Despite a wide variety of websites promoting completely different brands, products and sports there are some common traits that stand out. Here are the three main ingredients I think make extreme sports design so good!

Extreme Sports Photography

Photography

Cutting edge photography is a key aspect of the industry that captures both the action and the raw lifestyle of the sport. Many of the sites make great use of huge photography as part of the design that generates huge visual interest and takes you right into the scene.

Extreme Sports Video

Video and Flash

With widespread support for video and flash nowadays, sites are making the most of the technologies. Interactive interfaces and moving imagery bring some interaction to the website allowing the user to experience the excitement first hand.

Extreme Sports Graphic Design

Creative Graphic Design

The extreme sports industry has always been open to creative design and illustration. This inspiring design work also makes its way into the website design with great visual imagery and typography making up large parts of the interface.

    This is a very very complete list. If I had 2 or 3 of these tools even 6 months ago a lot of time could have been saved. A great list for people who are just learning CSS. Thank you!

    As a snowboarder and surfer, I love the action sports industry as well as graphic design and how the two fit together. I always look forward to when the snowboarding brands put their new sites up in late summer. Nice article highlighting some of the best sites.
