DON'T KNOW WHAT TO CHOOSE?
The hiking option is especially good here as the activity perfectly fits conversation. The changing sceneries and the relaxation from the physical effort offer ideal atmosphere and plenty of topics for oral interaction!
Walking as a recreational activity and sport. Especially among those with sedentary occupations, hiking is a natural exercise that promotes physical fitness, is economical and convenient, and requires no special equipment. Because the hiker can walk as far as he wants, there is no physical strain unless he walks among hills or mountains.
"In Hiking, the Journey is more important than the Destination"
What is surfing but a connection to something beyond our understanding?
It’s this connection that's at the very core of the surfing experience. This connection is addictive, all-encompassing, and sometimes all-powerful. This connection enthralls many to forsake relationships, careers, and even their own health only to emerge ten years down the line, weather-beaten and alone with "only" memories of great waves and great times.
Sandboarding is combination of snowboarding, surfing, and skating, only it's on the sand dunes instead of the wave, snow, or streets.
One of the great things about sandboarding is how it can be used when the surf's poor, the snow's gone, or the skateboarding areas are crowded, and even better, it's a sport that can take you around the world to find suitable places for sand boarding, so it's a great excuse for traveling!
Capoeira is a Brazilian art form which combines fight, dance, rhythm and movement. Capoeira is a dialog between players - a conversation through movement which can take on many shades of meaning.
Playing capoeira helps in the development of diverse social, mental, and physical abilities, and also helps its practitioners to deal with conflicts and fears, overcoming those with confidence, determination and humour.
