Highlights

For those who love to feel the ocean waves splashing across their face while rushing through water, the water skiing sport is just the right option for you. In Goa, you can experience a sense of adventure and thrill by trying out the water skiing sport. With plenty of beaches and more or less calm seas, there shouldn't be a reason as to why you should not try water skiing here. Though beginners must be a bit careful, if you have a good sense of balance and know how to swim, water skiing should not be a problem.

There is a difference between water skiing and surfing on the waves. While the latter requires only a surfboard and the hands are free, the former requires a speed boat and the skier must firmly grip the towrope. In water skiing, a strong rope is tied to the boat and the skier is asked to have grip on the other end while balancing on the ski. As the boat gains speed, you must tightly hold the rope and balance on the skies while slightly moving your body left and right according to the waves. Having strong legs is a bonus.

One can try out water skiing in places like Cidade de Goa, Bogmalo Beach Resort, and Taj Hotels in Goa. These beach resorts and hotels have good facilities of water skiing and high class speed boats. The best months to try out water skiing are October to April. In case you are not able to hold on while the boat gains speed, you can always signal them to slow down and just let go of the rope. Beginners may tire soon due to high speeds but you can always tell them not to speed up much. Wish you Happy Skiing.
