Did I achieve my 2022 goals ? See for yourself here...

What are my goals/Bucket List adventures for 2023 ? Watch the video below πŸ‘‡

Cable Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing at Orlando Watersports Complex

No comments:
Cable Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing at Orlando Watersports Complex

The popularity of cable wakeboarding parks has been growing since the first time we wrote about it in 2010... And Florida ranks first place in the U.S. by the number of cable wakeboarding parks, and the time they're open...

Personally, I got to try cable wakeboarding for the first time in Tampa, FL in 2011... Even though it was my second time trying out wakeboarding ( the first was wakeboarding behind a boat, and it was a bitch ! ), cable wakeboarding was much easier to learn !

This time I brought my 14 y.o son who'd never done any kind of wakeboarding, but it only took him a few runs to get used being pulled by the cable...

If you're in Orlando, FL, and want to give cable wakeboarding a try, stop by Orlando Watersports Complex that offers cable wakeboarding lessons for complete beginners...

Besides cable wakeboarding, Orlando Watersports Complex also offers water skiing, kneeboarding, and wakesurfing lessons !

Wakesurfing has been on my Bucket List for a long time, and I finally got to cross it off my list !

Their lessons come with an instructor who will help you learn fast and become better at wakeboarding/wakesurfing. They also have several different lesson packages available, so you can choose the one that meets your needs the most ! You can even get one that includes video analysis so you can see what you’re doing right or wrong while out there on your board behind the boat.

Check out the YouTube video below of our experience at Orlando Watersports Complex :


But even if you're not into "extreme sports", Orlando Watersports Complex could be a great place for the family with kids to visit !

Their Aqua Park features a modular series of interlocking climbing obstacles, pathways, slides, and features guests can jump off and swing from. This floating obstacle course allows for endless fun and activities for people of all ages and skill levels, and is a great place for birthday parties or just a day out on the lake with friends!

We think that Orlando Watersports Complex is worth a visit !! We recommend it as the best place for wakeboarding/wakesurfing/water skiing, and just plain fun in the sun with family and friends ! 

The main reason we believe it's a great place is because of its location... It's conveniently located only ~20 min away from both Orlando downtown, and Orlando's main attractions ( Disney World/Universal/Sea World ) !! 

And if you're looking for more adventures to cross off your Bucket List while visiting Florida, subscribe to our YouTube channel where we shared more of our own adventures such as :

Bucket List Achievements 2020/2021, and Goals for 2022

No comments:
ExtraHyperActive Bucket List 2022

At the end of 2019, when I wrote my last ExtraHyperActive Bucket List report 2019/2020, as always, I had quite a list of ambitious goals for 2020 😎😍

But just like most people, I couldn't even imagine that the next 2 years would be absolutely unprecedented, unpredictable, and straight up frightening πŸ˜±πŸ’©

With the introductions of lockdowns, and numerous restriction on (air) travel, and social gatherings/group activities, most of my adventure travel plans were doomed πŸ˜₯

But the first blow to my plans didn't even have anything to do with COVID...

One of my BIGGEST dreams/goals ( to fly in a hot air balloon in Winthrop, WA !! ) that I've had since 2010 (!!), got cancelled b/c of the weather conditions 😑

But it was still a pretty amazing trip ! 

If you ever plan to visit Washington state ( winter and/or summer are always the best times !! ), Winthrop is one of the most unique, and amazing destinations in this state ! 

It's a great place to visit for "tourists", but especially fun for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in one place !


Since we couldn't travel a whole lot not only internationally, but even domestically, we spent most of 2020/2021 enjoying the great outdoors of our beautiful WA state !

In 2020/2021, my son and I did a lot of snowboarding, surfing, paddleboarding, hiking, biking, and backpacking !













Unfortunately, in 2020, I had to shut down my local business "Seattle Kite, Surf, Paddle", but we continued "shredding" πŸ„, and making money online through affiliate marketing on my blog "Land Paddling USA"...


We even got to try a new "board sport" - kitwing boarding !


Another outdoor activity that we started learning in 2019, and continued through 2020/2021 was fishing !

We tried fly fishing, peer/dock fishing, and then got into SUP/kayak/canoe fishing !







Another new Bucket List adventure we got to write off our Bucket List was hunting !

It was an absolutely amazing experience, and in the future, we'll be focusing more on both hunting & fishing !


Until 2020, I've never been a huge "gun nut"... I did go on a few target shooting trips with my friends back in the days, and took my kiddo clay shooting when he was 10, but never really enjoyed shooting ( at targets )...

But in 2020/2021 with the rise of violence, and the possibility social unrest ( or straight up civil war ! ), I decided to invest in a few firearms, and to have more practice for both myself and my son...




Along with hunting/fishing, target shooting/survival/self-defence  will be something we'll be focusing more on in the incoming years....

B/c of limited travel, another cool adventure/business venture we started was "overlanding"/car camping !


I started an Amazon affiliate site "Best Rooftop Tents", and also made money renting out my Jeep on Outdoorsy.com, while making extra $$$ participating in their affiliate program !
On the side, I was making additional CASH flipping rooftop tents on sites like Craigslist, OfferUp, and Facebook Marketplace !

As for my (outside the state ) travel plans, the only new place I got to visit was Texas... 

And I had absolutely a blast in that state !


I went on a week long road trip visiting Dallas, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio !

Being ExtraHyperActive, the highlight of my trip was visiting BSR Surf Resort in Waco !



 
So what are my plans/goals for 2022 ?

To be completely honest, I'm pretty pessimistic about the future...
But if you know me, you know that I'm a huge believer in creating your own life !!

