How to plan your next adventure sports holiday

Oct, 30 || No Comments |

You know it and you love it: the thrill of adrenaline from completing a feat that your doctor probably does not recommend you practicing on a regular basis. It could be that your love of outdoors and heights brings you to look for the best places to rock climb without any kind of hardness or support (also known as free climbing). Or, perhaps you get your kicks from being in and near the water, feeling the sun on your back while you kite surf, jet ski, or wakeboard.
No matter what your preferred method of thrill-seeking is, there are a few good things to keep in mind while you plan out your next adventure. So, before you book that ticket and strap on whatever equipment you need to inject some adrenaline into your life, read on for a few things to remember ahead of setting off for your adventure sports holiday.

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst.

Some of the things you will be doing on an adventure sports holiday are definitely going to be a blast, but still might be relatively dangerous. Even if you are an expert at skydiving, there are sometimes things outside of you control, so it is wise to always be prepared. Sometimes, these events can be relatively minor in that they are not life-threatening. Yet, other times, debilitating injuries are unavoidable due to things like negligence or equipment malfunction.
For these kinds of scenarios, it is important to have insurance. Even if there is a high premium associated with risky sports activities, it is not worth going on an adventure holiday on to bankrupt yourself when you get back home because the person who was belaying your climb had a brain fart on the job. The idea is to at least get coverage for emergency situations if something more comprehensive is out of your price range.

Find a Destination that makes Sense

This is really just common sense. If your idea of a good time is getting airlifted to a treacherous mountain in the Alps with nothing but your winter clothes and a snowboard, then heading to the Caribbean is probably not a great choice for an adventure holiday. And while the latter option might be a dream come true for someone who is really into surfing of all varieties, that person is not likely to be pleased freezing their buns off in the climes of a snowy mountain. A destination for the sport of your choice that is off the beaten track will help you save money as well.

Gear Up and Get Down to Business

If you are an avid enthusiast of an adventure sport, chances are you already have gear that you know and love. If not, you are going to probably want to borrow from a friend or rent the necessary goods on site. Whatever the case, do not skimp: if you are in cold waters and you try to surf without a wetsuit, you are going to regret it later and your overall experience will suffer. Know what you need, make sure it fits and works well, and have the adventure of a lifetime.
