Extreme Sports Party Supplies – The Background
Extreme Sports Party Supplies are based on extreme sports, also known as adventure sports, action sports and freesports. The term “Extreme Sports” is used for those activities that are perceived as having a very high level of inherent danger. Extreme sports can take place in air, land, or water. These sports involve speed, height, spectacular stunts, highly specialized gear and a high level of physical exertion.
However, it is very difficult to classify a sport as extreme sport according to its definition. The best example would be road cycling sport. According to studies, road cycling ranks at the top for the number of injuries, but it is not classified into extreme sport. The reason may be that it is not counter-cultural.
It is also unclear as how the term “Extreme Sports” originated. But it became popular when the marketing companies picked it up for the promotion of the X Games in 1990s. X Games is a multi-sport event that is created and developed by ESPN. The first X Games were organized in the United States in Newport, Providence, Mount Snow, and Vermont and this event was known as 1995 Extreme Games.
Although the consideration of a sport as being ‘extreme’ is extremely debatable, there are several characteristics that are common to most extreme sports. First of all, extreme sports are mainly for the youth, although there is no restriction for others to participate. Extreme sports are normally never sanctioned by schools. Extreme sports are normally performed solo. Some of the notable exceptions to the previous characteristic are rafting and paintballing as they are played/performed in teams. Also, extreme newbies start working on their sport on their own (without a coach’s guidance), although, some hire a coach later.
Extreme sports are different from traditional sports due to the higher number of uncontrollable variables. In these activities, the participants not only compete against other participants, but also against environmental challenges and obstacles. These variables are mainly terrain and weather relates, like, snow, wind, mountains and water. Because these natural variables cannot be controlled, they inevitably affect the result of the given activity or event. For example, snowboarders have to face changing snow conditions, climbers have to negotiate rock and ice quality and the surfers have to face wave height and shape.
In traditional sports, the judgment criteria is the assessment of the performance in the terms of distance, time, score, etc., but in extreme sports the performance of a participant is assessed on aesthetic and more subjective criteria.
Nine air sports are classified into extreme sports: bungee jumping, base jumping, gliding, hang gliding, ski jumping, high wire, sky surfing, sky diving, and sky flying.
Eighteen land sports are classified into extreme sports: adventure racing, indoor climbing, BMX, aggressive inline skating, motocross, caving, freestyle skiing, extreme skiing, land and ice yachting, mountain boarding, mountain biking, outdoor climbing, skateboarding, sandboarding, snowmobiling, snowboarding, speed skiing, speed biking, scootering and street luge.
Fifteen water sports are classified into extreme sports: barefoot water skiing, free-diving, cliff diving, jet skiing, powerboat racing, open water swimming, scuba diving, round the world yacht racing, snorkeling, surfing, speed sailing, whitewater kayaking, wakeboarding, windsurfing, and kitesurfing.
Some of the extreme sports have existed in our society for decades, like, rock climbing and ice climbing. Who doesn’t know the names of Edmund Hillary, Chris Bonington, Wolfgang Gullich and Joe Simpson. Surfing was invented by the inhabitants of Hawaii centuries ago.

Extreme Sports Party Supplies – The Options
We’ve got a lot of options to choose from. You may select Basic Party Pack from our Extreme Sports Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Extreme Sports Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Extreme Sports Basic Pack. The Extreme Sports deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Extreme Sports Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Extreme Sports Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Extreme Sports Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Extreme Sports Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Extreme Sports fans.
