Active + Adventure

Adrenaline High

by Sarah Tuff

Okay, we admit it. We've dreamed of conquering Jaws on a surfboard, hitting three g's in a jet, and doing layups in the NBA. While we may be a few genes short and many years too late from becoming the next Laird Hamilton or Michael Jordan (or even Maverick from Top Gun), there's still time to pick up the action-hero skills of surfing and basketball handling—including air combat. The solution is to go back to school—one you'll actually enjoy. These 12 adventure-minded courses take place from Mexico's beaches to the savannahs of South Africa, and they'll ramp up your skill set. While you shouldn't expect lucrative contracts afterward—though it would be nice—we reckon they'll leave you feeling like a million bucks.
