Giving Outdoor Sports a Try (Skateboarding And Disc Golf)

As I had mentioned in my post about what I am planning to achieve and my goals here, sports was one of the things that I needed to focus on.

This is why I decided it is time that I wrote about it here to get started! As I spoke about the two sports last time I want to get into skateboarding and disc golf.

The key reasons being that they are cheap and social activities which means more people time while playing the sport. I hate sports where its just me doing something, I need interactions and stuff.

So let’s look into some benefits of each of the sports and see how well they will work for me and for everyone reading this blog.

Skateboarding – Life of a skateboarder

Now I personally have never tried skateboarding as I had a mother who was very cautious about my injuries but now as an adult I want to give it a try and work on it.

To start off I will have to learn how to ride a skateboard but luckily a guide by outdoor sporty explains it really well so I won’t have any trouble getting started.

Like any sport skateboarding too has lots of benefits but because I am mainly getting into it for the health benefits, let me share some with you.

Helps with flexibility: Skateboarding requires that you remain limber and focus on yourself while keeping your body loose at the same time. This important for our modern lifestyles because of the fact that sitting infront of our computers 8-10 hours per day makes our body very stiff.

Building Physical Endurance: Skateboarding is such a fun activity that once you get started, it is hard to stop and that helps with building up your endurance.

Co-ordination improvement: This is the one I need the most, I am so clumsy that it is impossible to think that I even have any coordination. When skateboarding you have to be coordinated and that is a fun way to get better at it.

Transferable: It helps that if I ever want to snowboard or surf board I can apply the same skills on them and learn those sports quickly too. Which is a great thing cause why limit ourselves to one sport right?

Disc Golf – Golf in budget!

Here is the thing, I love golf. Ever since I was a kid but I could never afford it because it was expensive as hell then and it is expensive as hell now to get into. Calculating the memberships and clubs alone can cost so much that I never tried to get it. Luckily there is one sport that I had never heard about until recently.

That sport is disc golf. Now I personally don’t know much about disc golf like how to play disc golf but I am interested in giving it a try only because it has the same rules as normal golf.

One of the things I loved about golf was that you needed to focus your best. Your focus was everything in that sport and seeing as I lack focus it is appropriate that disc golf is a sport that I need to give a try.

Let me know in the comments what sport are you willing to try this season and what sports I should give a try that I must have missed.
