There are countless ways to enjoy the open water all year round. Whether you’re after a relaxing day out in the sun or a thrilling winter adventure, keep your eyes peeled for exciting opportunities.

Here are six adventurous ways to experience the joys of Earth’s waters.

Wakeboarding at Sunrise

1. Wakeboarding in the Med

This extremely trendy sport was only invented around thirty years ago and since then it has become popular all over the world. Riders are typically towed behind a motorboat on a thin board as they try to perform jumps and tricks using the boat’s wake as a ramp. It will take a bit of practice but the Mediterranean sun should keep you happy. {photo credit: Glyn Lowe}
