Freestyle sports are a type of sport with few formalized rules or documented sporting regulations other than the standard safety methods. Hence, athletes or players compete using their idiosyncrasies and individual styles. Freestyle sports were first created for recreational purposes, having fun, or improving personal skills and were often inclusive of men and women from diverse backgrounds and age groups. Freestyle sports give athletes enough latitude to experiment with tricks of varying difficulties which determine the way points are awarded in competitions. These tricks include a range of aerobatic movements such as those seen in skiing, skateboarding, amateur style wrestling, and swimming. Each different sport requires custom equipment to perform these tricks and shows.