And this blog, and this category ( My Bucket List ) is my proof that YOU too can live the life of your dreams... AS LONG AS YOU KNOW HOW TO SET CLEAR, REALISTIC, EMOTIONALLY CHARGED GOALS !!

This year, instead of writing about my plans for 2022, I decided to create a YouTube video ( if you have time to watchπŸ‘‡ )

5 Practical Tips That Guarantee To Help You Achieve Your Life Goals, and Fulfill Your Bucket List

No comments:
The main reason most people fail to stick to their New Year resolutions, to achieve their life goals, and to fulfill their Bucket Lists is simply because they don't know how !

Goal setting is a structured process that, if followed, guarantees to help you achieve your goals !
Contrary to popular belief, there is the science and strategy of how to accomplish your goals.

What exactly is "Goal Setting"?

"There's no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences." - Jack Welch

In 2017, I made a choice to spend more time on my business(es).  
And as a consequence, I got to spend less time doing what I love - traveling, working out, and hanging out with my son 😠😒

And despite of my belief that "if you focus on your goals, if you work hard, if you put in time, and effort, it will pay off"... I saw very mediocre results.

Surfing in Tofino

If you're a surfer in PNW, "surfing in Tofino" should be on your Bucket List ! While surfing itself is pretty mediocre, just the road trip from Seattle to Tofino is an adventure of its own worth adding to your list !

Flyboarding For Beginners : How It Works


Flyboarding is the newest and most exciting water sport, and has been growing all over the world in the last couple of years !

Flyboard allows you to go up to heights of 30 feet in the air and dive under the water an shoot straight out again, exactly like a dolphin !

It's been growing in popularity in the last 5 years, but it's still perceived by most people as "an extreme sport".

In this blog post, we want to debunk this myth, and in our video we'll show you how anybody can have fun flyboarding !

Land Paddling On A Snow Day In Seattle

No comments:

Land paddling in Seattle is not really a year round activity. 


It rains a lot most of the year, and in fall/winter, when the temperatures drop, only the most dedicated spend time land paddling, and having fun.  


Land Paddling On A Snow Day In Seattle

And we at "Seattle Kite, Surf, Paddle" are among those crazy ones who enjoy land paddling in any weather !

There is something special about land paddling in the snow ! It's like combining longboarding, snowboarding, and paddleboarding in one.

My Bucket List : 2017 Achievements & 2018 Goals

"What you GET by achieving your goals is not as important as what you BECOME by achieving your goals" ~ Henry David Thoreau



Maybe I'm getting too old, by it seems like 2017 has flown by so fast I didn't have time to really notice it.

In 2016, I made a decision to spend more time on my businesses rather than on my adventures...
But the best part of running your own fitness & travel business is that you DON'T HAVE TO COMPROMISE ! 

As you might know, another one of my favorite quotes is : "Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life" ~ Confucius 

And that's exactly how 2017 was ! I didn't work a single day !

Ski AND Surf Lake Tahoe

Surfing Lake Tahoe

Recently, I read it somewhere that Lake Tahoe had been ranked the No. 1 ski destination for the 2010-2011 season. I can't comment on that since I've never been to Lake Tahoe, but can say one thing: if I ever make it there it's not going to be ( just ) skiing...

Bucket list Ideas : Volcano Boarding In Nicaragua !

No comments:
volcano boarding in nicaragua


Believe it or not, "volcano tourism" is a popular, and growing travel trend. Every year millions of tourists make active and dormant volcanic areas their preferred destination, either for recreational purposes and sightseeing, or perhaps as an adventure trip involving more extreme activities such as hiking, climbing, camping, taking a hot air balloon trip over volcanic landforms like in Capadoccia, Turkey.

But recently, one activity/adventure has become especially popular - volcano boarding !

What The Hell Is River Bugging ?

No comments:
Here, I present you another relatively new, crazy, adrenaline-filled water sport -river bugging.
"What is river bugging?" - you ask. In a nutshell, it's river tubing with a twist.



Instead of a tube, you sit in an ... inflatable armchair, pitting your wits (and other parts of your anatomy) against fast-moving rapids, bouncing off rocks and rafting down eddies into icy pools of water below. Your hands are covered in webbed gloves and you also wear short flippers, to help you manoeuvre around the river currents. You also wear the standard "whitewater outfit"- (full body) wetsuit, PFD and a helmet.

Parahawking- Flying Like A Bird...With A Bird.

No comments:


The video below is absolutely beautiful !

When you go parahawking, you are not just flying like a bird - you are flying with one. And there's only one place in the world you can do it: Pokhara, Nepal and doing it is as awesome as it sounds.

If it's too much to digest, let me first explain what parahawking is.
Parahawking is a fusion between Falconry and Paragliding. Falconry is a huntung sport where birds of prey are trained to hunt prey. Parahawking is different, our birds of prey are trained to fly with Paragliders and to guide them to the thermals. Parahawking also gives you a unique opportunity to interact with birds of prey in their own environment.
When parahawking, you soar with trained Egyptian Vultures, which are an exceptionally unique species of bird. Not only are the Egyptian Vultures incredibly intelligent (they're one of two bird species in the world that use tools to source food (they will actually pick up and drop rocks to break into eggs) but they are incredibly energy efficient. The vultures rely on warm pockets of air, called thermals, to achieve lift — allowing them to soar with minimal effort. The higher they soar, the wider their perspective becomes, allowing them to more easily source food. If there are no thermals, the Egyptian Vulture will find a tree to perch on and conserve energy until it's ready to try again.
