horse boarding

Array
Gear  |  Sport
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."

Knokkers – Billiards & Bowling

Array
Gear  |  Sport
Steve Wienecke, a former semi-pro football player and cage fighter, who has designed and built the Knokkers. It looks like the pool table.  But instead of billiard balls it uses bowling balls. And the table is scaled up 4X its original size, allowing, and requiring, players to stand on it. The first  playable version was built in his backyard in Fredericktown, Missouri using loads of railway ties, gravel and of course concrete. The game is played pretty much exactly like standard 8-ball pool, the only real difference is that before your shot you’re allowed to pick up and move the cue ball, though you can’t move your feet once you’ve touched it.
