WHY YOU SHOULD TRY WATERSPORTS

Why You Should Try Water Sports

 

When you think of water sports, you can think of one of two things - extreme sports, not suitable for the faint of hearted, or the boats and floats available in the masses when you’re on holiday. Whatever you think of, you’d be right. Water Sports cover such a wide range of activities that something out there will make you want to break out your wetsuits! Whether you’re a strong swimmer or prefer dry land, here is our list of reasons why you should give water sports a go!  

You could go on an adventure at the same time!

 

Imagine jumping in a canoe or paddle boat and getting out to explore stunning blue waters and the wealth of water life that passes underneath you. You don’t have to imagine it. Getting out for a float on crystal waters is very much within your reach while you’re away, and it definitely counts as a water sport - probably. Whether you like diving, or you’d prefer to stay in the safety of a boat, you could see the most beautiful sights that a destination has to offer from the water - and potentially learn a new skill while you’re at it!

It’ll help you stay in shape.

 

Water sports, at their essence, are types of sport. If land-based sports can keep you in shape, water-based sports can too. Paddling on a boat is a great cardio and strength workout, surfing can improve your balance and improve you core muscles, and swimming is perfect for your core and your legs. The risks of injuries through swimming are less than if you went running, for example - and it’s more fun too! 

Just think of the family fun!

 

If you’re taking your kids or any other family members on holiday this year, the family fun you can get out of water sports is endless. From kite surfing for older members, to banana boat rides with the whole family, fun on and in the water doesn’t have to be limited to just swimming at the hotel pool. If you’re traveling with older kids or adult family, scuba lessons are a great way to learn a new skill and see some amazing, unforgettable sights all at the same time. Younger children can have lessons too, of course, but it’s up to you to decide if it’s the right sport for them. The best part is that most hotels will have deals on water sports, especially if you’re near the beach, so make sure you take a look for a more affordable experience. 

There’s something for everyone.

 

Nobody likes everything, it’s just a fact of life. There is always something that someone doesn’t like, but because of the wide range of water sports available, there will always be something that you can do. The variety is endless, with unique and different approaches to interacting with and in the water. Jet skiing or wind surfing might not be our thing, but body boarding or kayaking could be more your speed, and vice versa - and if you just like swimming? That’s perfectly okay too! You could try scuba diving, Island Hopping and more if you want something a little different! 

It’s safer than you think.

 

One of the biggest worries you hear when talking about water sports is the safety element, and whether water sports are safe at all. The water can be scary. It’s an uncontrollable element that covers 70% of our planet, but don’t let that deter you. Water sports have probably been around to some extent as long as humans have, but modern technology and scientific knowledge has only improved safety levels. Safety regulations are constantly being improved, so while something might not have looked safe in previous years, chances are it’s only improving, even as you read this post! 

Water sports are just one of several ways you can enjoy yourself whether you’re on holiday or are lucky enough to live by the coast. If you’re already a fan of water sports, why not try something different this year? Challenge yourself to do something you haven’t done before! And if you’re completely new to water sports? Give it a go. You don’t have to jump in the deep end, but you never know what you’ll enjoy until you try!


JETSKI IS MORE THAN JUST RIDING

Jet Skiing: More Exercise than You Might Think

Jet skiing is a fun and exciting water activity, but did you know that it’s also great exercise? While you might not think so, riding a personal watercraft engages several different muscle groups, making it a wonderful way to work out and keep in shape. Let’s take a closer look at how riding a Jet Ski can help you stay fit.

Improve Endurance

 

Jet skiing on a regular basis – for about 30 minutes a day or more – can substantially improve your overall cardiovascular endurance. In turn, this will give you more sustained energy for a long period of time, allowing you to exercise longer, whether for working out or recreation.

Strengthen Muscles

 

Your legs and arms are the two most used muscles while you are jet skiing. This is done when you are trying to keep your watercraft stable and balanced with your legs, while using your arms to steer the machine and stay on course. These two muscle groups get a workout and they subsequently will become even stronger with more time.

Keeping Balance

 

As you ride the waves while jet skiing, you will encounter many different challenges as you ride above the waves. Some will be calmer, and others will be stronger, and as your body works to stay upright and afloat, it engages many of your core muscles. Riding helps you get better at keeping balance, in the sense that you will be tested with strong waters, but beyond that you also will work out these abdominal muscles, too. You’ll get better at maintaining your equilibrium while also working on getting that six-pack.

Burning Calories

 

In considering your workout, you also want to know how many calories you’re burning. Most people who are actively working toward a fitness goal track the number of calories they burn regularly, and those same people will be excited to know that there’s actually a surprisingly high caloric burn from jet skiing. According to Health Fitness Revolution, the average 150-pound rider will burn a surprising 238 calories during a half-hour ride.

JETSKIING WITH KIDS


Riding Jetski with Kids.

Are you going on a vacation and looking for things to do with the whole family? Don’t cross jet skiing off of your list – you can take your kids along for the ride as long as they have a personal flotation device and are positioned between two adults if they are extremely young. 



Although jet skiing with children can be an enjoyable activity and great experience for all, it does require a little thought, preparation and planning.

