Non "main stream" sports

Does anyone participate in sports that are not so mainstream like white water kayaking, mountain boarding (not snowboarding)?

I wrestled for a while in high school and still remain a big fan. It's not very popular and definitely not a mainstream sport.

I'm going to leave this open for now because I know your previous topic about White Water Kayaking:http://gtaforums.com/topic/673505-white-water-kayaking/was ignored so I'll lock that instead.

 

In future try not to open a new topic because your previous one on the same subject didn't go as planned, this should be better as it is more general.

Well. since this topic isn't locked yet, I would like to parcipitate. ;)

 

Yes, I'm a wakeboarder. Not a main stream sport in Europe, maybe a bit more in the US. Any other wakeboarders on here? And if so, do you prefer boat or cable?

I've only been wake boarding once, great sport. How often do you do it? Also, how do competitions work?

I do it almost everyday during summer. I have a job as a wakeboard and waterski instructor.

 

Competitions work similar as snowboarding and skateboarding. You have to do 2 runs, and the judges give points for composition, technique and style.

Wife Carrying. A guy I play rugby with made it to the World Championships which get held in Finland each year. They held the Australian Championships in my home town the year after he won the Aussie championship I'm pretty sure.

If there's ever a sport to encourage your wife to stay slim, that's it. Brilliant.

 

 

Also Rugby? My man, I'm a winger at uni but with the season nearly over and me being in my final year I think my playing days are over.

 

 

@7nvd: Sounds like an awesome sport mate and a summer job.. How did you get into it?

Rugby seems like a fun sport. And my high school actually had a team and when I expressed interest in joining up as a way to stay in shape in the offseason when I wasn't wrestling or Playing football and have fun doing it I was only met with hostility from the guys who were "veterans" even though they only had a couple years experience. They basically all walked around with a smug attitude. Wearing jerseys of the famous European or Australian clubs and acting like they were tough sh*t and Wrestlers and Football players were a peasant race. And if any football players or wrestlers (Especially football players) wanted to join the team they bullied them out of it because they didn't want to risk letting anyone else joining their elitist "tough guy" club. Kind of turned me off to the whole sport.

Grew op near a lake were I started water-skiing at age 9. My brother had a lot of talent and became a pro wakeboarder, and I started to give clinic's and training camps. So we were always everywhere in the wakeboard scene.

 

Summer job is not the right word I guess. I work 8 months a year double hours, the other 4 months I use for traveling and gaming.

A horse from my hometown is going to be in the Kentucky Derby this weekend.

 

It is actually the favorite to win it also. California Chrome.

 

Weird that a horse from my little hometown is in the biggest horse race of the year.

Heh there used to be an advert on TV (skybet maybe?) where a voiceover guy would say "it matters more when there's money on it".

 

It's completely true, but my problem has always been drawing the line and walking away. Even losing money gambling becomes like a drug, and I'm a very compulsive impulsive gambler if that makes any sense...

 

Having said that, get me on a track (horse or dogs, I'm not fussed) and I'm an animal aha.

 

My favourite ever gambling moment probably comes courtesy of Caribbean Premier League T20 cricket, stupidly backed a team to chase 191 only to find that they bloody did it with 4s off of the last 2 balls. Heh, gambling stories are a lot like football manager stories really, nobody really seems to have a clue what it means unless they're there and experiencing it...

 

Also, I was a pretty decent 3 discipline rugby player before knee and shoulder injuries left me washed up at 15...

Anyone played footgolf?

 

They opened a course in my city about a year ago, it's so much fun. It's exactly what it sounds like. You basically play on a golf course but with a football, and obviously the holes are bigger. I've been about a dozen times, it's so addictive.

A new one is opening in Doncaster in June and because I'm in Sheffield a few of the lads and I are going to go and try it. Can't wait. Does it play to a 72 par and stuff like real golf?

The one near me is just a 9 hole course, and you choose whether to play 9 or if you want you can go around again and do 18 holes .There's only par 3 and par 4 holes, and the greens are just astroturf and a bit of a bitch to putt on. So it's obviously not like to the same level as a proper golf course or anything. It has got bunkers n fairways stuff though and It's still really good fun, and you still mark your scores n sh*t and play to par and follow all the normal golf rules.

 

This is what the one near me looks like: (That's not me or anything lol)

Holy crap Footgolf looks fun. and those courses look much nicer than I'd imagined them. I'm fairly certain there's absolutely nothing like that around me, but I'd travel some distance to play if I had to. I bet Paul Scholes would be the end-all champion to this sport.

That looks fun indeed. There's even a Footgolf European Trophy Tour. I definitely need to find out if there's course here somewhere.

Bumping this just to say I had the pleasure of playing Footgolf today, and it's pretty much the best f*cking thing ever. I rate it only behind women's breasts and chocolate.

 

Putting is definitely the hardest part and was pretty unforgiving at times. You could miss a tap in by inches and the ball's momentum would just carry it like 20 feet away. But that's mainly because we were playing a makeshift course, so the "greens" were sometimes dry, uneven surfaces. There were also some holes going uphill, and pretty funny at times when the ball kept rolling back down to you, and sometimes not so funny.

 

Anyways, it was a blast, highly recommend to everyone.

Frisbee Golf is definitely not mainstream.
