…seriously though, swimming is great. if you're new to it your technique WILL be awfull, consequently you'll spend all your energy just going very slowly, so it's a good workout. but you'll see quick improvements as your technique/fitness improve.
i find it as good as yoga for mentally relaxing – 30mins thinking of very little else other than co-ordinating your movement and breathing.
and then you could enter a triathlon, but only if you promise not to take it too seriously.Posted 10 years agopacemakerMember
Kite buggying is quite cheap to get into (under £800) but if you end up getting into racing it is very expensive.
large kites can cost in the region £1000 and you need various sizes from small for strong winds to very large for light breezes.
Then a race buggy can be another £1000 and then drysuit for endurance races on wet beaches, Helmets, Harnesses and PKA and club memberships.
But the feeling of steering with your feet at 60mph with no brakes a couple of inches off the sand really does take some beating!Posted 10 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Open water swimming aka "Wild" swimming seems to be all the rage ATM. I'm not keen on immersion personally but I can see the appeal of jumping into mountain tarns.
Boxing – yeah.
street luge – there's a cheapo version where you use a long board. Need appropriate roads. linky. Fancy a go myself.Posted 10 years ago
