Bored of bootcamp and down on dumbbells? Why not give watersports a try for your exercise fix. From jet skiing and kite surfing to kayaking and parasailing, watersports have risen to being one of the most popular sports for those looking for something new. One of the reasons many are choosing watersports is for the mental and emotional therapy that being in and around water naturally provides. To save you from ‘surfing’ the web with dozens of tabs open, we’ve collected some of the top water activities in the Docks and along the Thames.
