This couple just wanted to enjoy their day of parasailing, and for the most part, they did. That is until the rope connecting them to the boat snapped mid-flight! This is normally the part where most of us would start panicking, but not this couple. In fact, they give a thumbs up as they're being dragged along the sea! Eventually, they were rescued and authorities are looking into this incident.

Dust devils can be a huge concern for paragliders who travel to Laragne Chabre, and this man found that out first hand. A huge gust of wind sends him flying into the air before he's ready and tosses him around like a rag doll. Luckily this guy is a professional and with the help of staff via a radio, he regains control and makes a safe landing.

Guy Films Friend's Paragliding Disaster & 'Don't Go Kayaking Waterfalls'

It's no secret that extreme sports come with risks, but it's easy enough to assume you'll never be "that guy" on the news. Unfortunately, Brazilian daredevil Leonardo Lean Gomes' luck ran out when a sudden gust of wind blew him off Pedra Bonita peak with only a partially-open paraglider as buddy Lorran Pablo records the incident. Although Leonardo's malfunctioning chute still works enough to slow his disastrous plummet to a barely less-than-deadly landing, rescue crews take more than four hours to locate the seriously injured adventurer hidden in the woods. Only the most experienced kayakers would even consider paddling over a towering 80-foot waterfall, but Bren Orton and his crazy kayaking friends aren't about to let a little acrophobia get in the way of an extreme challenge like this! Too bad for Pirmin that the Eksingdalen river has a few nasty tricks up her sleeve. View Now

Paraglider Takes Relaxing In The Sky To A Whole New Level

And now for your daily dose of "huh?" Paraglider Hasan Kaval has basically created a living room in the sky by fastening a couch, a TV and even a lamp to his parachute. Based on the guy's calm demeanor, you'd never guess he was soaring hundreds of feet up in the air — but then again, the level of chill required to kick back on a flying couch without a harness in the first place is probably pretty high.
