Albany Region for the Experience Seeker - Riding the Waves

There’s no greater feeling than surfing and that feeling of being part of the ocean, really riding on top of the world. Surfing’s freedom, adventure and creativity rolled into one.  Annabel Candy

Surfing for me is “thrillingly surreal”. There is weightlessness that exists as you are moving quickly but at are standing right on top of the water. The power of the wave pushing your board combined with movement across, up and down the face as you gain speed is the thrilling aspect. Yet you are right in the middle of nature – feeling the air, hearing the break of the wave as water sprays around you and perhaps the sound of a seagull. That’s the surreal part, something you don’t normally experience in a lot of other outdoor sports. -Marc Winitz

Part of the thrill and the challenge of riding waves lies in the variety of waves and weather conditions.   The Albany Region has many beaches where you can ride the waves.

Albany Region for the Experience Seekers - Wave Runner

'the thrill of water, sun, and speed'.

There are so many types of water sports in the Albany Region and one of the most popular and interesting water sports that you can ever take part in is jet skiing.  

For the true lover of water sports, there is nothing quite like cruising a personal watercraft over the waves of one of the Albany Region's many beaches. Often known as jetskiing (after a particular brand of watercraft), this adventure is for up to two people on each WaveRunner.

Jet Skiing is a great way to live life to the fullest this summer, the thrill of blasting off into the vastness of the Southern Ocean and enjoy the water, sun and speed.

Imagine the excitement of Surfing and the tranquil sensation of kite flying; the thrill of giant waves and white foaming waters fused together with the wind against your face. This is a different aero-water sport with double the excitement and double the fun.

Kite surfing is a surface water sport that uses the wind to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard. A kite surfer uses a board with or without foot-straps or bindings, combined with the power of a large controllable kite to propel the rider and the board across the water.
