Here at Thrill Appeal our mission is to make action sports and outdoor adventure super accessible. We believe that everyone should be able to experience and enjoy all that the world of action sports can offer, whether they are young or old. We knew that we wanted to help people learn more about these types of sports and activities, so we had an idea for a site that could become a repository of useful and fun information.

Thrill Appeal was born out of our passion and enthusiasm for outdoor sports and fun. We aim to be the place to visit when learning about outdoor action sports and adventure. We have a wide range of different types of information and content already on the site about numerous topics like bodyboards, kayaks, bikes, wetsuits, scooters, snowshoes, avalanche beacons and so much more. If it’s got to do with outdoor adventure sports, we have covered it or we will be covering it!

We offer up in depth how to guides, gear reviews, and comparisons on some of the most interesting sports activities in the world. Whether you want to learn how to skateboard, find the best scooter, or the learn the difference between a longboard and regular skateboard we’ve got you covered.

What is it about these types of sports that are so appealing? There are a number of things, to be honest. Many people today love the idea of getting away from their screens and heading out into the natural world to enjoy all that it offers. With this site, we’ve provided you with the guidance you need to enjoy adventure sports and open up a world of possibilities.

Consider all of the stress that the average day brings. You have a lot that you have to worry about from work to your social life and beyond. Living life in a state of stress isn’t good for you. Getting outside and enjoying life by experiencing a sport that you enjoy can help to reduce your stress and simply make you feel good. When was the last time you were actually able to enjoy yourself? Check out all of the gear and sports that we cover and fine one or two things that you think you’ll love.

No matter your age and no matter your favorite types of activities, we believe that there is some type of action sport for everyone. It might be biking, it might be skiing, or it might simply be traveling around on a scooter. There’s something for all.

Outdoor adventure sports push you to learn more not only about the activity itself but about yourself and your unlimited abilities. They expand your horizons and help you live for the moment.

We believe it’s important to cherish the moment and truly live the now as best as we can. Fortunately, we cover a wide range of different activities that can help you live in the here and now and get the most out of life.

Maybe you want to take a trip to the mountains to go hiking or even snowshoeing in the winter.

Think about all of the great adventures that you can have if you just decide to get the gear you need and get up and out of the house. Getting out and being active is healthy for your body, your mind, and your spirit.

There is an infinite amount of places to see and things to explore and learn. We are hungry to learn and grow and hope that those that visit Thrill Appeal can enjoy the journey and hopefully learn something along the way.

Mike Bran

mike branI grew up doing all kinds of sports, from soccer to swimming to basketball. I had a lot of energy so my mother would put me in everything. As I got older I quickly gravitated toward action sports. It started with skateboarding and biking and evolved from there. I grew up loving those old school 80s skateboard videos and BMX. I still feel like those are some of the coolest videos and athletes I’ve ever seen.

My other interest include music, art, and fashion.

Favorite music genres would include hip hop, punk, reggae, classic rock and soul (even some 80s). I love live concerts. Nothing beats the energy of a live concert. I believe that music and sports go hand in hand, particularly adventure sports. Just look at the videos you see today on YouTube of action sports. Most of the time they are set to some great music.

As for fashion I really enjoy the classic things that never go out of style. A nice white t shirt, selvedge blue jeans, and a nice pair of boots or sneakers.
