In no particular order:

1. Off-road karting. This is a top gift for a surge of adrenalin from the get-go. It places the rider in a monster of a kart and then challenges them to go at ridiculous speeds over rough terrain. Marvellous!

2. Clay pigeon shooting. For those who are stuck for what to buy teenagers who had done most things, clay pigeon shooting is a brilliant idea. Not only does it get them away from the computer and out into the fresh air, it will surprise them just how much they enjoy the experience.

3. Zorbing. A rollercoaster ride of emotions. The gift of a whirl in a zorb is like Christmas wrapped up into a large plastic ball. And, it gave the voucher holders something to look forward to after Christmas.

4. Horse Riding. The RSPCA warns against dogs as Christmas presents as they are often abandoned by Boxing Day. Here is an animal that is happy to be the centre of attention for just one day. Horse riding lessons.

5. Showboarding. Guarantee a white Christmas with a snowboarding lesson at a top indoor centre. This is a great introduction to the sport. A gift idea for any age. 

6. Skiing. A romantic gift idea. Many people like to go away skiing between Christmas and Easter, so join the jet set and take to the slopes (in the UK).

7. Paintball. When the fights break out at Christmas and you feel like shooting someone – do it! Get moving, hiding and shooting. Paintballis a great energy release for everyone aged 12yrs and over, and it will burn some off those pesky calories too.

8. Microlighting.  Microlighting gives you the same sensation. Take to the skies and let the crazy world below just drift away.

9. Segway. Oh yes! This is a superb gift, and an activity that very few people have tried.  You will be top of the nice list for this gift, that is for sure.

10. Anything they fancy. Can’t decide what on earth to give from all the incredible options? Easy, give an Activity Passport and let them choose themselves. Last on this list, but probably the best gift of all.

Women in extreme sports. Can extreme sports show football the way forward?

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 No Comments

While football hit a spectacular own goal with Sky Sport’s presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys loosing their jobs over dismissive comments about women officials in football, Adrenamag asks if, when it comes to sexism, extreme sports can show the way forward to traditional sports like football? Unlike football, it doesn’t take long to find high-profile women at the top in the world of extreme sports. Here are some extreme sports stars who the former Sky Sports presenters may want to follow now they have more time on their hands.

1. Motor sport star Alice Powell. In January Alice Powell was named the British Woman Racing Drivers Club Elite Gold Star Winner for her success and achievement in 2010. It is the second year in succession she has won the award.

Presenting the award to the former karting star was the BBC1 Formula One TV presenter Jake Humphrey. Jake said: ‘I really do think it’s about time that women who are making waves in motor racing are recognised at the very top. So good luck in 2011.’

This year Alice hopes to compete in the Formula Renault UK Championship, which receives LIVE ITV coverage and crowds at the track that match figures of attendance at an average Premier League Football game. If you are a woman who is interested in karting and would like to know where Alice started click here.

2. Italian women clay pigeon shooters. Italy is home to some of the world’s top women clay pigeon shooters. Katiuscia Spada won the Skeet Women ISSF World Cup Final in Izmir, Turkey, in 2010. It’s not the first time the Italian police officer has been seen on the medal winners’ podium in the last three years; she won the Olympic silver medal in Beijing behind fellow Italian Chiara Cainero. Skeet is a clay pigeon discipline where clays are thrown by two machines for the shooter to kill. If you want to try clay pigeon shooting, click here.

3. Water sports super star, Kristin Boese. German Kristin Boese is a legend in women’s water sports. Twice women’s world kitesurfing champion, she has been nominated for world sailor of the year. The author of several books, she has also recently launched a modelling career. If you want to try water sports, click here.

4. Archery hot shot. Twenty-six year-old Nicky Hunt is targeting more medals in 2011. Finishing 2010 in number one position in the FITA world rankings, she helped the English team win the women’s compound team event then added the individual gold medal a day later.

5. Women skydivers. It’s known as the world’s biggest pink cloud with 181 women skydivers filling the Californian sky in 2009. Led by Kate Cooper-Jensen, one of the foremost skydivers in the world, Jump for the Cause was co-founded with Mallory Lewis, after her mother, legendary puppeteer Shari Lewis, lost her battle with cancer in 1998. Events in 1999, 2002 and 2005 raised a combined total of over $1 million and broke the previous world records with 119 women in 1999, 131 women in 2002,151 in 2005 and 181 women in 2009.
