6 Extreme Sports That Can Be Enjoyed Indoors

There is nothing more disappointing than bad weather for an extreme athlete. You know very well that the craving for adrenaline-fuelled activities does not run on a schedule. They hit when they want and don’t give a damn about the weather.

Of course, you don’t want to risk your safety, so the next best option for you is to go through the list of 5 extreme sports you can do indoors:

Karting

With a race you can reach greater heights of excitement. It not only feeds the mind but also the soul of a sports junkie. But like any other extreme sport, racing can be dangerous.

This is because of the speed and the uneven terrain, especially in winter or on rainy days. Thank goodness for indoor karting zones nowadays, which are available to racing enthusiasts at any time of the year.

Moreover, indoor karting offers a more controlled environment where factors such as the temperature of the room, the surface of the tracks, the obstacles and even the noise, which can sometimes lead to accidents, can be easily influenced and monitored.

Paintball

“If you’re more into an interactive kind of extreme sport, then an indoor paintball game is your first choice. This sport keeps your mind active with strategies and your body in good shape with the stunts.

Paintball is widely popular, but other extreme sports that use gel blasters can offer the same thrill. Paintball is also perfect for friends or work colleagues who want to show off their teamwork skills.

Again, the advantage of an indoor game is that the environment is more controlled. Most accidents at a paintball game are caused by slips, bumps, poor visibility and even unbearable temperatures.

All these factors can be conveniently monitored by the game supervisors during an indoor paintball battle.

Wall Climbing

You see a man climbing up a wall and you think the activity is swift and easy because his pace is slow and demeanor calm. Although wall climbing isn’t as intense as one would normally expect of extreme indoor sports, it ultimately puts your muscle strength to the test.

Going against gravity is difficult. Plus, it’s risky since the higher you go, the harder will be the fall. Thankfully, indoor wall climbing grants you the opportunity to safely practice and choose your board (e.g., beginners or experts).

Unlike outdoor climbing with the wind as the constant enemy, an indoor version is relatively less risky.

Horse Jumping

Some athletes prefer not to interact with the equipment but with another living being. Equestrian sports are a perfect example of this type of sport. You can add to your thrill by participating in a competitive and adrenaline-fuelled horse show, which can very well take place indoors.

Usually, the covered arena consists of a fenced grass area or a sandbox with obstacles inside. Spectators are kept outside the area so as not to disturb the riders and horses. Indoor horse jumping or horse shows are equally risky and therefore considered a dangerous sport.

Animals, unlike equipment or other humans, exhibit unpredictable behaviour that can endanger the rider’s life. But compared to outdoor horse shows, an indoor version is free from unforeseen stimuli such as honking cars, falling objects and volatile weather conditions.

Snowboarding

Indoor snowboarding is now available for those who seek ice adventures during the autumn or fall seasons. Snowboarding rinks are typically designed with sliding humps and elevated platforms that vary in height and shape.

Ceilings are also high enough to accommodate long jumps and other air stunts by participating snowboarders. Rinks can either be glassed or designed as open spaces.

Skateboarding

Skateboarding can be done indoors also. Contrary to popular belief, skateboarding is a legitimate extreme sports completion. In fact it is part of the international sports competitions, including the Olympics and the ASEAN Games.

An indoor skateboarding stadium allows enthusiasts to practice their favorite action sport through dry and wet seasons. Injuries due to slippery slopes or sharp objects along the way are mainly caused by poor maintenance.

Action sports have obviously evolved through time. People get to enjoy them now in the winter, spring, summer, or fall because sports organizers and entrepreneurs are designing indoor spaces similar to outdoor gaming areas.

Some water sports such as wakeboarding and boating can even be experienced using man-made structures. It is only a matter of time before all other extreme sports will be played under covered courts.
