British snowboarder Jamie Barrow uses handheld electric thrusters from Dream Science Propulsion to reach great speeds while zooming across a frozen lake in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The thrusters function in much the same way as jet engines by rotating fans at around 30,000 RPM to produce a narrow column of air that propels it.
Luckily for Eric Hjorleifson, the avalanche that he started by going down a big mountain pillow line doesn’t fully consume him, leaving him relatively unscathed.

John Scott is one of the toughest fighters in the NHL, based on his incredible size (6-foot-8, 265 pounds, 120 Kilograms) and overwhelming reach. Despite all that, New York Islanders forward Justin Johnson dropped his gloves with Scott for a first-period fight in Sunday’s regular-season finale. After the Buffalo Sabres enforcer landed a few solid jabs, Johnson connected with a powerful left-handed punch that sent Scott to the ice. Scott laughed it off as he got up and skated to the penalty box. He was just as surprised as everyone else at what happened.

What happens when you add footage from The Masters doctored to make it look like it’s taking place on a miniature golf course. You get the best damn thing you’ve seen today.
