Speedriding: Skiing with a Parachute on…

The latest extreme sport to take over the world seems to be a logical progression until you see it in action, then the awesome becomes apparent. Speedriding has been evolving for the last decade and like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich it seems to have evolved from two things we love being combined to produce massive amounts of awesome.  Not only does Speedriding double down on awesome but it also lets the intrepid skiers go places that till now have been inaccessible and unrideable on skies alone.

When skiing down near vertical inclines it may seem logical to strap a parachute to your back just in case, but the real moment of genius occurred when someone decided to try it with the parachute open, this is I suspect is the moment of creation for this incredible new sport.

Giving the world a taste of this new extreme sport the soon to be released Speedriding film ‘The Unrideables‘ takes viewers over the edge of the impossible precipice and into world of awesome.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the latest Redbull film to capture the extreme pastime of incredible people. The juxtaposition of two extreme sports created by one simple what if moment. Sit back, relax and let the adrenaline rush begin.
