If you think that water activities on our sunny island are limited to water theme parks like Adventure Cove and Wild Wild Wet, think again. Singapore is, in fact, home to a myriad of affordably priced water sports like wakeboarding and windsurfing – you won’t even need to travel to other countries to have a splash.

If you prefer to nua the day away, there’s even a lazy river with an entrance fee at the price of a Kopi O.


1. Flowboarding – from $12

You can choose to go for the Double Flow Rider, priced from $35/hour or $12 for a single try just to experience a teaser, where there’ll be a gentle wave flowing at a constant 32km/hour. You can opt to lay on a bodyboard if you have trouble balancing.
