This summer is currently one of the warmest on record. It’s been that way for many of the recent years, but this year seems to be something special. Heatwaves predicted almost globally have people in colder climates reaching for their fans, not to mention those already living in an area with liberal sunlight. This is shaping up to be the best summer to tan, but also the worst summer to overheat.


In these circumstances, it’s important to make sure that you stay safe. This can be achieved by using the correct factor of sun cream, getting shade where necessary and staying hydrated. It also means you should have fun while the weather is there to promote it. This can be achieved by wearing special swimwear you’ve purchased, relaxing on the beach and exploring a beautiful new culture. But how can you combine both of these? After all, usually we’re only afforded two or three weeks out of the working year to enjoy a summer holiday.


How can you have both fun in the heat, while staying safe and cool in the heat?


The answer? Aquatic activities.


Heading to a beach or waterpark will afford you the opportunity to make some hilarious and memorable times with your friends or family. But what summer aquatic activities can be experienced out of the standard ocean-swimming or water slide fun? Well, provided there is space and sometimes the facilities to help you achieve it, you might consider:


Jet Skiing


Jet skiing is an amazingly fun activity, but it does take some instruction. Ask your resort facilities to point you in the direction of a jet skiing facility in which you can hire a Jet Ski for a reasonable fee and let loose. This might take an hour or two of tuition to get to grips with the machine, and you will have to sign waivers and adhere to a height/age check to use one – but when you board one you’ll understand just why this activity is so popular. Gliding across the water can feel graceful, to the point where you’re likely to forget you’re riding a large machine that is helping you do so. There will likely be cordoned off or at least recommended areas for you to use these jet ski’s, so you can ride in peace.


Water Skiing


Water Skiing is for those athletic and strong enough to handle it, but if you are, you’re in for some boundless fun activity. Water skiing requires you to hire out a full boat and skis for the endeavour, and this can be costly, but riding behind your friends while they film you can make for some great holiday footage.


Paddle Boarding


The previous two suggestions have been quiet intense. They afford you much enjoyment, but if you’re looking for something to enjoy that is much more mellow and can be directed at your own pace, consider enquiring about paddle boarding at a stand up paddle board store. Stand up paddle boarding will allow you to leisurely explore a variety of interesting activities, such as surfing, leisurely paddling across the ocean water when calm, or even provide for your late-night fishing needs. No matter what you enjoy doing, paddle boarding will help you achieve it.


Remember, have fun, and stay safe! Before embarking on any of these activities, or entering deep water at all, ensure your swimming capacity is satisfactory. Enjoy the summer!
