Granted, not so much a combination of two sports, more of an unusual take on one, but this little beauty simply had to make the list.
Freestyle canoe is a sport where competitors are judged on the way they control their boat while manoeuvring it around the water to a musical track of their choice.
Above you see Marc Orstein, played here by Pete Townshend, control his canoe, and spin it around, while Lady In Red by action sports favourite Chris de Burgh plays in the background. If you’re not moved to tears, seek immediate medical attention.
Chances of taking off: 7/10
You might think this is a little tame, but we do’t think it’s impossible that this could be big. Granted, in it’s current start, it’s a little genteel, but imagine the ante being upped: 1660 spins and water fall drops, while the latest Skrillex track pounds away in the background, and the sponsors will come running. Pastrana will have this shit on lock by 2016.
