For people who are always looking for their next big rush, it always pays off to look in the direction of sports. There are dozens of sports and hobbies that can range from mildly exciting, to heart stopping and jaw dropping. The fun-loving adrenaline junkie should give them all a try, in order to find a new hobby that will keep them entertained and satisfied.
Competitive shooting is a great adrenaline sport. While there is not much danger in competitive shooting when it comes to well trained and safe competitors, using firearms can definitely get the adrenaline pumping. Competition hand guns are specifically designed for the sport of shooting. Joining local chapters and groups will offer the individual lots of friendly sparring.
Sky diving can be very scary for many people, and few people will ever do it. Free falling from a plane at high speeds towards the earth's surface is absolutely terrifying. For those who love to get their hearts pumping hard, it is an exhilarating experience that everyone should try out. However, sky diving might not be the experience of choice for those with intense anxiety.
Demolition derbies are beyond fun, for both drivers and the audience. Competitors spend the year building their demo derby vehicles, and destroy them within one, incredibly fun show. While there is far more time spent preparing for the derby than competing in it, this type of sporting event could offer the individual lots of insight and hands on experience with engine repair and rebuilding. Being able to play a real life version of bumper cars seems to be worth every minute of preparation for the derby drivers.
For those who love equine sports, barrel racing is a high speed sport that ends in the blink of an eye. The horse and rider must speed out of the gate, wrap around three barrels without touching them, then race back towards the gate. Many of the best riders will complete the course within 18 to 20 seconds or less; meaning that the horse is moving at a very high speed. Quarter horses, the world's fastest horse, are commonly used for this sport.
High risk and high speed sports will always get hearts racing. For the dare devil in life who is seeking a little more excitement, many of these sports could definitely do the trick.
