Plenty of risk and skill is needed if you want to take up snowboarding. Challenging climates and testing terrain make this a particularly exhilarating sport. There are a few different styles of snowboarding, but freestyle is best for those who seek an adrenaline rush. Freestyle snowboarding is all about executing tricks by using your surrounding, man-made or natural. You’ll see freestylers utilizing whatever they can to come up with creative moves.
If you’re a pro, and even freestyling sounds tame, how about snowboarding down a volcano? Not for the faint hearted, snowboarding is at its most extreme in Nicaragua. Cerro Negro is the site of a live volcano, which last erupted in 1999, it’s become the go-to spot for thrill seekers and extreme borders. Sliding down the slope of the mountain you could reach speeds of 80 kilometers per hour.
Few activities offer the same sense of escape and adventure as those which take place in the open water. Away from the safety and comfort of the shore, thrillseekers get the chance to experience tranquility along with a serious rush. Paddleboarding combines the best of both worlds, relaxation with a rigorous workout.
Paddleboarders set off by moving themselves forward in a swimming motion whilst lying on their board. You can then lie down, kneel, or even stand, to get the kick you want out of this activity. Stand up paddleboarding is similar but a broader uses a paddle to propel them forward. If you’re looking to get into stand up paddle boarding inflatables are a good option. Choose the best inflatable stand up paddle board for you based on your weight, height, and what you’ll be using it for. Paddleboarding is also considered a seriously good workout and improves your core strength.
Jet skis, catamarans, and speedboats are all an adrenaline junkie’s dream. The main appeal is the speed aspect. Choppy waves and fast boats make for an interesting ride! Inflatable catamarans are becoming increasingly popular. Hulls are kitted out with hugely powerful engines which propel the boat through the water at top speeds. This can make for a very rough but exhilarating ride. Hang on tight, because it’s definitely going to be a bumpy ride!
