This is a great infographic that tells exactly which action sports are the most dangerous. 

  • There is some very interesting information in here like:
  • Skiing is more dangerous than snowboarding
  • Mountain climbing in the Himalayas above 6,000m (20,000ft) gives you a great than 10% chance of death
  • Bungy jumping is safer than bike riding
  • Surfing is so safe its not even on this list!
  • Oh, and smoking…  you don’t wanna smoke

The take away here is really don’t go BASE jumping or to high elevations in the Himalayas, don’t smoke and don’t be fat.  Not too hard, really.
