Different Types of Water Sports Part 1

Whatever water sport you take part in, you can be sure that you will enjoy the adventurous adrenaline filled fun. There are also plenty of water sport competitions to watch, or even have a go at yourself; and these days, a number of water sports can even gain Olympic entry.

Water is one of the earth’s main elements, and everyone loves it whether it is looking out on a wild turbulent sea, taking a ship or boat ride, fishing off a pier, or lying on a sun kissed beach next to a turquoise tranquil sea. At the present time, there are numerous different action packed water sports to choose from. These include playing under, on, or in the water.


Windsurfing is a hugely popular surface water sport which encompasses a know-how about sailing, and the extremist technique of surfing. The necessary equipment involves a surfboard that has a sail attached to a mast that moves. In order to maneuver the surf board, the participant must work the sails in accordance with the wind, and move in a direction with the waves’ forward face. There are various forms of surfing, and these depend on: the surf riding style, the type of wave the surfer moves on, the design of the surfboard, and how long the surf board is.

Naturally, you cannot surf without good balance, and the latter plays a vital function in keeping the surfer’s posture on the different types of surfing equipment. These pieces of kit include: skim boards, knee boards, paddle or stand up boards, surf mats, and long boards.

Jet Skiing

Jet skiing is like something out of a James Bond film, but you do not have to be 007 to give it a go! It involves sitting on a comfortable one person watercraft, and speeding over the sea. In fact, when freestyle jet skiers take to the water, you can expect to see jumping and flipping over ramps, along with other awesome tricks and stunts.
