Travis Pastrana is a man of many talents; in 2006 he put his name on the map with the world’s first double backflip on a motorbike at the X Games.

Augustine Pulu produced the biggest hit of the Sydney Sevens. Although controversy reigns as to how New Zealand ultimately came to win the Sydney Sevens, there can be no denying the ferocity of Augustine Pulu’s hit on American flyer, Carlin Isles.

Golf Digest describes LDRIC as “the go-to device for equipment and ball-testing in the golf industry. Not only is its swing sound and fluid, but it can replicate hooks, slices and other flaws inherent to the average golfer.” But it doesn’t wear brightly coloured pants. So at least human golfers still have that going for them.

After two years of tinkering and experimenting Swiss freeskier Nicolas Vuignier just shared a video of what he calls a centriphone, a device that works like a sling to hurl his iPhone 6 through the air while he skis down a mountain. Played back in slow motion the footage is incredible as Vuignier remains perfectly centered in a dramatic 360° loop.
