Hold your breath. Extreme Ironing is here.
*insert drum roll*
It is the most wildly and insanely (and um well…weirdly) dangerous sport in the world.
It’s a life-threatening sport and it requires rigorous practice and efforts (Hey! Ironing clothes is REALLYYY hard, plus the added rules!).
We know you’re wondering what it is but it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s ironing your clothes in “extreme” conditions. Participants just carry their iron boards to excessively severe environments and iron clothes there… yeah you read it right. These environments can be as simple as your street or as dangerous as a mountain top.
The most surprising thing thought is that this sport has been around for almost about 20 years now and people are genuinely crazily enthusiastic about it!
Here are some of the most bizarre portraits of the sport:
While surfing your way across the ocean
While in the sky
Standing on the roof of your car
When you’re climbing down a mountain but ironed clothes are your priority
Standing between two mountains
In the midst of bone-chilling snow
Right in the middle of a frikkin’ desert
While falling/jumping off a cliff… *what is wrong with humanity?*
When you’re busy snowboarding
While you’re underwater (still trying to figure out how this would even work)
Well, if you think about it, this sport is actually a really great way to experience the thrill of insane adventures and at the same time soothe yourself with a finely ironed shirt!
Go participate in the Extreme Ironing Championship immediately (yes, this championship is a legit thing)!
