The popularity of extreme sports has continued to grow over the last decade. These activities are undertaken at high speed, high altitude, and high degree of physical exertion. It is agreed that no amount of words are adequate to convey the thrill of skiing, deep sea diving, bungee jumping, water rafting or any other adventure sport. This argument can be proven by looking at how these kinds of sports teach self-reliance, teamwork and let everyone leave their comfort zone. Firstly, the risk-taking sports help in development of self confidence and independence. For instance, by successfully facing up the challenge of adventurous sports like surfing, young people overcome their fears and apprehensions along the way and develop a feeling of unusual accomplishment. This makes it clear that sliding over giant waves, instead of an indoor game, helps in developing the balance, using more muscle groups, and taking on a journey in an uncontrolled environment that stimulates brain with countless variables. Thus, achieving your goals in an unpredictable weather, recognizing the thrill of beating storm and making it back home safely result in enhancement of overall personality of an adventurous person. Moreover, many people are reluctant to try new things like scuba diving mountain biking, white river rafting, para-gliding etc., thinking that they do not possess the skills or have an ability to enjoy it. Encouraging people to try new activities results in building up team spirit, promoting positive attitude and making them come out of their comfort zone. Thus, we can say that by trying out dangerous sports, one can get rid-off the negative feeling and develop a feeling of working as a team. Although the previously mentioned facts are all very positive, they are still not the reason for its increasing popularity. The real answer for its attraction is that there are no limits in this sport besides the laws of gravity. While a football player can only play within an approximately 120X40 course and a racecar driver can drive along a maximum 5 miles long track a surfer can decide on visiting any of the oceans or seas around the world and a basejumper can jump off from any height and from each chosen cliff or tower in various weather conditions. In opposition to the finitely many rules of the average sports like the numerous types of grips in ballgames or the determined movements in athletics a board riders trick can at worst be a bit clumsy but nobody would say that its cheating or not fair etc. Any kind of adventure sport develops competitive spirit and makes one to face the future problems with utmost patience. When one participates in these kinds of sport activities, one could become capable of handling the various vicissitudes of life because adventure sports require high hard working tendency. Moreover, there would a change to meet people of their kind and could enjoy one other’s company. Next, a person gets the thrilling experience which remains as the nostalgic memories. Finally, a person would be trained so that one may serve one’s country by joining the defense services. Therefore, it is clear that adventure sports are highly beneficial. However, adventure sports have the other facet which cons. Generally, these sports are chosen by youngsters and in the event of playing they may be severely injured, sometimes may become physically handicapped. Furthermore, in extreme cases, these sports may cause death of a person. For instance, car race, which gives thrill but with the minor mistake it may cost their valuable lives. Hence, these sports are dangerous. To summarize, ultimately by taking proper care and by being careful, one can minimize the cons of these sports.
