1. Kayaking: Epicocity (above)

Editor's Pick
From multi-tiered waterfalls in Africa to vertical flumes in South America, Eugene, Oregon-based Trip Jennings and his kayaking compadres at Epicocity Films are constantly searching out bigger drops. Using creative angles and P.O.V. cameras in Oregon, Argentina, British Columbia, and Zambia, this custom-edited clip brings you right into the action, as the crew of whitewater junkies score huge, technical, and outright crazy lines. (Thanks to expedition teammate Karl Moser for providing the video.)

2. Slope Flying: Dave Barlia 
It's not surprising that after 18 years of BASE jumping and skydiving, California native Dave Barlia helped pioneer a new approach to plunging toward the Earth—low-altitude BASE jumping aided by a wingsuit. These suits may make jumpers look like flying squirrels, but the extra fabric between the arms and legs acts like wings, enabling increased control and lift. In this video, Barlia takes his wingsuit to Chamonix, France, soaring just a few feet above tree line at a hundred miles an hour (161 kilometers an hour), to perfect the dynamic sport known as "slope flying."  Watch the video >>
