Earth is called the Blue Planet for there is around 70 percent of its surface was covering by water while 30 percent by land. In spite of running onto the earth, I suppose you are getting interested in exploring this mysterious underground world.

You might not have been able to swim into the water like a mermaid once but I am sure diving underwater to explore the ocean must be one item of your life list even though there is not yet a chance you get to experience.
As a mode of underwater diving, scuba diving needs breathing equipment (completely independent of a surface air supply) to help divers to spend more time underwater. As you should know, the name "SCUBA" is an acronym for "Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus".
It must be great to sink down through the ocean and to view the beauty of marine organism that most of us are hardly to get close to. However, a best dive site in the world will agreeably provide more incredible experiences than a normal one. For example, you will find an wonderful coral garden like you’ve never seen it before in Cape Kri, Indonesia, where cultivates a great marine life including 374 different species of fish.
However, there is one important thing you should pay attention on before planning your first SCUBA diving vacation. That is, you need a scuba certification to do this sport, just like driving a car, because scuba diving requires specific knowledge, skills and training. If you want to call yourself a scuba diver,get a scuba certification first.
Have you ever imagined that you would be a super hero in some story one day? What about trying to experience the feeling of fly first? Here I bring you the newest extreme water sports - Flyboard Flying.
Flyboard sport is known as hydroflying arming the rider like a future warrior. It requires a separate boots installed with a primary nozzle to attach to a PWC (Personal Watercraft) via a long hose, providing propulsion that allows the Flyboard to reach up 22 meters (72 feet) in the air or dive headlong through the water. And the PWC will follow behind the rider at the same time to give you the freedom to go anywhere.
Learning to operate the Flyboard is much easier than you might think. When given proper instruction, you will start flying the Flyboard during the first 5 minutes in the water. Next, you can divert and control that thrust to create any type of movement you want. The coolest thing about flyboarding is the tricks. Now, let’s watch the following video to feel this sports.
