Watersports in South Africa
Watersports are wonderful to watch, not only for the actual event, but also because they are usually in great locations with wonderful scenery. Riverside dwellers come out in their droves to watch the many canoeing races held throughout the year.
For a very different experience, visitors can watch a whitewater rodeo if they get the chance. Surfing competitions, of course, are always good for a few thrills and spills and the beaches are thronged with spectators who watch, amazed, as kite surfers and boardsailers get lots of airtime.
The rapidly growing sport of surfskiing is also attracting a dedicated following of spectators. More importantly, though, these events attract a large number of international competitors. Sea kayaking is another fun watersport to indulge in while on a South African holiday.
