There are so many different kinds of sports within the world and many of them take place in, on or under the water surface. There are various popular water sports which people are interested in and take up as hobbies, and other people like to try out different ones when on holiday or as something to do.

A popular water sport that takes place on top of the water is white water rafting, in which a group of people will sit in a raft, which is an inflatable boat made from rubberized or vinyl fabrics so it is strong and waterproof. People in the boat have to navigate their way through either a course at a designated centre, or down rapids in a river. The sport gives those who take part a great adrenaline rush as they have to manoeuvre their way through waves, rocks and drops. There are 6 different grades for people to base their skill level upon, 1 being the simplest and perfect for beginners and 6 being highly dangerous and are rarely ever attempted due to the high risk of injury and death.

A popular sport beneath the water is diving. Just like the above sport you can be a complete novice and never tried it before to someone who is skilled at diving to give it a go. It is a popular choice when venturing abroad where there are various different fish and coral that cannot be seen in waters around the UK. Being able to swim amongst the tropical marine life is highly enjoyable and you are able to see a lot more and get a better experience than snorkelling.

A popular sport that takes place in the water is swimming. People usually learn at an early age in school how to swim. It is a simple sport that does not require special equipment and you can carry it out in various places from hotel swimming pools, to the ocean, to the local swimming baths. Being able to swim long distances and at a high speed is a skill and many take part in the sport competitively. Swimming dates back to the Stone Age and is still one of the most popular water sports today. These are just a few of the types of water sports out there for people to try out. There are a number of others which provide great fun, adrenaline rushes and a great form of exercise to try out.
