Good news for adventure sports enthusiasts: Dubai is hosting the Middle East’s first ever dedicated extreme sports exhibition – the Spearo Extreme Sports Expo – introducing adrenaline junkies to the latest the world has to offer in adventure and extreme sporting activities.

Aptly, the expo is held at the drop zone of Skydive Dubai, and takes place from October 9 to 11, offering enthusiasts the chance to get the international and local equipment and brands.

The Expo will also host demonstrations and presentations where visitors can take part in the action. Included in that line up is record freediver Herbert Nitsch (in action below) who is set to speak on October 10 at 7pm about his 2007 win where he plunged to an incredible depth of 214m.

For those who prefer their adrenaline rush on land, there will be equipment for everything from off-roading, kite buggying and motocross to rock climbing, trekking, slacklining and mountain biking.

In the air section, skydiving, paramotor, paragliding and hang gliding will feature among other activities to take people to the skies.

The sea pavilion will showcase a full range of water sports exhibitors including kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, and sailing, as well as sports fishing charters and more. Within the sea pavilion there will also be the ‘One Breath’ exhibition dedicated to the extreme sports of freediving and spearfishing.
