Hamboards combines skateboard and surfing

"Having a really fun skateboard to ride when the surf was flat became a family project.
Designing over dinner (pass the ketchup) trashing the garage, littering the yards with prototypes, searching anywhere and everywhere for the just right combination of wood, wheels, trucks, bolts and bearings that would bring that unique flow and feel.
It only took them 8 years or so to get it right (surfing every chance you get has a tendency to slow down projects)
The result is a HAMBOARD, which has a phenomenal similarity to surfing. "

Swiss "Jetman" Yves Rossy completed an eight-minute flight along the Grand Canyon on Saturday, one day later than planned and away from the media spotlight.
Leaping from a helicopter about 8,000 feet above the canyon floor, Rossy picked up speed and fired up his jet-wing, which he steers using his body as a kind of rudder/aileron. During the eight minute flight, he startled onlookers by passing over the rim only 200 feet above their heads, hitting speed of up to 190 miles per hour. During the demonstration Rossy hit speeds of 190 miles per hour before powering down his engines and parachuting safely to the canyon floor.
 

horse boarding

This is called horse boarding. But horse boarding is also a sport where participants are towed behind a horse at 35mph on an off-road skateboard. Professional stuntman Daniel Fowler-Prime, 31, invented the sport five years ago after he strung a rope between his off-road 'mountain board' and a horse. Now he has developed the daredevil stunt into a fully fledged sport and is looking forward to hosting the UK's first ever horse boarding championships this summer.

Indi Cowie's Magic

Gear  |  Sport
From Tim Crothers on New York Times. "Last spring, Indie Cowie performed her freestyle soccer routine for 76,000 fans during halftime at a Chelsea-Manchester United match in Manchester.... This 16-year-old does things that no other girl on the planet can do.
Indi Armstrong Cowie learned to walk chasing a soccer ball. At 10 she played on a coed team and once scored all seven goals in a 7-6 win. By that time, Cowie could juggle the ball 2,000 times without stopping.
Her most remarkable talent, and the one that has garnered her the most fame, is freestyle. "Indi is by far the most advanced female freestyler in the world that I’ve seen," says Dan Magness, who holds several Guinness world records in the sport. "Her videos include tricks no other girls are doing. My daughter watches them and wants to be like Indi."
She practices for at least 90 minutes a day and wears through a pair of specialized freestyling sneakers every month. The family garage is her laboratory."
