Get the Best Out of Summer with These Great Outdoor Sport Suggestions

It could get a little too warm for your liking, but you can’t deny that it’s also perfect weather for tons of outdoor sports and activities. Even if you don’t think it’s something you’ll particularly enjoy, summer sports are still a great excuse to go outside and be active. There are tons of options to choose from (be it a calm one or a more adrenaline-inducing one), so it very much depends on your preference and how much time and money you’ll want to invest into it.

Water Sports

Other than hitting an indoor swimming pool or water park, there’s plenty of other outdoor water sports to enjoy. Sure, knowing how to swim would be a great addition, but it isn’t entirely necessary as some options do provide the use of life jackets. Whichever your preference though, you might just want to take a look at some of our water sport suggestions below: 

Swimming

Since you can very well spend other parts of the year swimming indoors, this is your chance to bask in the sun this summer. Whether you’re into competitive swimming or even just floating on the water, this is your time to indulge. 

Suggestion: Little Corona Del Mar Beach, Red Rock Pool, Big Bear Lake West Shore Beach

Surfing

Ever had the urge to do a hang ten? Well, if it’s always been your dream to conquer the waves, summer’s the best time to practice and show off your skills. However, do take note that it’s still a sport with lots of risks, so if your head goes underwater, just remember to stay calm and strike out for the surface. 

Suggestion: Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Malibu Beach, Hermosa Beach

Windsurfing

Don’t feel too disappointed if sailing is out of your reach. If you’re still looking to skim over the waves with the wind in your hair, there’s still the option of windsurfing. About all you’ll need is a good wind and steady and sure movements on the water to enjoy this water sport. 

Suggestion: San Francisco Bay, Dana Point, Lake Hodges, Lake Oroville

Kayaking

For those looking for something a little tamer, there’s kayaking. The level of difficulty increases with stronger water currents, so for beginners, it’s a good idea to start on calmer waters. 

Suggestion: Lake Elsinore, Diamond Valley Lake, Lake Perris, Lake Skinner

Land Sports

You don’t necessarily have to pick a sport that requires more time and money. In fact, there are plenty of summer sports which you can learn on the go, and in case you weren’t aware, most of the revolve around having plenty of fun. We’ll love for you to enjoy yourself this coming summer, so we’ve provided you with our top land sport suggestions right down below: 

Baseball

It’s one of America’s favorite pastimes and if you’re a baseball fan, you either love watching it or playing it, or even doing both. There’s always enough space on the diamond for enthusiasts, but if you’re new to the game, you might want to exceed your expectations by hitting the batting cages first.  

Suggestion: Andulka Park, Knowles Field, Evans Park, Reid Park-Ruth H Lewis Center

Handball

Every once in a while, your competitive spirit yearns to be set free, and there’s no better sport to set it free on than handball. Although this fast-paced team sport is a popular Olympic entree, it’s also a great deal of fun. 

Suggestion: Mike Ward Community Park, Blair Park, Northwood Community Park

Soccer

There are sports that require handling the ball with your hands, and there’s also sports like soccer which emphasize precise footwork instead. For those in the mood to kick around and let loose on the field, now’s your chance to do so. 

Suggestion: Heritage Park Community Center, Rancho Jurupa Regional Sports Park, Arlington Heights Sports Park

Biking

Say what you like about biking, it’s actually a really great way to enjoy the outdoors and stay fit. Since nature has provided us with the opportunity that comes with summer, it seems a waste to leave your bike in a corner, so get ready to venture out and explore the wider world. 

Suggestion: Santa Ana River Trail, Skyline Drive Trails, Mount Rubidoux Trail

Frisbee Golf

Even if your dog is the most enthusiastic catcher of frisbees, the excitement will wear off after a while for you. For a fun, yet relaxing activity this summer, why not visit your local frisbee golf park. You’ll need a couple of frisbees, and you know that’s hardly going to put a dent in your pocket. 

Suggestion: Martha McLean-anza Narrows Park, Rancho Jurupa Park, Riverwalk Park

Rock Climbing

If you get a thrill out of scaling great heights or are just looking to conquer your fear of them, this extreme sport is something you’ll be interested to try out. Like hiking, there’s usually different levels of difficulty to choose from, so just go for something you’ll be able to handle for a start.

Suggestion: Pinnacles National Park, Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree National Park

Beach Volleyball

Nothing is more a part of summer than the scene of bodies jumping up and slamming a volleyball down onto the sand. It’s a really fun sport that’s easy to pick up, and you might even find yourself playing with lots of other enthusiastic strangers. 

Suggestion: Andulka Park, Rancho Loma Park

Golf

If you’re at the stage where your joints and muscles are screaming in protest at the thought of more physical exertion than necessary, there’s always golf. Of course, you needn’t jump straight into investing in a set of golf clubs. Just hit up your local first driving range. If you feel the urge to keep playing after that, then this is the sport for you. 

Suggestion: Jurupa Hills Country Club, Oak Quarry Golf Club, Fairmount Golf Course

There are only so many hours in a day, and if you’ve been itching to spend most of it outdoors, summer will be your best friend. There’s always plenty to do and explore, and you can bet that others feel the same way too.
