While we have the time on our side, so to speak, we should start to think about what we are going to do when we get out of lockdown. It is the perfect opportunity to think of new things. Furthermore, we can research what we want to do so that we do not feel like a complete newbie when we get to do them. That’s why, in this article, we will look at the top 5 extreme sports to consider when we finally get out of the lockdown.
Top 5 Sports to Consider After Lockdown
In this article, I have tried to pick some of the better things that you can learn about while you are in lockdown. Therefore, they do not all need to have a tremendous amount of training before you start. However, as with all sports, extreme or not, you will need some physical fitness and training in the sport that you pick.
Some will require a lot more planning than others, too. However, all of these sports are available to either start at a center near you or have an instructor with you for your first ventures into the sport.
At least with scuba diving, you should still be able to maintain a little bit of social distancing! On a serious note, though, if you have a love for the water, animals, and exploring the unknown, you may want to consider scuba diving. You may not think that it is an extreme sport, but it certainly can be. Some of the more extreme variations are cave diving and deep water diving. However, we do not recommend jumping in at the deep end, so to speak.
The best way to start this scuba adventure is to head over to Diving Picks and take a look through the information they have there. That will give you an excellent grounding to start your new sport off.
From one extreme to the other – skydiving. If the water isn’t for you, and you want to gain a higher perspective on life, then you should try skydiving. It is not going to be something that you can thoroughly pick up from home, but none of these things will be. However, what you can do is learn the ropes and even some of the moves that you need to know. That way, when you get to a tandem jump or a wind tunnel, you will have a better grasp of what to do.
If you go to skydiveperris.com, you can see what it is like in a wind tunnel, find out training times and costs before you go. Furthermore, you can go straight into a tandem jump to see if the heights are what you are looking for.
Rock climbing is a little bit like joining one extreme with the other. The difference is that this time you will be walking, well, climbing. Rock climbing is undoubtedly one of the more physically challenging sports on this list. However, that is what makes it fun. Don’t worry, though, even if this is your first time; you do not have to go on a trip to Everest. You can learn on indoor walls, moving your way up to higher heights.
If you want to learn the basics and start getting your kit ready, explore-share has a pretty good starter article, here.
If you are looking for adrenaline without the bitter cold of water or heights, and you prefer something a bit warmer, sink yourself into sandboarding. This sport is not something that you see every day. However, it is undoubtedly a lot of fun. The best part about it is that you may be able to get yourself a tan while you are at it. Imagine snowboarding, but with sand instead of snow. That’s it, sandboarding.
Get your goggles on and take a look at Surfer Today’s article about sandboarding here. It provides you with a list of all the equipment you need, and the best places to go, too.
If you want something more, on the ground than the other items on this list, or if you live close to snowy areas, then snowmobiling may be the best option for you. Snowmobiling is undoubtedly one of the faster sports on this list, with the only exception of possibly skydiving. While you still have to be pretty fit to tame the 180+HP beast, you probably do not need to be as fit as you do to climb a mountain.
To find out more about snowmobiling, and the history of it, take a look at Snoriders history article. You may be amazed at how far snow travel technology as moved.
I have tried to pick five of the most varied extreme sports to consider after a lockdown in this article. Of course, there are excellent other options that I could have chosen, but I thought that this would be a good mix of ideas.
Take a good look at the sites that I have mentioned. Perhaps you will find something that you didn’t think you would like.
