Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you stoked!

There are times when people do things that are so new, so inspirational, so out of this world, that you just can't believe it. It makes you wonder how they even thought up such a ridiculous idea, and what gave them the courage to try it. These next guys are pioneering something they like to call, "liquid mountaineering." Get out and try it.

While the following video's legitimacy may be somewhat debatable, the following sport is the real day. I feel like it is a cross between volleyball, Thailand's Takraw, and Slam Ball. I know neither of these videos have much to do with climbing or skiing, but they are people who are trying new things and keeping it interesting! At the very least, they remind us to lighten up, and I think we all need that from time to time.

So the first video isn't debatable? I thought April Fool's day was over. :)

If you watch it closer, this is certainly a viral advertisement campaign by Hi-Tec. It's pretty clever really.
