Extreme sports in and around our Summer Capital

Fly above the water
You might have seen this but probably never had the opportunity to do it yourself: fly boarding. Standing on a kind of wakeboard you’ll fly above the water and can even make nice movements by moving your feet in different positions. The only things that move you are your feet and waterpower of a jet ski on which you’re attached. Fly boarding is possible at the Mookerplas, about 15 minutes from Nijmegen.

Flying higher to the sky
You can always fly higher. Another thing that you’ve probably seen, but never done yourself: parasailing. Explore Nijmegen, its old city centre and beautiful nature sceneries while sitting under a parachute.
