What is Water Rafting?

For all you adrenaline junkies out there and for people who want to take a leap out of their comfort zones, water rafting is the perfect getaway. Water rafting sounds simple, but it takes a lot of team-work to accomplish it. In short water, rafting is the sport or recreational activity that involves a group of people to manoeuvre a river or water body through the stream to reach a particular destination. Most people refer to water rafting as white water rafting and is said to be among the most high-octane sports on the planet. If you and your group want to feel like you are a part of your very-own action movie that requires you to navigate through treacherous streams and waterfalls, then water rafting is the ideal choice for you.

A lot of organizations these days are looking at water rafting as the ideal activity to promote team building as it requires perfect team synergy and coordination to get from point A to point B. Most people who take up this activity as a part of a corporate getaway say that new leaders emerge as the activity unfolds thus bringing the group together and helping them understand the team better as well. But beyond all this talk about team-work and bonding, there is this big factor that gets people hooked, and that is the sheer power of nature at its finest.

Professor X mixed sugar, spice and everything nice but required chemical X to make the Powerpuff girls. On a similar note, water rafting mixes the thrill, the sheer weight of nature and team synergy to give us the perfect high-octane sport. The sport has actually been around for over two centuries, and this might come as a surprise to many. But the sport has truly stood the test of time, and its popularity only seems to rise with more and more people turning avid enthusiasts. The rise in popularity is down to sheer marketing efforts that has propelled this sport to astronomical levels. Most sports lack the pull due to their over-emphasises on the need for professional training to take part. Not even for a second are we saying that you won’t require proper training but the duration of these training sessions have become compact and concise to help more people to take up this sport.

Obviously, you will require a number of things before you start out. But for the time being, we are going to tell you to sign up for a professional training class to go over the basics to help you start things off.

Kayaking for Beginners: Top 3 Tips

Most kids learn cycling as their first sport because of how easy it is to learn. Essentially all you need to know to pick up cycling is a sense of balance and with training wheels that is a walk in the park or should we say easy as cycling in the park. What cycling is on the land is what kayaking is on water. Kayaking essentially requires a good sense of balance on water, and soon you’ll be like a fish in water, manoeuvring through the streams with ease. Unlike cycling, kayaking does involve a tad bit more intricacy and to help you start out we’ve come up with certain essential tips to help you out.

1. A Tutor

Kayaking isn’t as simple as riding the bike, although we did mention that it is. We did not lie but neither did we go over all the facts. Your dad or mum could essentially teach you how to cycle because they either know how to cycle or at the very least understand the basics of cycling. But kayaking would require a professional to teach or rather someone who has been kayaking for a while. The only reason we recommend a tutor is because most people don’t know how to and unlike cycling, kayaking is not so popular that your mum or dad would know how to, but if they do know how to, then, by all means, learn from them

2. Purpose over Pleasure

Always dress for the occasion and not for the weather. That right there is words of wisdom but let us explain why we believe you shouldn’t wear something appropriate for the weather. Say the weather out there is so pleasant that you choose to wear shorts instead of kayaking gear; unless you’re a pro, there is the likelihood that you might end up getting lopsided and wet. Kayaking gear would be ideal as it is water resistant and would surely protect you from getting wet.

3. Choices

The minute you walk into a kayak showroom, you will be flooded with choices. And believe us when we say this, you’re choices define everything. If you walk into a reputed water-sports showroom, you’d be guided with the utmost care. And we can’t stress enough about how important this is. When you’re starting out, you need to get a boat that checks all the right boxes. A good showroom will also throw in buoyancy aids, which at the end of the day will make all the difference.
