Many “normal” skiers, snowboarders and cyclists compete in professional classes during events. But they make almost no money from their “profession.” For these folks, Xtreme Sports Insurance offers supplementary event insurance that costs less than $20. The policy covers out-of-pocket medical expenses for an injury that is sports-related. The company calls it “affordable accident insurance for extreme and action sports athletes.”
The Draper, Utah, company, launched last spring, aims to provide “affordable, user-friendly accident and injury insurance to a population who are notoriously uninsured and regularly injured.” This includes “extreme sports participants,” the company cites.
Whether you compete as a “pro” or not, if you’re under-insured, XSI is an inexpensive way to carry a small amount of protection each time you head outside to play. www.xsinow.com
