Water Sports in Singapore

Many foreigners coming to live in Singapore sooner or later complain about Singapour being a boring island with nothing to do in it.

No wonder the multiplicity of Singapore’s cultural events is a funny joke for a Parisian or a New Yorker. Yet there is a few non-cultural activities one can do on evenings or week ends that will just spice up the daily routine. Among them, water sports @ East Coast.

Wakeboard

Never done it before ? Never managed to stand ? That’s one more reasons to try. Standing on a board is a matter of only a few dozens of tries. If there’s not many people you get to try many times, and that’s a matter of 1 hour or less to learn to stand. And THEN it’s pure FUN for the rest of your life 😉

Nothing to be scared of, a 30 km/h fall (even a spectacular one) in the water is nearly totally harmless. Your worst fear might be minor muscle soreness…or forgetting your SPF.

There is apparently many other wakeboard places in Singapore, mostly the boat-type, the long list can be found here.

For small budgets, consider training at Batam, a full day comprehensive trip with a 1 day unlimited riding pass costs ~100 SGD.

Sailing

Haven’t tried yet but very glad to have found where that can be done.
One place is right near the 360 degree cable wakeboard lake.
