We got you on travel. Globetrotting experience out the wazoo. But this beach hazard report…wow! Must know info, esp. for beach bums and big wave chasers. Peep.
Beaches promise sun, surf and sand; everything you need for a paradise vacation or getaway. But all that beauty can be deceiving. Beneath its emerald waves, there can be all kinds of dangers. And it’s not just the water that you may have to worry about. Here are some of the most dangerous beaches found around the world.
Vacations on the beach are one of the most popular choices for winter getaways. Imagining the sun reflecting off the waves and glittering sand beneath your toes. But it’s not always as serene as it appears. Whether it’s dangerous rip tides, shark attacks or massive overcrowding, some beach dreams can soon turn to nightmares. Nestled in some of the most incredible locations around the world, these beaches hide a deadly secret. Before booking your summertime getaway, it may not hurt to do a little research into your destination.
When you look at the parallels between cultures, you learn more about yours as well as theirs. Cuba’s burgeoning skate culture came about as the poor people there becoming practioners, doing their thing in the park, with other people there loving and nurturing something of their own right where it is happening, and the outside world recognizing its beauty and coming to partake. Sounds like Hip-Hop’s beginnings, right? Cuba skate culture is evolving in a way we recognize. Salute! They did not ‘invent’ skating per se, but this is their own flavor. Get a taste of Cuba’s skate scene with the trailer above from VICE SPORTS.
Cuba’s skate scene has no funding, very few resources and not much to speak of in terms of a skate park. But despite those obstacles scene is growing, thanks in part to organizations like Cuba Skate and the kids that want to see it furthered. We travelled with Ishod Wair, Lucien Clarke, Andrew Reynolds and special guest photographer Arto Saari to see the best skate spots that the country has to offer and take note of a vibrant underground skate scene on the verge of change.
Bahahahahahahaha!!!! The graphics and the game horn though! You will forever think differently of ‘The Worm’ after watching this. Think breaking his… um… carrot… THREE TIMES would stop Dennis Rodman’s sex game. Nah. In his words, he is “good to go.”

Okay, VICELAND, we know you always get the full story. But yooooo, this one is over the top.

NBA Standout Dwayne Wade Speaks On Leaving The Heat For The Windy City And Getting A Warm Reception And More (Video)
It’s only a six-minute clip but there is a lot in there (including precious seconds of screen time with gorgeous wifey Gabrielle Union). D Wade joining D Rose in Chicago certainly signals the Bulls desire to win rings, but other things ring true in this clip. Concerned about making the most of his remaining time (even referencing his long-gone youth, when he was ‘able to sit Indian style’ and dream about playing for the Bulls), getting the best contract and competitive situation for himself…all that and more…factored into Dwayne Wade’s decision to make that move from Miami. Watch him talk all about it above.
Dwayne Wade speaks with Cari Champion about his decision to sign with his hometown Chicago Bulls, his welcoming discussion with Jimmy Butler, and what message LeBron James and Chris Paul told him before signing.
(SportsCenter’s Cari Champion is definitely looking lovely in this interview, too. Bonus!)
First of all, it’s sexy Serena on visual So it’s going all the way up! But let’s see what her answers are to the “73 Questions”… because she has put some classic on-camera moments down over the years, too.
On the set of her clothing line debut, Serena Williams talks about the most romantic thing a guy has ever done for her, that time she tried body bowling, and the one sport she’s actually bad at.
The answer on how to celebrate wins though…BAWSE!!
Jumping out of a perfectly working airplane would get a ‘HELL NAW’ from most people. How about jumping out of one during a thunderstorm? We don’t have the words. This maniac Sean MacCormac does though. And there’s video. Check it out.
Jump zones shut down during a thunderstorm because it would be insane for people to jump out of an airplane into one…yet Sean MacCormac is poised to leap from 2 miles above Southwest Florida with laser beams of lightning randomly igniting the sky and no way to tell which direction is safe. He charges out, feet strapped to his board to surf into a hostile thundercloud at speeds up to 130 mph.

Deflategate: Former NBA Player Doug Christie’s Wife Checks His ‘Balls’ To See If He’s Been Cheating (Video)
Drop your draws. Let me check your balls.
Aw hell naw! BALL STATUS CHECK?? Females out here examining dude’s balls to see if they come home empty?

King Build-A-B!tch… BWAAAAAHAHAAA!! Floyd Mayweather is speaking on ALL topics and people – Pacquiao, Trump, Nelly, 50 Cent – no topic is off limits in this five-part series. Each part is about an hour-long. So many wowwww moments like:
Young Thug is extremely talented?
Future was supposed to be signed to Mayweather?
Mayweather Money ain’t like ‘other’ money; neither is his fashion. True Religion, Jordans, that’s for others.
Traveling… Ibiza…. San Trope…. Floyd’s been there and all of there. Not impressed.
To Kanye West: Keep up the good work …really misunderstood.
It’s not all about the money… but he is ‘Money’ Mayweather.
(Biggest ‘wow’ though: Melyssa Ford like WOWWW! Still sexy.)
From the producers of Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Generation Iron, THE HURT BUSINESS details the lives of various martial arts superstars, including Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones, competing in the fastest growing sport in the world and the struggles and triumphs that accompany all careers in cage fighting.
Besides featuring both legends, such as Georges St-Pierre, and up-and-comers in the sport the film covers the history of mixed martial arts fighting, from the coliseums of ancient Greece to modern day venues such as the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, all expertly narrated by Kevin Costner.
Themes of injury both mental and physical are explored and the question is raised; is it worth it to sacrifice one’s mind and body for sport?

Andre Iguodala dropped in The Breakfast Club. He admitted being angry at the team (Golden State Warriors) for even letting the NBA Finals get to a game 7, but he was gracious in defeat. Great interview. Two things: (1) Stop dissing Kyrie Irving and (2) while Lebron James is great, he is “nowhere near Jordan” (wow). Also: Discussion on Kevin Durant joining the GSW, advising players how to invest in technology and more.
Interesting insights shared on Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons’ new HBO talk series. Anthony Anderson and Chris Bosh are the guests in this clip. Bosh with an ‘other side of the coin’ perspective on Kevin Durant moving on from OKC among other things touched on.

Okay, you’ve got your sports other than futbol (e.g. soccer) that claim to be tougher. American football, Australian football, hockey, boxing, mixed martial arts, yada yada, and etcetera. But yooooooo, have you ever seen anything this insane???
Thousands came to witness the latest edition of the traditional ‘Calcio Storico’ (‘historic football’) kick-and-punch-about at the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence.
All the world’s tough-guy sports in one. Gladiator-style sport in Italy. Who’da thunk it, right? More kick-azz football (literally) after the jump.
