Extreme sports can be hard to define, since they are always changing as skills and equipment evolve. They usually involve an inherent element of physical risk, and intense physical and mental challenges. They require special technical skills and abilities, and specialized equipment.
They commonly involve exhilarating speeds, breathtaking heights, or profound depths, and a variety of uncontrolled natural variables. By presenting facts and real stories, the exhibition helps dispel myths and stereotypes commonly associated with extreme sports and the people who participate in them.
The exhibition illustrates that participation in extreme sports requires skill, training, and proper use of specialized equipment. To make smart and calculated decisions, extreme sports athletes are skilled at evaluating risk and remaining calm under intense pressure. The athletes featured are highly skilled professionals who put a great deal of thought, time and training into their actions.
