Hockern: The World's Most Extreme Sport

What is more extreme nowadays? Is it skydiving? Bungee jumping? Spelunking? Running on water? No. The most extreme sport in my opinion is Hockern. This sport consists entirely of sitting. Yes, you read right—sitting. Germans had enough of the whole standing up thing, so they decided to move on to sitting and make it totally extreme. Imagine skateboarding mixed with parkour, mixed with looking like an idiot and an awesome person at the same time. Not only are the moves kind of crazy, but everything looks like it’s allowed as long as you end up sitting down in the end. They even make custom chairs for this sport! They look like really awesome and overpriced stools, but I really want one for no good reason at all.

For other extreme sports, just jump on your dog and ride into the sunset, like the people below. Good boy!
