Too much not-awesome news clogging your Facebook feed lately? In need of a pick-me-up? The folks behind People Are Awesome have just what you need: their annual round-up of ordinary people doing extraordinary shit.
All year round, People Are Awesome features videos of the most epic feats in parkour, skateboarding, tricking, cliff diving, wingsuit flying, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, BMX, acrobatics, calisthenics, cheerleading, freestyle football, basketball dunks, extreme pogo, freerunning, cycling, kayaking, frisbee trick shots, golf, martial arts, base jumping, and… well, pretty much anything else that falls under the category of “awesome.”
The end of 2016 saw the year’s absolute best-of-the-best compiled into a single remarkable clip. Set to a soundtrack of OneRepublic, the video showcases all kinds of exceptional (and exceedingly fit) humans performing stunts that defy both physics and death.
Basketball dunks via rope swing? It’s got that. Tricking on a beach with yoga balls? It’s got that. Two-year-olds wakeboarding? It’s even got that.
Also ping pong trick shots, hoverboard contortion, mini martial artists, wakesurfing dogs, a water bottle flip, and plenty more to get your adrenaline pumping.
The year may have been dubbed a raging dumpster fire by many, but this video proves 2016 was still an excellent year for awesomeness.
