The dog days of summer are here, and what better way to enjoy them than on the lake? Whether you're a beginner or an experienced water sports enthusiast, there's something for everyone to enjoy on the lake. In this blog post, we will outline 9 fun activities that you can try this summer. From tubing to paddle boarding, from kayaking to water skiing, we have got you covered! So get your swimsuit ready and pack your sunscreen – it's time to have some fun on the lake!
Rowing or riding a tube on the lake is lots of fun. A tube ride is an active lake pastime that doesn't need any particular talents. You can still have a good time floating around the lake in a tube if you don't own a boat.
If you've never paddled a paddleboard before, you can start on your knees. After some practice, you'll be ready to try stand-up paddle boarding. Stand Up Paddle Boarding engages your core muscles and builds abdominal strength and lean muscle tone while also strengthening your arms, legs, back, and shoulders. It's such a relaxing way to enjoy the water - especially since it doesn't require any transportation or an expensive boat!
Canoeing is a wonderful way for families to spend quality time together outdoors. If you don't have access to a canoe, renting one for the day is very easy. Canoeing is an excellent method to explore our waterways while getting some exercise.
Kayaking is a great way to stay active while you’re out on the lake. Kayaking is easy to learn on a lake and great fun for kids and adults. Long kayaking excursions allow you to get up and personal with nature. You may go on trips to remote islands, where you'll see curious creatures living in solitude. Watching the sunset over the lake from your tiny boat provide a sense of peace and tranquility.
Water skiing is a popular surface water sport practiced by thousands of people each year in the United States. There's something enjoyable and exciting about gliding over water on nothing more than a pair of skis.
Wakeboarding is a great way to get some exercise, have fun, and enjoy yourself. At breakneck speeds, soar across the lake. In the summer, snowboards are to winter as wakeboards are to summer: a wet and wild adventure for beginners and experts alike.
The appeal of it is that it's more independent and has a lot more power than sailing. The best way to describe it is as having superpowers. Some people liken it to wakeboarding behind a helicopter.
Jet skiing around the lake is a fantastic adventure. Whatever speed you're going, Jet Skiing works your cardiovascular system to the max. All that activity gets your heart racing and increases blood flow, bringing more nutrients and oxygen to your cells. Just 30 minutes of Jet Skiing a day can greatly enhance your endurance.
Electric Surfboarding - eFoiling
An electric foil board is an electric hydrofoil board that lets you "fly" above water. A hydrofoil is included below the board into the water in this design. As a result, the board is lifted off the water surface, giving you the sensation and illusion of "flight."
So there you have it, nine active ways to have fun on the lake this August. Get out there and enjoy the summer while it lasts! And don't forget, safety first - always wear a life jacket when participating in any water activities. Happy swimming!
