Posted by Vertical Drop on

Extreme sports are some of the most addicting pastimes to have, but they something about them that keeps people coming back. Whether you’ve spent your life chasing thrill or you’re just getting started seeing what other types of activities you can get into, kayaking is one of the activities that the team at Vertical Drop are wild about. Now that temperatures are starting to rise it’s definitely the time to consider investing in a kayak and heading out to the water a few times. Here are just a couple of the reasons that we suggest trying it out.

Directly in Nature

One of the reasons that so many people love snowboarding and skiing is because you are right in the middle of all that nature has to offer. From the fresh powder on the ground to the pine trees surrounding you, it’s easy to get a glimpse of nature when you’re on the mountain. You’ll feel one with the nature when you’re kayaking too. The flowing water running past you and the variety of animals that you see, it’s incredible and thrilling all at the same time!

Relieve Stress

Did we mention that one of the best parts about kayaking is that you are completely surrounded by nature? This is one of the most stress relieving experiences that you will have, but it takes experiencing it to really know it. If the serenity of snowboarding and skiing is what you liked, then you’ll enjoy the serenity that comes with sitting in your kayak and hearing the flow of the water move with you. It’s just as relaxing.

The Thrill

If you’re checking out Vertical Drop at all, there’s something about the thrill that has intrigued you. While this hobby does leave you right in the middle of nature, and does provide a serene place to spend some time, it isn’t any less thrilling than the other hobbies that you likely have. The rapids definitely offer the speed that you love, and also makes for a different adventure each time that you get out on the water.

Entirely Adaptable

Being able to jump into something like kayaking can seem overwhelming, but it’s extremely easily to adapt to different levels of experience and willingness to get out there and try something new. This is a pretty fantastic way to get started with adventurous activities too. Think of the way that you start with the pizza and french fry mentality as you teach starters how to ski; you have a very similar opportunity to ease into the crazy rapids and all in insanity that this sport also offers.
