It seems that creating crazy new extreme sports is all the rage…and we love it!

Recently we brought to you the ‘human water catapult’, but we may just have found the most astonishing new extreme sport yet.

We give you: Canyon Skiing

Forget the bobsleigh! This is more exciting, outrageous, daring and terrifying.

The sport consists of adrenaline junkies hopping on the back of a Jet Ski and high-tailing it through a narrow canyon – ducking and weaving as they take in the breath-taking scenery whilst ultimately trying to avoid the rockery on either side.

The results are truly astonishing, and, unlike the aforementioned winter pursuit, it can all be done in a pair of shorts.

Canyon skiing may be in its early days, but now that Christian Yellot’s video has gone viral, it surely won’t be too long before crowds gather to get a piece of the action.

What do you think: Is this the coolest new extreme sport yet? Let us know in the comments section below…
