If you see paragliding videos exclusively here on RTM, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it looks much easier than it is in real life. Case in point, one woman filmed her struggle to get off the ground in Uetliberg, Switzerland. At first, it took her a few moments to get airborne but once she did, then she had a whole new problem. She flew right into the trees. We’d hang up our parachute for the day if this were us.

Next, we have an update to a crazy RNLI rescue we brought you way back in January. A pair of paragliders had fallen into the seas around East Sussex. The RNLI managed to rescue the paragliders just in time for Christmas Eve. Now the rescuers and survivors are speaking about their harrowing experiences.

RNLI Rescues Stranded Windsurfer & Flipping Out On The Waves

We love the heroes of the volunteer rescuers from the RNLI. This time they were alerted to a pair of kitesurfers who had to swim to shore and one more who was still stranded in choppy waters. So the rescuers boarded their lifeboats and found the exhausted windsurfer struggling to keep his head above water. They were able to pull the man on board and bring him back safely. Switching gears, let's talk about a trip to the ocean that went a lot smoother. Lift foils are the kind of surfboard that doesn't make sense to us, but people like Tituoan Galea have completely mastered this type of surfing as he demonstrated in French Polynesia. The stunts and backflips he can do are perfect for capturing amazing drone footage. View Now

Tightrope Walker Is Blown Away In The Wind & Something's Wrong With That Golf Club

You know how they say if at first you don't succeed, try, try again — well this guy should've given up the first time. A tightrope walker was 15 feet in the air on a windy day, trying to make it across the line. That's when he first stumbled off the rope. Determined to make it across again, he climbs up but falls even harder in round two. Meantime, a golfer completely failed in the funniest way during this difficult shot. Professional golfer Jada Lalita Patipaksiri was trying to save par by hitting the ball around a giant tree. But during her follow through, this golfer's club cracked in half and lost its battle against mother nature. View Now
