The reason people participate in adventure sports is to challenge themselves, overcome fear, and most importantly have fun.  That is why adventure sports are different than team sports, because even though you might do these sports with other people, it comes back down to you and how far you are ready to push the limit.  Another big factor that plays an important role in these activities are the environmental obstacles and challenges.  Terrain plays a big role in the degree of difficulty and weather can change the situation quite quickly from being safe to dangerous.  In general, adventure sports are a safe and fun way to get out into nature, keep active, challenge yourself, and build self-confidence provided you understand the consequences and fully calculate the level of risk based on your ability.
