its not a very famous sport, but it is slowly being more recognized thanks to people like kris holm.
its not a high speed sport like motorcross or sky diveing, but it does have the ability to bust sweet moves almost along the lines of skate boarding.
there is lots of spinning of pedals and unicycles, jumping/ hopping around, and lots of grinding.

Step 1: Stuff needed
if you are poor like me and just can't find the money to spend, i recommend just buying a old off road unicycle off ebay , then buy the safety gear as you grow more advance and need it.
if however you have always wanted to try this, and you have the money to spend, buy a brand new kris holm unicycle and all the safety gear.
there are still lots of things i want for my unicycle, but i made sure i got a good seat, wheel and pedals, because that is most important for me.
the needed safety gear is:
shin guards ( i never got these and i regret it every time i fall off, nothing funner than holes ripped in your shins from the pedals)
wrist guards (i got these instantly after falling off and damaging my wrists, i decided unlike every other rider i don't want mine broken)
and a helmet (it depends what style of riding you are doing, but its always good for starters)
