Ever since our college days we have loved extreme sport, and we found the best place to do then was in Thailand! We had spent enough time on the beaches of Thailand and island hopping.
Perhaps you know the feeling of being bored on vacation, sitting around all day and thinking about the freedom your vacation should be offering you. Well stop!
These are mine and Pulley’s favorite extreme sports! Hopefully you’ll find something that interests you!
You can try out different extreme sports when you which have all different degrees of risk. May it be an activity to test your speed, strength, flexibility, courage and other aspects, you are sure in for a treat to test your limits and have fun at the same time.
Here are 3 extreme sports you can give a go.
First on our list of thrilling sports to try is wakeboarding. Wakeboarding is a surface water sport and is now gaining much popularity in coastal regions. This sport involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. The wakeboard is a small, mostly rectangular, thin board with very little displacement and shoe-like bindings mounted to it. It was said to have developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques.
This sport might be fun but you still need to be safe at all times. Listen very carefully to your instructors as all information is important for your safety. Choose your board size accordingly. Learn to ask questions if needed.
Rock climbing is one of the most fun and challenging sports there is. An extreme sport where you need to climb up, down or across natural rock formations or just artificial ones.
Height is one of the biggest factors to consider in this one of a kind climbing activity. Challenge yourself to reach the top and get the flag or step on the top edges/summit of these rock formations without ever falling.
Your endurance also plays a big role in this sport. That is why it is equally important to prepare your body to the extremities of this activity to fully enjoy it. Make sure to wear your harness too just in case you have some slips on the way to the top.
Last but definitely not the least is Go Karting. It is one of my personal favorite types of open-wheel sports.
Speed & accuracy is tested to the extreme here. They are usually raced on scaled-down circuits. Wearing the proper gears and helmets and being aware of your speed will keep you safe while playing this exciting and extreme sport.
What some of your favorite extreme sports? Let us know below.
It’s true (and you can stop judging us) – Pulley and I love playing pong. And we make no apologies. Pulley is a particularly good player. He seems to have a great eye, even at great speeds and in difficult conditions. I suppose that’s why he found me as a friend.
I, however, can confess that I’m not a ping pong player. This is also why I ended up with Pulley as my bestie (joking of course)! This is why when we play ping pong, I need a few accessories to help me play just a bit better – some sunglasses, a pair of gloves and a lot of water.
I always enjoy our ping pong adventures. We had a particularly great time playing ping pong in Rhode Island last summer. They hold a contest every year where members of the public can compete with top ping pong players just for the fun of getting their butts kicked! I was so desperate to finally see Pulley lose, and he was just as eager to show that he could win.
What happened surprised us and and everyone else around us.
Pulley played 3 top players in a row and beat each and every one of them. The players actually started getting angry and became very competitive, whereas before they were hardly even trying and were still winning.
When they actually started trying however they quickly kicked Pulley’s butt. Success! For me anyway.
Everyone congratulated Pulley on his ability and informed him that had he started when he was young he could have been a top player. Unfortunately, his time has passed and it’s no longer on the cards for him, but I do remember him being very good at ping pong in college.
Perhaps you’ll all hear about Pulley the marvellous ping pong player in the future!
