Summer is one of my favorite times of the year because, hot as it is, I love being in the water. I've been a little tadpole ever since I was practically a baby. Family legend has it that I could swim before I could walk! So needless to say, I'm very excited about the fact that it will soon be warm enough to engage in all kinds of water-based fun. Just to start out with, here are some great water sports you should try this summer!
Sailing is one water sport you should try, it part because it almost feels like flying. I love being on the ocean in a boat; it's one of the things I love best about living in New England. Being on a sailboat is a feeling like no other in the world. I don't yet know how to sail – so far I've just been a passenger – but I'd really love to learn.
Swimming is my favorite sport ever, period. If we'd had swimming in gym class when I was in high school, I wouldn't have pretended to have cramps all the time. When you swim, you have this freedom of movement; being underwater is like being in your very own world. Whether it's in a pool, the ocean, a lake, a river, or a pond, you can swim away the entire summer.
Not only is windsurfing a water sport you should try, it's one I should try as well! I've always wanted to, but I can't seem to get up the nerve. Still, if sailing is like flying, I can only imagine that windsurfing is as well – even more so, even. I'd love to slice through the water like that!
