Fun Watersports for Beginners

There are many fun water sports that are suitable for beginners. Some options to consider include the following:


This popular sport involves riding the waves on a board. Surfing can be a fun and rewarding activity for beginners; we recommend choosing beaches where there are small breaks and slow-moving waves.  

Learning to surf also requires good balance, coordination, and body awareness. These skills can take some time to develop, and it’s normal to feel awkward or uncoordinated at first. With practice and patience, however, you can improve your surfing skills and become more confident in the water. Surfing can be a great way to enjoy the ocean, get exercise, and have fun. But, it’s essential to be cautious and respect the power of the waves, as well as have all of the correct surfing equipment, such as an adult wetsuit and wetsuit boots. 

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP)

This sport involves standing on a large board and using a paddle to navigate through the water. It’s a great way to get some exercise and enjoy the scenery.

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) can be a good activity for beginners, as it is generally easy to learn and can be done in a variety of settings, including calm lakes, rivers, and oceans. One of the benefits of stand-up paddleboarding is that it is low-impact, so it is easy on the joints and can be a good option for people who are looking for a less strenuous way to enjoy the water.


This sport involves sitting in a small boat and using a paddle to move through the water. It’s a great way to explore rivers, lakes, and coastal areas.

Kayaking can be a good activity for beginners as it is a low-impact activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels.

When you are first learning to kayak, it is important to choose a flat, calm body of water to practice on. You can start by sitting in the kayak and using the paddle to move forward and steer. As you become more comfortable, you can try different strokes and techniques to control the kayak.


This sport involves swimming through the water while wearing a mask and fins, allowing you to explore the underwater world. It’s a great way to see marine life up close and is suitable for beginners. It is recommended that you start in a shallow, sheltered area: Look for a flat, calm body of water with good visibility and a sandy or rocky bottom, and avoid areas with strong currents or waves. It can also be beneficial to practice using your equipment before you get in the water to allow yourself to get comfortable with your mask, snorkel and fins.
