Newest Extreme Sport!

I can't believe people would do this.

As the newest extreme sport, it is more "Titanic" than Olympic. Ice surfing gives you the chance to dice with death while enjoying the planet's ultimate chill-out.
It is not the easiest of pastimes to enjoy. First you have to find a glacier about to "calve," then wait for up to two weeks for a house-sized iceberg to break off before catching the monstrous wake after it hits the water from 500 feet high.
The reward: Sixty seconds of sheer exhilaration as you ride a 25-foot wall of ice-cold water filled with millions of shards of razor-sharp ice, mud, boulders and debris.
