Seahiking is an innovative water sport. Call it playing in the sea for grown-ups, while working on your body and mind on all fronts.
Equipped with a paddle in both hands, you walk along the seafloor, through the surf. In the dynamic North Sea, you get plenty of chances and challenges to move in all kinds of ways: jumping, diving, bodysurfing; going with the flow and bashing against the current. In seahiking, the goal is not to ‘hike’ as far as you can, but to move as diversely as possible and with a maximum amount of playfulness.
The different conditions in the sea require different movements. With a calm sea, it’s all about endurance; with a wilder sea, the focus is on strength and mobility. That makes each session different. In seahiking, the only constant is that it’s always variable!
We do all of this in a safe and healthy way: thanks to the upwards pressure of the water, the risk of injuries is practically none, no matter how much you jump around.
Seahiking is play and sports, but the greatest reward might be the mental one. By literally submerging yourself in nature, you disconnect completely from the world for a while, with nothing else than the waves and your body to think about. This is what many participants get out of the sport.
