If you often waterskiing, try something a little different. Wakeboarding mimics snowboarding on the water.
A motorboat toes you with a rope, the same way you would waterski. But, for this aquatic sport, you stand with both feet strapped to one board.
Getting up on a wakeboard takes some practice initially, but staying up is the real challenge. It requires leg strength, balance, and agility.
This board allows you to get a little more air on the wake than waterskis. You will find it challenging and exciting.
If you own a vacation home you may want to look at scarab boats for sale. These sporty luxury boats work perfectly for this type of excitement!
2. Scuba Diving
Scuba diving allows you to view the world from a fish’ perspective. With specialized gear, you can reach greater depths and stay down longer to really observe sea life in their natural habitat.
Do not buy all the gear and think you can simply jump in. Breathing underwater and swimming to greater depths poses unique challenges. Plus, diving blindly, without knowing the area puts you at risk.
Take classes with a certified dive instructor and tour the sea bottom with a guide for the best experience. Check out some of the most beautiful dive sites in the world!
If you want your vacation to provide a little more relaxation, try paddleboarding. It still gives you a fantastic workout, but this water sport activity allows you to go at your own pace.
To paddleboard, you stand on a platform that resembles a surfboard. But instead of riding big waves, you can use an oar to glide across stiller water.
4. Kite Surfing
This extreme sport puts you at the mercy of the wind, like a sailboat! You simply stand on a surfboard, holding onto a gigantic kite sail, and let the wind whip ou through the waves.
Like surfing, it takes practice to balance yourself and maneuver the waves. If you really want a rush, hit large wakes to fly through the air! This will make for amazing conversation at the water cooler next Monday!
5. Jet Skiing
No watercraft catches the waves quite like a jet ski! This is one of the best water sports for a group with free time on a business trip!
You can all ride together to site see. But, break off into the open water to hit waves head-on and catch some air!
You may also want to race each other and feel the speed of this craft over smoother water. It can literally take your breath away!
