Extreme Dreams


The Extreme Dreams website was launched in 2002, (3 - 4 years before the BBC's TV series of the same name was made), and is based around the adventures of registered blind extreme sports enthusiast, adventurer, and occasional public speaker, Dean (Deano) Dunbar.
The adventures and extreme sports featured on the left hand side are not a random list, but have all been done by Deano, (The Blind Man), and some have included world firsts.
Please note, Extreme Dreams does not offer any activities, but a link to the company we used can be found at the bottom of most activity pages.
Alternatively, you can go to the links page and find more activities, extreme sports and providers there. 
Extreme Dreams is continually growing as we try more extreme sports and take up new challenges.

Two BASE Jumpers Throw Themselves Off 48th Floor In The Heart Of London | EpicTV Choice Cuts

We recently received an anonymous video from two London BASE jumpers who had just completed a pretty cloak and dagger stunt from a classy London rooftop bar. Their mission was to find an un-jumped exit within London city limits. Finding a tall building to BASE jump from wasn't hard but finding one they could get access to... well, that was another story. Eventually they found a swanky rooftop bar near Canary Wharf which fit the bill perfectly. They did the proper reconnaissance, then they marched in and jumped out the window. Maybe not quite as peaceful and contemplative as opening a new exit in nature, but it makes for one helluva story.
