How Fast Can A Wake Boat Go: Ideal Speed For Wakeboarding

When determining the speed of the wake boat for wakeboarding, most people think that the bigger the wake, and the faster the boat the better, but there’s much more. Finding the “sweet spot” for your wake boat’s speed isn’t only to ensure the satisfaction of the wakeboarder, but it’s also about the safety.

Even though you’re surrounded by water, accidents are ineradicable. Especially when you’re new and try to eyeball the speed, things could get ugly fast. It’s because falling on the water while you’re wakeboarding isn’t the same as falling into still water.

When you are wakeboarding, the wave created by your boat is called a “wake,” which has a density of over 800 times more than still water. Hence, crashing onto a wake will definitely hurt a lot more than just falling into the water. That’s why knowing the ideal speed for your wakeboarding is essential.

8 Tips That Will Improve Your Camping Experience

Getting out in nature is something everyone can enjoy in the right conditions, but not all camping trips are going to provide a satisfying experience. Unless you’ve prepared for a trip that’s suited for you, you’re not going to get a whole lot of enjoyment out of it. You need to make sure that when you’re camping, all of your needs are being taken care of.

Sure, some might argue that camping is all about roughing it – but it doesn’t have to be. You can spend your time in the woods living in luxury if you want to, so long as you can pack it and bring it with you. Ultimately, the experience you have comes down to how you prepare for it.

Should You Wear Activewear Traveling? (Hell Yes!)

Should You Wear Activewear Traveling? (Hell Yes!)

It’s something people have strong opinions on – should you wear activewear casually, in public. Should you wear lycra onto a plane? Personally, I’m a fan.

Activewear is the best travel wardrobe ever created, and I’m not ashamed to say it; leggings and a sports bra are the perfect clothes to travel in. It’s called athleisure, and while Paris your gym clothes might spark reactions from certain cliques, I probably think the same of women wearing stilettos to explore as they do of me (though kudos to their pain threshold – seriously!!).

Active wear is built to be comfy, easy to wash, odor resistant, and means you can pack less. Fabrics can take a beating while still looking fresh, and wearing it is practical, versatile and effortless. So when I’m asked ‘should you wear active wear while traveling?’ my response is a resouding ‘Hell Yes!’.

The Benefits of RV Camping on the Beach

Since the pandemic, the way people vacation has changed. While humans have always gravitated towards outdoor spaces, physical distancing and lockdowns have made us appreciate our natural surroundings more than ever before.

And beaches specifically can be a great place to park, offering a free ocean view, falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing ashore, and underneath a million stars. Below are some of the benefits of RV camping on the beach.

This is the World’s First Waterproof Outdoor Power Station

A team of outdoor lovers have invented an incredible power station which can work in minus 40 degree weather, and is completely waterproof. This is the world’s first portable power station which can break through severe outdoor conditions, working in rain, snow, wind, or dust storms. It works in both extremely cold and hot temperatures (- 40 °C to 50 °C / – 40 ° F – 122 ° F), and over 5,000 meters above sea level.

Can you imagine being able to charge your phone on top of Kilimanjaro, or boil a cup of coffee while camping in Antarctica, out on the ice?! The DynaYak N35 is the first ever power station of its kind.

How to Train for Mt Kilimanjaro

It’s the biggest question people have before climbing Kilimanjaro, and certainly the one which gave me the most anxiety before my own climb: how do I train so I’m fit enough to get to the top?

Kilimanjaro is a non technical climb, which means it doesn’t require any specialist equipment or climbing experience to reach the top. However that’s not to say that it isn’t incredibly challenging to get to the summit, and training beforehand will definitely improve your chances of reaching the top.

Here’s what I recommend; the training which personally came in handy, and the training I wish I had done.

5 Adventure & Survival Trips to Challenge Yourself

January is the peak time for travel bookings, and it’s at this time that we also set our New Years Reoslutions. Perhaps you’re looking to inject more adventure into the coming year, get into shape, eat better, or just take a vacation to stave off those the post-Holiday blues.
