Have you always wanted to try a watersport but wasn’t sure about it? Well, this is definitely the season to do so! And with so many options available at the beautiful coastlines of Cyprus, there’s definitely something for everyone, whether you are an adrenaline junkie, or a peace-seeker type of person. With this in mind we came up with our top 5 + 1 reasons to give watersports a go this summer.
1. Loads of fun
Most importantly, the number one reason to try a watersport is that it is loads of fun. Whether you opt for a jet ski or want to take your buddies and go on a pedal boat with slides, there’s nothing quite like getting out there and letting off a bit of stream while trying something new.
Who doesn’t like the feeling of trying a new fun activity for the first time and/or learning a new skill? Plus other lovers of watersports are usually great fun and have a huge amount of energy so it is almost guaranteed that you’ll have a lot of laughs too.
2. Great exercise
Why would you spend a lunch break in a hot, sweaty gym, especially during these summer months, while listening to the same club music on repeat every day? Instead, you can get out there and really burn some calories while toning up. Depending on which watersport you choose, you’ll be working your core muscles (abs anyone?) more than any traditional exercise does, and this can have an impressive result on your fitness levels and your physique.
For example, according to Men’s Fitness, stand up paddleboarding is a great full body exercise. Relying on your core muscles for balance, just 30 minutes it gives you an all-over cardio workout and can be equivalent to running ten kilometers. I don’t know about you, but I would trade running for anything!
3. Sound mind, Sound body
It is now common knowledge that stress has a significant effect not only on our minds but our bodies as well. But in this fast paced, and technology-dependent advanced modern world, what can we do about this?
With work related anxiety rising to unprecedented levels, and work induced burnout now being recognized as an official condition, spending time in the sea can be a great way to ease your mind and enjoy an activity far away from the stress of the workplace. Trust me, it works!
4. Many places to choose from in different cities
In Cyprus, we are surrounded by sea. This means regardless of which city you may be living, there’s no doubt that there will be a watersports place nearby. Wait.. Did I say “a” watersports place? Cross that out. Each city offers several spots to choose from. And each place offers a variety of activities as well as a unique view of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. You’ll never get bored, believe me!
5. Sense of freedom
This is something that you have to experience to understand. Watersports can give you a total sense of freedom. Whatever type of activity you choose, you’re in control to have as much fun as you can. Plus the feeling of conquering wave after wave, gives you an amazing feeling of accomplishment. Besides that, you can transfer your new skills to pretty much any other beach in the world. Surfing in Hawaii? Water skiing in Spain? This sounds like a pretty interesting challenge don’t you think?
