Is done on a more flat, roundish board than by surfing. And rather than “riding” waves in, the point is to run out in the direction of the water, throw the board down into the shallow water and jump on and use your momentum to skim out.
Then one turns and takes the wave back in, at the point where a normal surfer would be starting to paddle out.
Windsurfing and Kitesurfing
With the surrounding reefs, there are not enough waves to surf on Boracay although one resort offers beginners lessons in its wave pool. With kiteboarding one stands on a windsurfing type board but smaller like for snowboarding (done on snow, it’s known as snowkiting or on land with something a skateboard with large wheels – powerkiting) and is pulled by the wind with a parachute like kite.
Waterskiing, Banana Boat, Glass Bottom Boat and Parasailing
These activities are all available on the White Beach. As of 2007, waterskiing costs about Php900 for 15 minutes and Jet Skiing about Php1,500 for 30 minutes. The popular banana boat ride costs about Php200 each for a minimum of four people.
There are two glass bottom boats allowing you to see Boracay's underwater world while you stay dry. The smaller boat can accomodate 6 to 8 persons and the trip takes around 1 hour. The bigger boat names We Found It, takes up to 30 persons out for one and a half hours. The best time for Parasailing is in the high season during the northeast monsoon where the sea off White Beach is calm at that time.
Banana boat rides, waterskiing, jet skiing and parasailing can be arranged at some resorts or at the Boracay Tourist Center.
