EGOR POPERTINSKY – REAL EXTREME!

Not so long ago, many in our country perceived windsurfing as something distant, fabulously beautiful from another life, another world. Beautifully built, tanned young people against the background of blue waves and the ocean breeze turned this sport into something inaccessible, beyond the control of a simple person. And what was the surprise when the name of our compatriot – St. Petersburg guy Yegor Popretinsky was found in the top ten windsurfers of the planet.

First steps

Egor was born in Leningrad on October 8, 1986. The ordinary life of a simple St. Petersburg teenager made a sharp turn at the age of twelve.

ALEXANDER POLLI – REAL EXTREME!

BASE jump is insanely interesting and exciting, but also extremely dangerous. Each of the basic jumpers risks taking another jump. Unfortunately, not everything goes according to plan, which leads to terrible consequences. This is exactly what happened to the famous young 31-year-old Alexander Polly, whose jump in the French Alps near Chamonix was the last fatal for him on August 22, 2016. How did he embark on this path and how did it all begin?

Alexander Polly, future pioneer of skydivers and skydivers, was born in Norway on June 26, 1985. Unfortunately, practically nothing is known about his childhood and youth, as well as about when he immediately began to practice ski jumping. But, of course, he became the most enthusiastic base jumper and wingsuit. He had dual citizenship – he was a citizen of both Norway and Italy. Continue reading

Anyone who is at least a little engaged or interested in mountaineering, probably knows such a famous person as Reinhold Messner. This person is a true legend, some achievements, which so far no one could and did not dare to repeat.

This man in his entire life conquered many mountain peaks, and he made his first ascent in 1970 as a student. Also at this age, namely 26 years old, he ended up in the Himalayas with his younger brother Gunther. Their goal was to climb Nangaparbat.
