Ice Climbing

Ice climbing is mainly a northern hemisphere sport and is undertaken mostly during the winter months. It is one of the most dangerous extreme sports but this does not stop people who want to do it. Ice climbers need special shoes and other equipment to effectively participate.

Shoes should be able to grip the slippery ice surface and support the climber. They should also protect the climber’s ankles both from injury and cold. An ice axe is important for making the steps to climb up. Some good destinations are found in Canada in Ontario and Quebec. In Banff National park in Canada it is possible to undertake some ice-climbing and equipment can be hired.

Surfing

Surfing is an extreme water sport where the player rides on top of a sea wave. It does not require much in terms of equipment but for specialised clothing and a surf board, a knee board or body board. While some play for cash a lot of people play for pleasure.

Surfing was a traditional sport in Hawaii even before it got modernised. Almost all coastal areas of the world engage in surfing. It is a big sport in California where temperatures are usually milder.
