Body Surfing & Cliff Jumping

BODY SURFING
The skill of riding a wave without using any kind of buoyant device is called body surfing. There is no use of surfboard or body board in this adventure sport. Usually, body surfers use a pair of specially made swimfins. However, you can also use a couple of other accessories to expedite the process of riding the wave. The Himalayan town of Rishikesh offers some of the most popular sites along the Ganges where you can enjoy body surfing. The adventure sport has no age bar. Anyone who is without any fear of water can choose to indulge in this activity.

One of the most sought after leisure activities in Rishikesh, body surfing uses some techniques. Adventure lovers need not worry about it, as there are expert surfers to give you an introduction to this light adventure sport. Some basic techniques used in this activity are tucking the body and diving back down. The best part about this activity is that you have the control to steer yourself while surfing in the river.

INSTRUCTIONS
Before you start enjoying the activity, you need to figure out the place where the waves are breaking. And then you can place yourself a little beyond the waves. If you want to enjoy a free-style crawl, you need to swim in the very direction which a wave is approaching in. As you know the wave is about to grab you, decide whether you want to take a right or a left direction. If you want to enjoy a longer ride, it is a good idea to turn away from the breaking part of the wave. You can stop stroking, but you need to continue kicking. If you are moving to the right, extend your arm forward in the right direction while keeping your palm down and breaking the water surface. You can streamline the body and continue enjoying the sport as long as you want.

CLIFF JUMPING
One of the most sensational sports to enjoy in Rishikesh is cliff diving or cliff jumping. The exciting adventure sport took birth on the Hawaiian Island of Lana in 1770. From then on, the sport has traveled far and wide. In actual terms, cliff jumping is a milder version of base jumping. There are certain guidelines that adventure lovers have to abide by. In this sport, you climb up a rock to reach the jumping platform, from where take a plunge into the water.

The plunge is take from a height of 30-40 ft above the water surface. There are expert instructors to guide you while you enjoy the thrill of cliff jumping in Rishikesh. The free fall time spans just 3 seconds.

INSTRUCTIONS
With the increase in height of the jumping platform, the entering speed also increases. For example, if you take the plunge from a height of 70 feet above the surface of water, you are going to fall with a speed of 46 metre/ hour. Women need to consult the cliff jumping instructors and select the jumping platform carefully. Gear up appropriately with a life jacket and a helmet before you take jump off the cliff. Rishikesh offers some of the most scenic locations to indulge in the sport. If you are planning to try radical moves, you must evaluate your skills.
