There are some sports you should definitely try doing in winter and some in summer. Few of them maybe dangerous and others require hard work and a lot of training but after all why not using the life to have some fun while doing sports. Here are our recommendations.
Hang gliding is an air sport. It is both recreational and competitive. The sport is closely related to paragliding and gliding (flying sailplanes) but using a much simpler and less expensive craft consisting of an aluminum – or composite-framed fabric wing, with the pilot mounted on a harness hanging from the wing frame and exercising control by shifting body weight.
Water skiing is a surface water sport and recreational activity is often said to have been invented in Lake City, Minnesota in 1922 by Ralph Samuelson. Rivers, lakes, and sheltered bays are all popular for water skiing. Standard water skis are of similar length to downhill snow skis but are somewhat wider. Skiers are pulled along by a rope with a handle fitted at one end and attached to a powerboat at the other. Recreational skiers usually learn to ski with a ski on each foot, but as they improve usually progress to using a single ski, placing the other foot into another binding behind the main one. Beginners on two skis are usually pulled along at around 25–35 kilometers per hour, whereas more advanced social skiers travel at between 40 and 55 kilometers per hour – once confidence is gained it is actually easier to travel faster than at slower speeds because of the greater lift and stability.
Sailing is the skillful art of controlling the motion of a sailing ship or sailboat, across a body of water. Sailing vessels are propelled by the force of the wind on sails. Today, for most people, sailing is recreation, an activity pursued for the joy of being on the water and pursuing the mastery of the skills needed to maneuver a sailboat in varying sea and wind conditions. Recreational sailing can be further divided into Racing, Cruising and “Daysailing.”
Windsurfing is a surface water sport using a windsurf board, also commonly called a sailboard, usually two to five meters long and powered by a single sail. A windsurfer is steered by the tilting and rotating of the mast and sail as well as tilting and carving the board. The sport combines aspects of both sailing and surfing, along with certain athletic aspects shared with other board sports like skateboarding, snowboarding, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. Windsurfers were the first to ride the world’s largest waves, such as Jaws on the island of Maui, and, with very few exceptions, it was not until the advent of tow-in surfing that waves of that size became accessible to surfers.
Ice hockey is played on ice with a three inch (76.2 mm) diameter rubber disc called a puck between two teams of skaters consisting of a goaltender, two defence players and three forwards. The game is played all over North America, Europe and in many other countries around the world to a greater or lesser extent. It is played with two teams, while 5 skaters and 1 goalie are allowed on the ice at a time. In NHL rules, the periods are 20 minutes long.There are three periods. Ice hockey has been played at the Winter Olympics since 1924, and was in the 1920 Summer Olympics.
Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, mixed couples, or groups perform spins, jumps, and other moves on ice, often to music. Figure skaters compete in multiple levels, from novice to elite, and at national and international competitions.The sport is also associated with show business. Major competitions generally include exhibitions at the end in which the top-placing skaters perform for the crowd. Many skaters, both during and after their competitive careers, also skate in ice skating exhibitions or shows which run during the competitive season and the off-season.
Skiing (technically snow skiing) is the activity of gliding over snow using skis (originally wooden planks, now usually made from fiberglass or related composites), with metal edges, strapped to the feet with ski bindings. Originally used primarily for transportation, snow skiing evolved into a popular recreational and competitive activity during the 20th century. The sport consists of many variations, each of which fits into one of the major categories of alpine skiing, nordic skiing, or telemark skiing.
is a boardsport that involves descending a snow-covered slope on a snowboard that is attached to one’s feet. It is similar to skiing, but inspired by surfing and skateboarding. The sport was developed in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s and became a Winter Olympic Sport in 1998. During the early years of the sport, snowboards and snowboarders were not widely respected by the ski industry and culture. Snowboarding was seen as a fad.
