After a month of speculation, Lexus has finally shown off its real, live, working hover board. It may not be Back to the Future, but it’s still a mighty satisfying ride. As it turns out, the future is hard; professional skateboarder Ross McGouran has plenty of spills on the way to mastering even basic moves. That’s perhaps not surprising, given that riding the Lexus hover board is basically like straddling a maglev train. Coming soon to a store near you: Hyper-conductive Woodgrain Board – FREE.

Just another day in the office for top downhill skier Aksel Lund Svindal, and World Rally Championship (WRC) driver Andreas Mikkelsen. The two champions met up in the Southwest of Norway for a race to the bottom of the mountain, burning rubber and jumping over road gaps to catch a departing ferry.

The Triple Crown of Slopestyle kicked off in France with the second stop of Crankworx in Les Deux Alpes. Big air, big crashes, and some of the most progressive riding ever seen on two wheels went down, but it’d be Brett Rheeder who’d lay down a near-flawless run to claim the overall win. Take a look back at all the most dramatic moments of the event captured in super slow motion.

“We’ve got a special video this time. My filmer Scott Pattenden stitched together a little behind the scenes video from one of the main clips in my most recent edit. In this video I give you a little insight into the day leading up to the clip were I land a bunnyhop backflip into a 30ft abandoned water reservoir.” – Ryan Taylor.

60 Minutes secured an exclusive interview with Fanning following his attack, due to air this Sunday. Reporter Peter Stefanovic followed Fanning on his return to the water at Hastings Point on the Tweed Coast – a move that would take nerves of steel at the best of times.

Not too long ago, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling came to the defense of Serena Williams on Twitter after somebody said she was “built like a man.” Now, if you dare try to say something like that about Ronda Rousey, we’ll say a prayer for you because athletes, like LeBron James and fellow MMA fighter Conor McGregor, wouldn’t dare step into the Octagon with Rousey, so what makes you so special? But just in case you want to call Rousey’s body “masculine,” she has a message for you.

In this latest video, Brumotti performs stunt after stunt while out road riding, working out in a gym and even riding the downhill runs at the Mottolino Livigno Bike Park. Who says road bikes can’t huck?

Deep inside some top secret sports blog laboratory within the internet’s most secluded mountain bunker, a mad scientist stood silently, staring at his work. “She’s perfect,” he remarked about the human woman who was floating inside a large glass cylinder. “Perfect swing, powerful striking ability, effortless follow through,” he said to his assistant. “But sir, why did you make her so hot?” the assistant asked. “Clicks, Kevin,” the scientist said. “Mad clicks.” This is how we imagine former San Diego State University golfer Paige Spiranac was created, because holy sh*t — that is one good looking athlete.

Last week Teahupoo roared to life with a code orange swell that produced some of the most incredible waves we’ve seen in a very long time. Remember Niccola Porcella’s wipeout?

Wipe

Niccolo Porcella’s world turned upside down this week. Literally. The big wave surfer suffered one of the most gruesome wipeouts you’ll ever see while shredding in Teahupo’o, Tahiti, and after watching the footage, you won’t believe he’s still alive.
