Winter is coming. But that doesn’t mean you have to stay on dry land and postpone your favorite water sport activities for another six months. Modern wetsuits ensure that you are kept warm and tight, so when you’re wearing one, you hardly even notice the cold. So, whether it’s summer or winter, you can enjoy the beauty of the ocean with the correct gear.
Winter surfing provides the large, clear waves that every surfer dreams of. The nicest thing about winter surfing is that there are fewer people there, allowing you to go to the busiest surf spots and catch the best waves without competing surfers grabbing them first.
The weather is another benefit of surfing in the winter. The greatest swells occur in the winter, providing you the opportunity to brag to your buddies about surfing some of the best breaks of your life.
Open Water Swimming
Swimming in open water has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and for excellent reasons. The activity has been scientifically shown to enhance both physical and mental health, with the colder weather facilitating weight loss and increasing metabolic rate. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that swimming in cool temperature (but safe) water causes dopamine levels to soar more than twice the amount.
In addition to the many health advantages, open water swimming is a terrific opportunity to meet new people. Additionally, you’re not constrained to a little area like a pool, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to unwind and take in the beauty of nature.
Paddleboarding has become quite popular in the summer and may be one of the largest watersports fads in recent years, but that doesn’t mean you have to put your board away and paddle in the winter.
The ability to paddleboard almost anywhere in the world is one of its biggest benefits. Inland waterways are ideal for paddleboarding in the winter since the quiet seas keep you dry. Wetsuits, drysuits, hats, and gloves can all be worn if you’re an adrenaline junkie and want to paddleboard in the sea so that you’re warm enough to enjoy your favorite water sport.
High-speed water sports like jet skiing have a reputation for improving your coordination and balance. It also aids in developing your leg muscles. Additionally, it’s one of the most popular water sports worldwide. What could be better than sailing the seas while admiring breathtaking vistas of your favorite Dubai sights? There is no better way to do this if you like an adrenaline rush than to indulge in a jet skiing excursion along the city’s beaches.
Flyboarding first appeared on the adventure sports scene in Dubai a few years ago. It has since gained popularity among the city’s thrill-seeking water sports enthusiasts and is ideal for the winter. The rider of a flyboard harnesses the pressure of the water to ‘fly’ into the air. The throttle regulates the force of the water jet that shoots out of the flyboard. Holding down the throttle causes the energy to be diverted to the connecting tube, increasing propulsion. It is enjoyable and surprisingly easy to do. The rider is secured to the flyboard and outfitted with a life jacket and helmet for protection.