 


When to begin? 

 

According to the Coast Guard, your child should be at least 18 pounds and a personal flotation device should be able to fit them properly when going on any boat. If you decide to take children, be sure to take them for a fairly uneventful ride and try to stay within calmer waterways.


Where to put your child? 


The best location for your little one is between two adults if possible. Your child may want to ride upfront to feel the waves splash them, however the possibility of their face coming in contact with the handlebars when you slowdown or hit rough water is fairly high. Even if your child is seated in the middle of two adults, keep the speeds slow and controlled, your child will be thrilled just by being on the Jet Ski.

Practice your response if your child goes into the water.


If your child goes overboard and assuming there are two adults, have the adult in the back seat take control of the situation and inform the driver to stop the engine and remain on the Jet Ski. Before having the adult in the back jump in the water, make sure to check for boat traffic and potential dangers in the water. Next, swim to the child with your head above the water so you can constantly see them, make sure they are okay and help them back to the water craft.

JETSKI SAFETY PRACTICE SAVE LIVES

Jet Ski Safety Practices Save Lives

The sun is blazing, temperatures are climbing and it is watersport season! You’ve invested in fun with your jet ski and are sure to see some very positive returns. But all watercraft sports do require a great deal of care when it comes to your safety and the safety of those around you.

Having fun especially during the holidays, is important and everyone should have a great time. This, however, doesn’t have to mean drinking alcohol or using drugs, especially when operating watercraft or doing your watersports activities. Not only are police enforcement out in full force, patrolling for intoxicated boaters, but more importantly, drinking and boating endangers lives. So the first step in safely operating your watercraft this summer is refraining from substance use.

Also, while on the open water with your jet ski, ensure you are fully aware of your surroundings, constantly scanning for boating traffic and swimmers.  As a further precaution for the sake of swimmers, turn off the engine when mooring or floating in populated swimming area such as beaches and coves.

For your own safety, keep an ignition safety switch lanyard secured to your wrist or life jacket in the event you are ejected from your vessel. Always keep your feet inside the foot runners and both hands on the control bars. Avoiding sharp and dangerous maneuvers is also ill-advised.

Overloading your jet ski is also not recommended. Not only does this actually put you at risk of sinking, many don’t realize water police actually have the authority to cite an overloaded watercraft. You should also never jet ski alone; think “safety in pairs.” Finally maintaining your jet ski motor is imperative. Periodically securing hoses and conducting routine maintenance can ensure you will not be stranded this summer.

Practicing common sense is the most important thing you can do when out on the water. Remembering a few basic principles can mean the difference between a fun day on the water and possible serious injury to yourself and those around you.

OCEAN HEALTH BENEFITS

Ocean Living is More than Just Fun in the Sun.


In the days before modern medicine, all-natural ocean air was considered the cure for almost all illnesses. Science backs this up, concluding a variety of health benefits from moist, salty air off the Atlantic Ocean. Better sleep and skin as well as less respiration problems are just a few health benefits of being near the ocean.

Full of negative ions, ocean air helps you sleep more soundly. That’s because negative ions help the body take in oxygen while balancing serotonin levels. This is crucial in allowing seaside sleepers to relax, sleep uninterrupted and wake up refreshed.

If you suffer from dry skin, ocean water is also better than a trip to the dermatologist. Studies show that the salt and potassium in the water can help heal skin and add to its elasticity. Spending time in the waves instead of time lathering skin with expensive lotion could be the key to younger looking healthier skin.

Breathing in ocean air each day can also lead to significant health benefits. For example, if you suffer from a respiratory issue, coastal air could greatly reduce negative symptoms. When the salty air fills your lungs, it thins mucous while improving lung function. You will subsequently experience reduced coughing and less pressure in the sinus cavities.

Living in close proximity to the ocean can also be good for the mind. The sun, sand and water, sounds of waves and smells of the ocean can all be therapeutic and perpetually calming. Less stress is great for a working immune system and a more productive mental state.

Boracay offer more than just a nice view of the water. Health benefits from a more relaxed outlook to better sleeping all the way to resolving outstanding respiratory issues all come with the territory of living in a coastal environment.

PARASAILING

Ever Considered Flying?


Parasailing is an incredibly fun experience that just about anyone can enjoy, even nervous Nellies only comfortable with their feet firmly planted on the ground.

The most important thing to keep in mind that parasailing is a very safe activity. You are secured in a harness, giving you the support and security you need throughout the entire ride. Knowing you have been secured by a professional should give you the peace of mind you need to really experience what parasailing is all about.

Another reason you don’t have to worry if you don’t like the water is that knowing how to swim isn’t required. That’s because you’ll be up in the air, and you should barely touch the water. Of course, you’ll have a life jacket should you need to land, and someone will always be nearby to pick you up.

Many people make the mistake of thinking parasailing is akin to going on some sort of rollercoaster. While it can be very exciting, it can also be an incredibly relaxing and soothing experience. There is nothing quite like gliding over the water, and everyone really needs to try it at least once in their life. Unlike a rollercoaster, there are very few ups and downs– it’s mostly just smooth sailing.
