Water Sports to Try this Summer
Summer is the best time to try new hobbies and explore the outdoors in ways you never have before. The sun is hot; the wind is blowing — it’s the perfect environment to get active and cool off in the water! Water sports are for all ages and have a variety of physical difficulty levels. It’s time to soak up that vitamin D and get your hair wet. Try out one of these five water sports to get moving this summer!
Kayaking is a great first adventure for newbies getting into water sports. A kayak is a one-person enclosed vessel that uses a double-bladed paddle to steer and direct in the water. This low-impact activity can improve your aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility. Kayaking can be done as a hobby or as a competitive water sport. You can paddle on rivers, lakes and at sea. Be sure to stay hydrated and pack a bottle of AmplipHy Alkaline Water to quench your thirst.
Attention all THRILL-SEEKERS: If you’re searching for something extra fun to do on the water, you should consider riding a jet ski. Jet skis are not only an adrenaline rush but also promote overall health, including cardiovascular benefits, muscle building and improved balance. For those who don’t have access to a dock or do not own a jet ski, keep an eye out for water sport equipment rentals the next time you’re at the beach.
Looking for an easy introduction to boarding behind a boat? Look no further! Kneeboarding is the perfect towed water sport to build confidence on the rope. It is considered one of the easiest towed water sports to learn and is a great first waterboarding hobby to master before moving on to advanced sports.
The sport of stand-up paddleboarding or popularly seen as ‘SUP’ is a relaxing escape after a long day at the office or a stressful evening. SUP is beginner-friendly, an excellent low-impact activity and is an extremely safe water sport to build balance and enjoy nature. Don’t forget to wear a lifejacket and store a bottle of Absopure All-Natural Spring Water in your dry pack to stay hydrated for the ride.
Fishing is another accessible water sport that is inexpensive and perfect for the whole family. It can be as simple as throwing a line off the beach, casting over a bridge or scheduling an offshore charter adventure. Fishing can be an incredibly peaceful sport but also packed with action. If you’re planning a fishing trip, it’s important to research your area’s fishing laws before heading out for a fresh catch.
Be adventurous and try something new this summer with these water sports! Make it a group outing or go solo—no matter what, setting a goal to branch out and trying something different is a great way to challenge your body and have fun.
