5. Big Air Skateboard Final
Boarders start down a 62-foot megaramp to choose one of three launch ramps, shoot a gap of 50 or 75 feet to a less-mega ramp — possibly incorporating a spin, kick flip or shove-it on the way — then soar up a 27-foot-high quarterpipe that can launch them an additional 20 feet above the lip.
From there, riders have the option of spinning, flipping, tail-grabbing or just narrowly avoiding dismemberment.
