Operation Surf supports war veterans by discovering new solace in water board sports. The positive effect is captured in the award-winning Netflix film Resurface. The veterans meet the blue water under the Pacific Ocean and interact with it successfully washing away their long-winded history. Water board sports also have an added psychological component from the positive ions released from the waves. This provides the opportunity to break away from one’s worries and enjoy the moment.

Surfing is a good example of water board sports that improves lymphatic drainage. It reduces stress by stretching and massaging the large muscle groups of the body. Those who participate in the sport can breathe easier with fewer asthma inhalations. Other activities that improve lymphatic drainage include mountain climbing, kayaking, rock climbing and swimming.

Freestyle Surfing

Freestyle surfing is the most recognized and popular water board sport. The exhilarating rush as a surfer crashes into the water is something to behold. This is also an activity not everybody can perform because it requires strength and balance to be both efficient and accurate. The skill level is similar to other surfing, but when the water hits the face of a surfer, it causes a tremendous jolt. Surfing is a difficult sport for many people to master, but with practice, it can become a wonderful pastime.

Windsurfing and kayaking are also popular water board sports. These activities require the use of both the windsurfing board and the paddleboard. While windsurfing looks very easy, it is not always easy and requires skills to get up in the air and out of the water. Kayaking has the advantage of allowing participants to go on a very long paddleboard race, but windsurfing gives participants the opportunity to paddle in choppy water.

Wakeboarding And Banana Boat

For more advanced or professional surfers, there are all kinds of other water board sports available including surfing, wakeboarding, and banana boating. Some of these require advanced equipment. Wakeboarding and banana boats, for example, require advanced skills that most surfers have not mastered. These sports are designed for people who have mastered basic surfing skills.

One of the benefits of participating in these sports is that they do not require too much equipment. It is possible to rent boards and other gear for these activities. Renting equipment can provide participants with everything they need to participate in the sports. For instance, it is common to find a surfboard attached to a surfboard leash on most surf vacation rentals. With rental equipment, there is no need to buy a board, so the participant does not have to spend money on materials that will only get wasted.

Advantages To Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Other water board sports include stand-up paddle boarding and wakeboarding. Stand-up paddleboarding involves a person paddling in a small circle. There are many advantages to stand-up paddleboarding. One of these advantages is that it can be a very exciting activity for people of all ages. There is nothing quite like seeing others come crashing into the water from a great distance, and many stand-up paddleboarders enjoy this activity as much as other surfers.

Wakeboarding is a popular water sport that requires a good deal of physical strength. The individual must learn how to “wake” in order to paddle in and out of the water without flapping their arms.

Final Words

Wakeboarding is the sport of surfing rolled into one. Many individuals may not immediately connect surfing with stand up paddleboarding, but the two sports share many elements. Before you decide if the two activities are right for you, take the time to learn more about each water sport so that you can make the best choice possible.
