Can you handle it? It’s possibly the most extreme thing you will have come across. In fact, so extremely extreme that I’ve just got to say extreme again in this sentence. It’s mental, it’s dangerous, it’s life-threateningly thrilling.



From the website:

The sport that is ‘extreme ironing’ is an outdoor activity that combines the danger and excitement of an ‘extreme’ sport with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt. It involves taking an iron and board (if possible) to remote locations and ironing a few items of laundry. This can involve ironing on a mountainside, preferably on a difficult climb, or taking an iron skiing, snowboarding or canoeing.

Here’s a sample pic:
