The Extreme Dreams website was launched in 2002, (4 years before the BBC's TV series of the same name), and is based around the adventures of registered blind extreme sports enthusiast, adventurer, and public speaker, Dean "Deano" Dunbar.
The adventures and extreme sports featured on the left hand side are not a random list, but have all been done by Dean, (The Blind Man), and some have included world firsts.
Please note, Extreme Dreams does NOT offer any activities, but a link to the company we used, (if we used one), can be found at the bottom of most activity pages.

Alternatively, you can go to the links page and find more activities, extreme sports and providers there. 
Extreme Dreams is continually growing as we try more extreme sports and take up new challenges.
