Parasailing – also called water parachute when done by a speedboat above water – is a favourite with beach-goers. It involves a canopy attached to the parasailer which is fitted to a boat. Done by professionals, it is a very safe sport at the beach and also one of the simplest to be tried.
A very popular water sport and famous among tourists and the young generation is jet skiing. A small vehicle skims across the water on a flat keel and you control it by handles. The only thing you must know to safely maneuver a jet ski is how to drive a motorcycle. Just being out on the water and enjoying the view is as thrilling as racing across the waves.
The most known beach sport is volleyball. It is a great way to enjoy the beach with your family, friends or people you just met. All you need is a net, a ball and a bunch of people to get started and have some fun. Volleyball might be the oldest and simplest sport to do a beach and remains a great activity. Even though it is hard not to get lost in the competitive rush of making a winner, stay calm and don’t lose your spirit!
Riding waves is just a cool thing to do and a sport at the beach everyone should try at least once. This surface water sport is the best way to have a breathless experience. While waiting for a wave you can think of a thousand different things and then you catch a wave and stay focused on only this one thing. Some people say it is not only about to be a part of the ocean, but to ride on top of the world.
You cannot imagine a beach without a Frisbee – those to go together. It is a lot of fun to throw the disc into the air until your friend catches it or maybe not. A great variation is the sport Frisbee Golf. Therefore, you need to create some golf goals along the beach and mark them somehow. The players take turns throwing the Frisbees at each goal and they must keep track of how many tosses it took to reach each goal. The player with the least amount of tosses wins.
It is like ping pong, but without a table. Equipped with wooden paddles and a ball the size as a ping pong ball, players bash the ball back and forth. The difficult thing is to keep the ball in the air. It might sound boring; however, this is not the case. The beach gives you freedom to play in the sand or in the water. All you need is a little creativity and the willingness to hit the ball.
This is only a short list of sports at the beach, but great ones. Beach sport offers a lot of different things and due to that fact, everybody should find his or her ideal sport at the beach. Afterwards there is still plenty time for sunbathing and swimming!
