5 Extreme Water Sports to Love This Summer

These Must-Try Activities Go Perfect With Your Boat Rental

Are you an adrenaline junkie? Summer is the perfect time to explore new adventures out in the water.

There are so many options available to you. Just take a look at some of the best beaches and locations to get going with friends and family.

If you’re new to the world of extreme water sports, there’s a lot to choose from. Whether you like swimming, diving, boarding, or just trying out new things, you can make the most out of your boat rentals with these incredibly unique adventures.

Jet Skis:

They’ve been described as motorbikes on water – and how can you resist that? Jet skiing is one of the most popular activities out there. It can make for a great outing if you want to take a friend along for the ride, too.

Typically Waverunners are the popular choice for jet ski boat rentals. They allow you to accelerate, reverse, and control your speeds at all times. Of all the water sports, this is probably the best one to start with if you’re new. It’s safe to manage and fun to learn new tricks. Skim over the water and enjoy the beautiful views or hop along the waves and enjoy the ride!


Windsurfing combines elements of sailing and surfing with the power of the wind. If you haven’t done it before with a boat rental, it’s a cool opportunity to perform jumps, spins, inverted loops, and moves that can’t be done anywhere else on the water.

In windsurfing, the sailboard acts like a surfboard and allows you to harness the wind to make movements. Just picture it: the splash of the water, the wind against your skin. Best of all, the gear is pretty easy to transport. You don’t even need a trailer! All you need to get started is a board, sail, mast, mast base, and boom.


You can combine the excitement of surfing, wakeboarding, and paragliding with kiteboarding. Also called “kitesurfing”, this extreme water sport is gaining popularity worldwide! Kiteboarders use high-tech boards to propel themselves through the water with a kite.

All it takes is a bit of wind to sail across your favorite tropical beach. One of the most exciting parts about kiteboarding is that it’s never the same ride twice – there are always new ways to ride your kite and expand your skills! All you need is the water and unforgettable paradise surroundings. Besides your boat rental, the only essential gear includes a kite, board, and harness if you’re up for the ride.


Have you ever explored the open seas free from equipment? Freediving is one of the most natural ways to see the depths of the water and enjoy the oceans and underwater world without help from a breathing apparatus.

Actually, if you’ve ever been underwater for an amount of time while holding your breath, you’ve done freediving! Freedives can be shallow or deep depending on the experience you’re looking for with your boat rental – view reefs, rocks, and sealife in ways you’ve never seen before.

It’s also one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy the water since it doesn’t require heavy SCUBA gear. Many swimmers who practice this hobby in their own time describe the experience as meditative and incredibly enjoyable.


This may be the closest you’ll ever get to wearing a jet pack! Flyboarding is a relatively new sport – created around 2011 – that propels you into the air with the use of a jet ski.

So, here’s how it works: The board is attached with a hose to the motor of a jet ski. As the jet ski moves, the water flows through the hose, which propels you into the air. The hand stabilizers allow you to stay in control as you perform flips and spins out of the water. Imagine a boat rental that allows you to fly through the air while being powered by thousands of gallons of water!

This is superhero-like power with very little effort. It allows you to perform stunts in the water that no other sport can. With the proper boat rental, you can get as high as 30, 40, or 50 feet high. Even beginners get the hang of the movements easily. They can dive head first in the water with little effort. Some of the more seasoned flyboarders can perform somersaults!
