A career that engenders flow, focus, intensity

Hey everybody, it's another question in my never-ending search for a career I might enjoy! I'm an avid whitewater kayaker. I love just about everything about it, but I think the thing that makes it most addictive is that the intensity, the problem solving, the physicality, the threat of consequences all come together to put me in a state of flow
. Are there careers that could give me some of that?

This is not, by the way, about fear - which I don't enjoy. It's about "the healthy middle ground that exists between boredom and fear," as it was expressed in a Rapid Magazine article I read recently.
Also, somewhat relevant: I'm male, 37, have ADHD.
