Every day in America we are subject to what we call "money making sports", but we never really get a glimpse of what life is like for the action sports athlete. This site is dedicated to bringing you stories and information on the lives of many of these athletes on the Central Coast. You don’t have to be sponsored by “Red Bull” or “GoPro” in order to be a stand out action sports athlete, and this site is ready to prove that to you. Dive in to the elements of skydiving, rock climbing, snowboarding and surfing, to see why the men and women of these sports love what they do.
With each sport that athletes know and love, comes the price of injury. Take a look at how each injury is more prevalent in certain sports, and how they are caused. Welcome to Injuries By the Numbers.
