Falling under an unusual category, Asian Extreme Sports has always been deemed as one that involves a high level of danger. The adrenaline rush one gets from participating from an extreme sport far surpasses any other sport today. Yet, this sports category is extremely fun, energetic and a great form of exercise to many who take it up. Certain categories of extreme sports also involve the use of highly specialised gear and stunts.
