, into canyons and casing 25m jumps…you know, the usual dangers of riding your bike on, and off, a totally raw mountain.

In anticipation of the 10th edition of Rampage, let’s take a look at this compilation of the gnarliest crashes over the years.

Kayaker vs Hammerhead Shark

“I was trolling for bonito off the coast of Gaviota State Beach when my kayak was hit in the back. I turned around to see a very aggressive hammerhead shark ramming/biting my kayak and decided I needed to defend myself. I hit the shark over and over and over with my paddle before he finally settled down. He then stalked me all the way back to shore, occasionally approaching me again and receiving another paddle to the face. Even after I was on shore, he remained in about 4 feet of water pacing back and forth like he was just waiting for round #2. Haha.”

-Mark McCracken

Do you need a vessel so fight sharks off in?  Look no further, we have kayaks in stock HERE.

Come Hell or High Water | Trailer

Come Hell or High Water—the first feature-length film to be made about the sport of bodysurfing. A winner of Best Film and Best Cinematography awards on the festival circuit, Come Hell or High Water explores the history and development of bodysurfing alongside the purity of experience that is riding a wave, taking a unique look at the culture and beauty of the sport, while capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to its community. The film’s unanticipated popularity may well reflect the less-is-more, environmentally aware consciousness of our times; as the simplest of all ocean sports, bodysurfing requires little more than swim fins and some waves.
