Crazy, Extreme, Insane, Weird… You be the Judge of this Adventure Craze…

The adventure sport of Extreme Ironing is said to have begun in 1997 by Phil Shaw, nicknamed “Steam”, who arrived home to a pile of ironing, however, preferred to be out rock climbing instead. He decided to combine the two… Phil defines the latest danger sport as “combining the thrill of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt”! Now we’ve heard it all!!

Some of the weird and wonderful locations where this extreme adventure activity has taken place include rock faces, precarious mountain tops, underwater, while skiing, in a canoe, in the middle of the M1 motorway and even whilst parachuting. Where will they dream of next?…

Extreme Ironing even makes the list of the World’s 20 Ultimate Extreme Adventures.
