Not only are we well-endowed with water around our city state, we also have an abundance of water reserves. You’ll be surprised by how much our perpetually sunny Singapore has to offer when it comes to water sports. It is a haven for water sports lovers!Here’s a laydown of water activities for YOU to check out…Sentosa
- Jetlev (Water-Propelled Jetpack)
Strapped on to a “backpack” that connects you to a small motorboat armed with a massive water pump, I would say this is the most thrilling activity of the lot. (Oh, water skiing is so passé!) Not for the weak, the water pump catapults you right up into the sky as you do your flips and turns, albeit for a little short while unless you have learnt the art of controlling it.

The Banana Boat is an unmistakable activity you often see along the coast if you happen to be by the beach. It is essentially two banana-looking floats joined together
. A much milder ride as compared to the Jetlev, this is a game for all. All you need to do is to stay seated on the “Bananas”, hold on tight to the handles attached, and enjoy the wind in your hair as you ride your way across the sea.

Although Singapore is surrounded by sea, it doesn’t necessarily make waves big enough for surfing. But do not worry; Wave House Sentosa is here! They have created their very own 21st
Century’s “waves” from sheet waves that pump water at high speeds over specially designed walls that allows the generation of barrelling and smooth waves.Choose either The Double Flowrider or The Flow Barrel! The former is ideal for beginners as water flows at a relatively manageable speed of 32km/h, while the latter is challenging enough for experienced surfers as water flows as fast as 48km/h and is said to be similar to waves on the famed beaches of Indonesia.
