Extreme Ironing (or EI) is an extreme sport and a performance art in which people take an ironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing.
Part of the attraction and interest the media has towards extreme ironing seems to centre on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not.
These performances can take place like a mountainside of a difficult climb, a forest, on top of large bronze statues, in the middle of a street; underwater and under the ice cover of a lake.
Extreme ironing carries on a tradition of British eccentricity.
You need only two things for this sport. They are iron and lots of imagination.
