Rope Yoga & Kitesurfing? 6 Thrilling Sports For Adrenaline Junkies

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, chances are you’ve already tried some of the more uh, thrilling sports such as rock climbing and walking across elevated wobbly logs at the Forest Adventure. Compared to the usual void deck soccer and multipurpose hall badminton, rock climbing does sound pretty rad.

However, as true thrill seekers, completing the Forest Adventure alone just doesn’t cut it. What you need are some heart-pounding and soul-stopping activates that will get your adrenaline going. From cable skiing to car racing, we give you six thrilling sports that will do more than satisfy the adrenaline junkie in you.

With Urban Ski, you can now snowboard indoors without having to worry about the blistering cold or lack of snow. An excellent workout and fun experience rolled into one, we’d say to not underestimate the skill needed to balance on the moving treadmill. Worry not if it’s your first time as an instructor will be with you at all times. At $90 a session, we can’t think of a better way to prepare for that upcoming winter trip in December.

Sure, we may not have the luxury of large open waters but that does not stop water sports enthusiasts from trying their hands at cable skiing. Instead of a boat, you’ll be pulled by a machine at speeds from twenty to fifty-eight kilometres per hour. Not exactly a pro? Fret not as the instructors will have you covered. So if you’re looking for a cooling yet thrilling activity, check out Ski360degree for more information!

Though a familiar activity to many water sports enthusiasts, some may be surprised to find this sport in Singapore. Conducted at either East Coast Park or Pasir Ris, spend your day navigating a power kite whilst skimming across blue sparkly waters. For the beginners, do expect to take a couple of hours/days before you’re able to fly.

Not that big a fan of water sports? Land paddling should do the trick. If you’re familiar with Stand Up Paddling (SUP), land paddling is simply the uh, land version. If not, simply imagine yourself riding a skateboard but instead of kicking your legs, you use a long stick to push yourself forward. It may sound simple, but trust us when we say this sport is a great way of getting those chiselled six pecs. If you’re looking for a place to start, Outer Quadrant is a possible start.

Yeap, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s rope plus yoga. Unlike the traditional yoga, rope yoga uses sturdy ropes that provide support to aid your stretchability and yoga poses. Worry not if you’re new to rope yoga or even yoga. The ropes are there to help ease the tightness of your body. So ladies, if you’re looking for something new, feel free to give rope yoga a try at $39 for a session at Samasthah!
