Gotta Watch: Extreme sports

There are some people out there who operate on 100% pure adrenaline. Normal sports and activities aren't enough, so they take it to another level. These thrill seekers throw caution to the wind and take risks just to feel that rush. You've Gotta Watch these daredevils attempt the unthinkable. And like they say, do not try this at home!

Windsurfing on ice? — Windsurfing on water isn't anything new, and some people choose to windsurf on land. But what happens when temperatures drop below zero? Instead of taking up ice fishing, these self-proclaimed "crazy" people modified their own boards to glide across a frozen lake. Their rigs have reached 30 mph, but wait until you hear how fast some others have gone!

Wingsuit stuntman shoots 90-foot gap –  Professional stuntman and adrenaline junkie Jeb Corliss has flown through a waterfall in the Swiss Alps, jumped from the top of the Eiffel Tower and was even banned from the Empire State Building for attempting a BASE jump off the observation deck. But his most impressive feat was when he flew through a 100-foot wide hole in China's Tianmen Mountain. You've got to see this daredevil shoot through this extremely narrow cave.

Kayaker hits 189-foot waterfall run –  Some whitewater kayakers will barrel down the most extreme rivers just for the rush. And when Class V rapids and 70 foot waterfalls just aren't enough, Tyler Bradt kicks it up a notch. Watch as he drops almost 19 stories down Washington's Palouse Falls in an attempt to break a world record.

Skiers start avalanche, drop down mountain – Last year, two skiers decided it would be a good idea to trigger an avalanche at the top of the French Alps and then make their run. They strapped on a helmet cam so you can see just how crazy it looks to fly down a mountain with a mass of snow barreling down behind them.

    @GUNG HOE theseathletes are very appprochable people very kind and extremly determined to excel . They have made a majori impression on my daughter in the last month and i opened a can of worms but i love my children so much they deserve the best i cam give them . So i got the oldest one hooked up with the us womens/ mens track (velodrom) racing team, they are some of the kindest young people that ive ever met its a wonder thing thinking that these young people have sacrificed so much to be a pro rider and they are not even 18 to actually walk up to tour daughter and stop and just start talking to you as they have known you for ever

    @greg thanks for responding ive tried all day to rally support for our us women/menstrack velodrom racing teamand ive finaly got through, we as americans need to support these young people in there indevors as pro athlets to see the hard work that they put in to represent our country in the summer games in london is incredible they are from all over the us to mass in southern cal at the home depot center the site of the 84 summer olympics, these young people are incredible, polite, very cordial but they need our support, so what im asking is anybody out there that has super power on a computer start a web site to acknowledge them . They are going up against some formidable foes in the up coming games and its going to be tough im at the track to watch them train when i get the time. My main purpose is to give back to them what they have given my okdest daughter. So if you or anybody can get back asap to tell me the status of support that would be great . Ill always be CLYDESTER
