Water sports are, as the name suggests, sports that take place on the water. This includes such things as waterskiing, barefoot waterskiing, jetskiing, surfing, windsurfing and more. Of course each water sport varies greatly in how you do it and each has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. However they do all share some common links and there are some universal points that make water sports in general great activities for so many people.
The first great thing about water sports is that they are outdoors, and not just outdoors but on the sea. What this means is that you’ll be in the sun and the wind with great fresh sea air lapping on your face and paddling about in the fresh sea water. This has countless health benefits: being fresh air it will help you to get a good night’s sleep, being salty it will act as a disinfectant and kill off any germs or bacteria (it’s great for if you have an open wound), it means you’ll be in the sun getting a tan and it means you’ll have a soft landing if you should fall off.
