Water Sport in Thailand


If you love the open water and getting wet and wild, inland Bangkok might not seem the obvious choice for taking up this type of activity but this isn’t the case. In Thailand, having fun, or sanuk as the locals call it is a top priority and for this reason there are plenty of ways to blow off steam in the Thai capital with a fair few water based activities amongst them.

 

There are a couple of wakeboarding parks in Thailand. So if you’ve yet to try this fun water sport then this is the opportunity you have been waiting for! If you are unfamiliar with wakeboarding, it is the practice of being pulled long on a rope or cable, while standing on something that resembles a snowboard, while gliding across the water.

 

The cable or rope can either be attached to a boat like water-skiing or, as is the case with the Bangkok wake parks, pulled along by an aerial cable pulley system. Ramps and jumps are added to the course to allow you to grab some air and perform impressive aerial stunts and maneuvers. If you still aren’t clear on exactly what it entails, check out this video: http://player.vimeo.com/video/45345474?portrait=0&autoplay=1
