Outdoor Hobbies: 5 Cool Activities To Try

If you are fed up with the daily drab of the 9-5 rat race and are looking to inject some passion into your lifestyle, you might need to take up a new outdoor hobby. If, for example, you commute daily to an office job, it can be easy to slip into a routine of inactivity and with summer already upon us in some parts of the world, here are some great outdoor hobby activities to change your predictable lifestyle.

  1. Drone Flying – Drones have come down in price since they were first revealed to the world and with 4K video, you can capture amazing video footage. Start with a standard all-purpose drone and when you become a competent operator, upgrade to a professional model. There are drone clubs all over and joining a local drone flying group would be the best way to get into the drone community.
  2. Quad Bike Riding – If you were thinking of introducing quad riding to your young son, there are childrens quad bikes for sale online or, you can check out the leading quad dealership near you. If you invest in an adult quad, you can accompany your son to various quad riding venues and together you can build on your skills. There are some great quad trails and parks and if you don’t own your own bike, you may want to ask if they have quad bikes for rental. If you would like to learn more about quad riding, the Internet hosts a wealth of resources, and you can book a test ride on the quad of your choosing.

  1. Karting – Go karts are very popular all over the world and while this is an expensive hobby, there’s a lot of satisfaction in entering and winning a kart race. If you are handy with spanners and engines, why not build your own kart? This is how most of the people get into karting, which can be described as ’addictive’. If you have a love of speed, motor racing seems like an obvious choice and karting is an entry level for more serious motor racing.
  2. Wing Foiling – Imagine a surfboard that lifts out of the water, and you have the concept of wing foiling; you will need a board, a foil, a wing and a bar. The Internet can help you to locate a water venue where wing foiling is taught and after a few lessons, you should be able to wing foil to a basic level.
  3. Sky Diving – There’s nothing to compare with freefalling from 10,000 ft. and for your first jump, you can be strapped to an instructor and experience the adrenaline that comes with sky diving. Of course, you have to start at the beginning with sky diving, with some classroom tuition and landing practice, then you can do a few low-level jumps (2000 ft.) from a static line; once you master that, you can jump from higher altitudes.
