The Effect of Duration of Extreme Sports Involvement on the Perception of These Sports to be Extreme
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the duration of extreme sports involvement has an effect on the perception of these sports to be extreme. In line with this objective, 6 extreme sportsmen, selected by judgement sampling method and participated in different extreme sports, were involved in this study. In the study, the interview method, which is a qualitative data collection method and based on verbal communication, was used and the sound recording of dialogues was made. Consequently, it is seen that as the time spent on extreme sports increases, so does the gain in experience, so, extreme sportsmen avoid taking unnecessary risks, and that a decrease in the risk of accident in these sports cause people not to perceive them as extreme as in the first day, and seek for new extreme sports.
