Five Totally Rad Outdoor Equipment That Will Excite Your Inner Kid
Posted on by Beckworth & Co
A lot of us live fairly tame, even mundane lives where nothing exciting can happen for days or even weeks. This unavoidable consequence of modern life can be torturous to those who are “born to be wild”. These children at heart find it difficult to sit still, they’re always daydreaming of being outdoors and clear blue skies. They hate to be confined and are always longing for an adrenaline rush, the wind hitting their face, their hair standing on end.
The good thing is when you’re already an adult, nothing can stop you from doing extreme outdoor activities during your free time. It’s likely that you are now bigger, faster, and stronger than your kid self. Plus, you no longer have to ask your parents to buy you equipment! If -you want to relive the excitement of your childhood days (provided that your hips and knees can still take it), here are five absolutely rad outdoor equipment you should buy.
Kites have always fascinated kids of all ages and genders and now that you're an adult, you can get an oversized one that can even pull you on your skateboard or paddleboard! If a parafoil is too much, then what you need is a stunt kite so you can catch some air while keeping your feet on the ground.
Good control, great starter stunt kite
High quality construction
Needs lots of wind to be able to get off the ground
Some customers complained that their kits broke after a crash
If you thought skateboarding is extreme, then you haven't tried mountainboarding yet. With an all-terrain mountainboard, you won't need a half pipe anymore, you can conquer any mountain slope and only you get to decide your limit.
If you ever wondered how it feels to have superhuman legs, you merely need to get a pair of jump stilts. With something that will allow you to jump-run like a video game character, it's difficult to find a reason why you should not get one.
Loads of fun, a bit safer than a pogo stick
Comes with knee braces, elbow pads, and a how to video
Top straps and accessories feels somewhat cheap
You have to wear extra padding to avoid getting blisters below the knee
Somewhat bulky on the side, can be difficult to put legs together
