Sports and Extreme Adventure Tourism in Asia  Generally speaking,  we don’t really know why action or adventure activities are called “extreme sport.” But some of the characteristic are that they are mostly youth based and mainly individual performances and that they do normally not involve teams. Extreme sports are about participant adrenaline rush, skill and danger. There are many different types of action sports that travelers around the world engage in, both men and women. Men are often engaged in extreme sports with dangerous physical challenges, like base jumping, an activity where participants jump from fixed objects with parachutes, or waterfall kayaking, a 3-4 second ride five stories of water,  or maybe big-wave surfing, trying to brake records in 100 feet waves. Women, on the other hand are not left behind, they may go for action sports where high physical ability and mental skills and understanding are needed. On the water, both surfing and white water rafting are very popular, and you don’t have to be in California to start, and rafting involves riding an inflatable raft through rough, rushing waters with a local guide leading the way. On land, women may go for the indoor activity called Roller Derby, a sport ruled solely by women, and its a full contact sport, certainly not played by the physically challenged
