Awesome Water Sports You Have To Try
Out Yourself
Water sports are some of the most fun and thrilling activities you can do. Here are some
of the coolest ones we’ve found that we think you should try.

When people think of water sports, they tend to only think about the basics like water skiing and surfing. However, there are so many more that you probably haven’t tried or even heard of before. In this article, we’ll cover some water sports that you’ll have to try yourself in order to truly understand how awesome they are.
Barefoot Skiing
If you’re reading this list, there’s a good chance you’ve gone water skiing before. What if we told you that you could do that without those pesky skis? Well, as long as the boat pulling you goes fast enough, barefoot skiing is very possible. Moving that fast with nothing but you and the water below you is such a thrilling experience.
Skimboarding
We also mentioned surfing earlier, which is pretty fun in its own right, but there’s a lot of downtime in that water sport. If you love surfing but hate swimming out to where the waves get big enough, you should try skimboarding. All you have to do is run off the beach into the water, hop on your board, and ride the shallow waves coming in. It’s not nearly as technical as real surfing, but it can be just as fun.
goes into understanding what kitesurfing is and how to do it, the basics are simple: you
let the wind pull your giant kite through the sky and do your best to stay on the board.
Underwater Scootering
Here’s a pretty cool water activity you might not have heard of before, and no, it doesn’t
have anything to do with the scooters you’re used to. Underwater scooters are handheld
devices that propel you through the water. You can use these while either snorkeling or
scuba diving. Regardless of your chosen method, these devices are perfect for
exploring as much of the undersea world as possible without getting tired.
Canyoning
Here’s another one that has a weird name. Canyoning is when you explore mother
nature in every way possible. Swimming through rivers, climbing up cliffsides, and
jumping into large bodies of water are just a few things you’ll be doing during this
activity. Even though not every aspect of it takes place in the water, it’s the perfect
choice for those looking for something that perfectly combines exploration with thrill-
seeking.
Flyboarding
Finally, the last water sport we think you need to try for yourself is flyboarding.
You’ve likely seen videos on the internet of people either failing epically with these or
doing incredible stunts. Your first few times might be closer to the failure videos, but in
no time, you’ll feel like a pro with a flyboard.
