The gist of it was that more and more people are looking for thrills in more and more ingenious ways. These include:
- Helisurfing [surfers are towed into 60 foot waves]irkicking [people shot 25 feet
- Airkicking [people shot 25 feet in the air by a jet of water]mphibious paintballing [like normal paintballing, but on speedboats] and powerbocking [jumping about on spring-loaded stilts].
- Amphibious paintballing [like normal paintballing, but on speedboats] and;

But it was one Dean “Deano” Dunbar, 41, of Blairgowrie in Perthshire, that caught my jaundiced eye. He has clocked up 56 of these sports despite being described as “a registered blind daredevil”. It made us wonder if he was registered as being blind, a daredevil, or a combination of the two.
I wish him luck with his latest daredevil exploit — extreme office chairing. Presumably risking the laser glare of the equality and diversity manager by taking a meeting and referring to himself as “chairman”.
