7. Street Luging
Street luging is similar to riding a skateboard, with a few key exceptions. First, you’re lying flat on your board instead of standing on it, and second, you’re moving at much higher speeds than a typical skateboarder could ever hope to reach. Gravity plays a big role in this sport, as luging typically starts at the top of a slope of some kind, and speeds can actually exceed 80 miles per hour. When you consider how easy it would be to lose control, or collide with an obstacle or another person, it should come as no surprise that injuries in street luging are far from a rarity.
