Wet & Wild Water Sports in Dubai – Of Thrills and Splashes

Dubai is probably the most popular tourist destination in the Middle East. Even though much of Dubai was built on desert land yet it is known for offering numerous wet and wild water sports!

1

Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing

This adrenaline pumping water sport is one that Dubai is well known for. Using kites and the wind to surf through the waters at great speeds, this sport truly offers a whole load of thrills. You can get lessons from reputed schools such as the Mark Andrew Kite School, and once you are ready, just head over to kitesurfing spots such as Kite Beach or Nessnass and show off your skills!

Wipeout Flowrider

Wipeout Flowrider

The Wipeout Flowrider at the Wild Wadi Park is one of the most challenging and fun water sports you can try out in Dubai. The challenge is to see just how long you can last on a board while 7 tonnes of water come at you per second, creating a torrent that you surf on! The torrent will try its best to make you wipeout, so hold on with everything you've got!

Flyboarding

Flyboarding

Flyboarding is one of the newest sports to take the water sporting world by storm. Strap yourself on to the board that will fire out high pressure columns of water with such force that you will be lifted off the surface of the water, letting you hover about in mid-air! A hit with thrill-seekers, flyboarding is a water sport that everyone simply must try out! A great hotel to stay in while trying all these water sports in Dubai is the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.

Jet Skiing

Jet Skiing

Everyone who has ever gone on a jet ski knows just how exhilarating of an experience it is. And that same experience can be had in Dubai as well. Just head over to Ghantoot, home to the famous Blue Marlin Ibiza Brunch, where you will find a 7km stretch that is designated just for water sports. Jet skiing here truly is an amazing experience, especially during the party atmosphere on the area during the Saturday Brunch!

Kayaking

Kayaking

Kayaking is a sport that everyone can enjoy. Be in single kayaking or tandem kayaking the sport truly is an exciting and fun activity. The waters around the Palm Jumeriah are ideal for kayaking as the scenery and the conditions make it quite the experience. Kayaking in the afternoon is not advisable owing to the heat, but the kayaking in the mornings and late evenings is sure to be a treat.

Aqua Bikes

Aqua Bikes

Probably one of the craziest water sports around Dubai is aqua biking. Hop on a huge tricycle like contraption and cycle along the waters; it's an experience you are not likely to have anywhere else! For your information, there is also a special area cordoned off where you can aqua bike in Palm Jumeriah!

Wakeboarding

Wakeboarding

This one is for those of you with quite a bit of physical strength and want to take up a challenge. Wakeboarding involves strapping your feet on to a single narrow board while being towed along the water at adrenaline-pumping speeds! Hold on tight and enjoy the speed, because wiping out at that speed can create quite a splash!
