Extreme sports for beginners
You do not aspire to become a champion, and sport is not your profession. Nevertheless, a healthy thirst for movement and adrenaline is present in you. Then an active holiday for you!
Unfortunately, the average citizen does not have constant access to the sea and mountains. That is why extreme tourism or its calmer variety of active tourism, namely water and mountain sports, are exotic for him. They can not be tackled after work, but you can completely devote your vacation to them.
True, you must immediately make a reservation that pleasure is not cheap for three reasons. First, you need to get to your destination. Secondly, you need to rent equipment or have your own. Thirdly, practicing exotic sports usually require a paid briefing.The choice
First of all, you have to decide in which particular sport you would like to try yourself. This will directly depend on where you go. Here are the classic combinations (although, of course, far from the only ones): surfing – Bali, kitesurfing – Vietnam, windsurfing – Egypt, diving – Thailand, paragliding – Peru, mountain biking – Scotland, zorbing – New Zealand. Extreme tourism in Russia is only gaining momentum, but if you are puzzled, you can find something interesting in the vastness of our country. For a person who has begun to seriously get involved in any of these sports, in the future the main entertainment will be to conquer those spots where he has not been. To go to the same place, popular among thousands of other tourists, it makes sense only at the training stage and the lack of their own equipment.
The choice of direction is half the battle. Next, you need to predict the right season. Otherwise, you can get into trouble and sit out for a day, waiting for “the sea of weather.” Active rest does not tolerate indecisive.
Getting ready to rest is worth starting at home. A good physical shape will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the speed of training. For example, a person who is familiar with surfing at the video level is unlikely to suggest that a rather strong load falls on the muscles of the hands. At the moment of arrival of the wave, the mass of the body from the board must be quickly transferred to the legs with the help of push-ups, followed by a jump.
The most difficult to master is kitesurfing, which requires simultaneous control of both the kite and the board. However, the emotional return in case of success pays off the efforts and injuries received. Paragliding is another sport that interacts with the elements of the wind. Hovering in the air above the ground implies a complete lack of fear of heights. People who decided to go diving also fall into an unusual environment for themselves. Yes, and just rowing to get to the zone of “catching” waves will take a lot. About the strength of the hands needed by the windsurfer, you can guess without any clues.
Conquering the underwater world requires excellent health, because any ailment under water can affect the most unpleasant way. But extreme does not necessarily imply the absence of solid soil. You do not need to reinvent the wheel if you already have a mountain bike – ideal for outdoor activities.
Perhaps the most “undemanding” in terms of both physical fitness and seasonality is zorbing, and if you are interested in sports for beginners, then zorbing is just for you. This is called riding on an inclined or water surface inside a large transparent ball. Despite the guaranteed thrill, this sport is absolutely safe. Durable zorb material and an air gap reliably protect a person while he flies head over heels from the mountain. However, remember that even zorbing should be done only under the supervision of experienced instructors in specially equipped venues.
