10 Reasons to Try Water Sports Activities!

  2. There is low impact resistance in watersports.
  3. Watersports take place in beautiful surroundings, which helps to calm the mind and body

  9. Watersports can be social and encourage teamwork – often a brilliant way of meeting new people, through group activities and helping each other out in some aspect or another. Enjoying a well-deserved breakfast, coffee or cake after a dip in a lake or paddle to a pub is a great way to bond and share an adventure together.
  10. Swimming in cold water is highly beneficial for the body as it can build self-esteem, reduce stress and help your skin. (However, once you are out of the water and are no longer active, it is essential to recover and bring your temperature back up – we find hot chocolate and a bacon bap, wrapped in a nice warm towel is the best way to do this!)
