Thread: Xtreme 30th birthday present?

  1. #1
    Need to get my sister a 30th present and am seriously struggling to find something good.
    At the moment i'm thinking of getting her something to do with an extreme sport as she basically has no fear and quite enjoys random adrenaline based things (climbing, skiing, snowboarding, flying trapeze, skydiving etc). But i can't find any sports which have reasonably priced equipment (pref <£100) and which can be done in Hong Kong which is where she'll be based for the next few years.

    Any suggestions??? Or does anyone know of a good alternative birthday present?

    Closest i've come is probably a mountain board, but i'm not sure i'd be that keen on doing that, or having to do all the walking uphill. Does anyone have a mountain board, and if so are they worthwhile and is it a problem if my sisters never skateboarded before?

    If it were most anyone but yourself, Ian, I'd probably go the obscene route.

    As I like you, I really can't contribute much.

    Except to say that all women like the Nintendo Wii.

    It's got something to do with the grip/motion factor.

    Buy her a crossing to the mainland - I hear that can be kind of risky.

    Buy her a good pair of climbing shoes. Women like shoes, plus they're practical.

    What about sphering?

    It's reasonably cheap and it's great fun, and not for the faint hearted.
