Slackline

[TOP 10] He risks his life on a slackline to break a record

This week, slackline, bodyboard and cliffdiving performances will make you travel and dream

Nothing except his talent could save him on his slackline

Spencer Seabrooke, the canadian daredevil, set a new world record in highline. This exploit is way gnarlier than it sounds given that he had no support rope despite being 951ft (290 meters) above the ground. He broke the record of the longest free solo slackliner by seven meters, walking 64 meters without safety harness, the length of two basketball courts ! This record almost turned into a disaster as he slipped off the rope within the 30 first seconds, held the tiny rope with all his strength. Convinced that your mind is stronger than your body, he kept going on this tiny line, with a lot of grunts. This is probably the scariest exploit you’ll ever witness !

 

Two touching stories of bodyboard and cliffdiving

Juan Hernandez, also called Zancudo, is a bodyboarder from Salvador who has never ridden his bodyboard like the others. He never wanted to surf the way everyone told him to. At the time, having your own surfing board was kind of a luxury. Then, Zancudo developed his own style and technic to become the Master of stand up bodyboarding.

Cliff jumping is also on the front of the stage. Cliff Life crew wants us to discover an abandoned quarry in Vermont... Of course, these pics are as impressive as beautiful, but the team wants to deliver a message to all the riders. They wish not to see such splendid places of practice being overcrowded and filled with graffitis anymore. This video will better show you how precious these places are!

Surf

[WORLD FIRST] 850 mètres parcourus d’une seule lancée sur une planche

Cet été, l’incroyable tunnel d’eau autour de Timmy Turner ne le lâche pas pendant un moment !

La renaissance qu’on n’attendait pas

C’est à l’occasion d’une performance en collaboration avec la marque Rip Curl que le surfeur se lance à l’assaut des vagues indonésiennes, qu’il pensait pourtant ne jamais revoir après un grave accident qu’il avait eu en 2005. Après quelques essais, il parvient à franchir une distance équivalente à 933 yards (853 mètres) d’un seul coup sur ce qui semble être la « Houle du Siècle » !

 

Un matos de pro

D’où sortent des chiffres d’une aussi grande précision ? Le matériel mis à disposition de Timmy Turner pour évaluer sa performance n’était pas en reste : il disposait d’une montre GPS spécialement destinée à la pratique du surf, et a ainsi pu être certain d’établir le record de la plus longue vague surfée avec une vitesse de 44 km/h ! Et ses fans ont pu le suivre au centre du barrel grâce à cette vidéo !

Surf

[WORLD FIRST] 930 yards of waves surfed in a single attempt!

This summer, Timmy Turner gets into an incredible water tunnel and stays there for a while

The reborn no one expected

Although the surfer thought he could never taste the Indonesian waves again after the serious accident he had in 2005, he finally had the opportunity to stand on a board in the sea again while performing with the collaboration of Rip Curl. After a few attempts, he succeeded in surfing a distance of 933 yards in a wave that could easily have been called the “Swell of the Century”.

 

A pro material

But where do so precise figures come from? That's because Timmy Turner had a very specific equipment to assess his performance. He carried a GPS watch especially designed for surfing, and therefore he was pretty sure to establish the record of the largest wave ever surfed with a speed of 27.4 mph! And what’s more, his fans can now follow him in this water barrel thanks to this video!

[INNOVATION] The Walk Car, a skateboard you can take everywhere

Here is a Japanese invention that will find its way to our bags quite soon

A little bit more than a weigh scale with wheels

The Cocoa Company in Tokyo offers us to discover some images of its newest toy that should be released in shops next spring: the Walk Car. When taken out of a bag, it could surely be confused with a touchpad, but in fact it is a sort of little electric skateboard that can has a 12-kilometres battery power. And it especially can get extremely useful in daily life!

 

A watershed for skateboard?

The Walk Car can bear a weight of 120 kg, and there are many ways to use it every day: carry heavy objects, help a senior or a disabled person to walk, and many others. The device’s reactions to its user’s body position and gesture is close to a Segway – it accelerates when you lean forward, etc. Although you will have to wait some time before it becomes a real extreme sport, the Walk Car nevertheless can push some of you to try electric skateboard!

[INNOVATION] Le Walk Car, un skateboard à emporter partout

Portrait d’une invention japonaise qui devrait bientôt se retrouver dans nos sacs

Bien plus qu’un pèse-personne à roulettes

La société tokyoïte Cocoa Motors nous propose de découvrir en images son nouveau joujou, qui sortira au printemps prochain : le Walk Car. Facile à confondre avec une tablette tactile lorsqu’on le voit sorti d’un sac, l’engin en question est en réalité une sorte de mini skateboard électrique qui dispose d’une autonomie de 12 kilomètres et qui peut s’avérer sacrément utile dans la vie de tous les jours !

 

Un tournant pour le skate ?

Le Walk Car peut supporter un poids de près de 120 kg, et ses applications au quotidien sont multiples : transporter des objets lourds, aider une personne âgée ou handicapée à se déplacer, parmi bien d’autres. L’appareil réagit à la posture du corps à la manière d’un gyropode – accélérant lorsque la personne se penche en avant, etc. On attendra un peu avant d’en faire un sport extrême en tant que tel, mais le Walk Car pourrait peut-être pousser certains à se mettre au skate électrique !
