1. Go kite surfing in the Bahamas A sport definitely not for the out of shape, elderly or infirm. Kite surfing combines a small surf board with a large kite. Cross currents lift the kite, allowing the harness-wearing surfer the chance to hang in the air, do a few tricks and show off for onlookers before landing back on the waves. It requires flexibility, upper arm strength and certification before you’re let loose on the water. Optional accident insurance is available.
