Action sports stars are pretty radical human beings. But most of them can’t write tweets for shit.

No, really. Broadly speaking there tend to be two types:

1) The Twitter accounts are so heavily monitored by their agents (and probably written by them too) that they’re just one long spiel of dull sponsor-loving links. These are mostly boring as hell!

2) The Twitter accounts where the star themself sounds off, or just brain burps into the Twittersphere, often with unintentionally hilarious consequences. These are much more interesting, as these 10 classic moments show…

1) Anastasia Ashley thinks about changing her dating tactics

Errr… yes? (Cue every man in the world frantically swiping right)

2) Downhill Mountain bike joker Josh Bryceland shows how to win over the ladies

Josh Bryceland may win legs of the Downhill World Cup, but he’s also got a flair for the ridiculous…

3) BMX hardman Harry Main reveals his soft side

Harry Main: The tattoo-covered, heavy metal loving, Liverpudlian BMX rider… who really loves his mum’s dog and has the same grasp of grammar as an 11-year-old girl.

4) Freestyle skiier Tom Wallisch is impressed by the simple things in life

He’s won multiple X Games and Dew Tour gold medals and travelled the world as a professional skiier. But the little things never cease to amaze this American…

5) Surfer John John Florence gets confused

Hawaiian native John John Florence has been pipped as the “next Kelly Slater” but he gets a little confused when left on dry land too long.

You don’t say?

6) Surfer Joel Parko demonstrates a flair for the mundane

The man has taken on some of the heaviest waves in the world and beaten Kelly Slater at Pipeline. Good thing he puts all the interesting stuff on Twitter!

7) Skateboarder Nyjah Huston suffers from #firstworldproblems

Oh, Nyjah we’re playing the world’s smallest violin for you.

8) Olympic snowboard gold medallist Sage Kotsenburg demonstrates his decent sense of humour

The best quote of his from the Sochi Olympics – on prepping for the slopestyle finals: “I was eating mad snacks. Chocolate. Onion rings. Chips. We were chilling really hard. Then we fell asleep watching Fight Club. Getting stoked, you know?”

9) Snowboarder Shaun White gets all philosophical

Or should that be #ponce?

10) Surfer Jordy Smith overshares about his lovelife

So cheesy you can smell the gorgonzola… no-one needs to know this stuff!
