Tips for Water Sport Enthusiasts

Water sports like Bovec rafting and Soca river (Slovenia) kayaking are among most popular water sports in Slovenia. While such activities are mainly fun and enjoyable, speed and carelessness can sometimes make them quite dangerous. Here are some tips that can make the experience safe, but still entertaining.

Don’t be Afraid to Ask Questions

Bovec rafting and Soca river (Slovenia) kayaking might be challenging, so it is important that you ask questions and listen to an explanation if you are not certain how to do a particular thing. Sports clubs have a number of professional guides that will be more than happy to answer any of your concerns.

Wear Protective Gear – Always

Even if you are an experienced water sports enthusiast always wear protective gear during Bovec rafting and Soca river (Slovenia) kayaking. Unexpected circumstances can always appear, so it is better to be prepared. Wear a life jacket, because you might find yourself thrown overboard in the middle of wild river rapids. Always put on a helmet before you start, so your head is protected at all times. It might save your life one day.

Dress for the Weather

Make sure you inform yourself about the weather forecast before you head on your adventure. You don’t want to be cold, but you don’t want to be too hot either. If you are expecting cold, even rainy weather wear waterproof clothes or a neoprene suit, with high-quality shoes. This will enable a comfortable trip that will not end up with you catching a cold. Hot weather, on the other hand, can be equally as problematic. Wear sunscreen and do not show too much of your skin. There is not that much shade in the middle of a river, so you will likely get burned if you do not protect yourself.
