Skateboarders in action.

Vert ramps
Skating pipes like the one in the picture has always been an extreme sport. Riders need sharp skills gained from a lot of dedicated hours at the skate park.

Street skaters
Street tricks are getting more and more extreme. Riding rails and jumping steps means riders must risk injury to get good.

Insane terrain
The most hardcore skaters seek out incredible drops and pipes. The venues can include abandoned power stations and reservoirs. Totally extreme!
