CLIMBING TRIP

by Samantha Davis


My dad and I have both done a bit of climbing at our lo
cal sports centre. So we decided to go on a
trip together, climbing the high rocks along the coastline of a small island. Although it wasn’t far
from where we live, the journey across the sea took quite a long time


but it was worth it!

As we approached t
he island, Dad pointed out the rocks covered in colourful plants, wild goats
and bees, which were once the only signs of life on this now popular place for visitors. The island
has become well
-
known as a climbing venue and the ferry we took across to the i
sland was full of
climbers carrying boots and backpacks.

We arrived at the island’s harbour, full of brightly
-
coloured houses lit by the early
-
morning sun. We
were met by a driver in an ancient old car, arranged by the travel company we’d booked with. The
driver took us to the tiny apartment, which, like the car, had seen better days, but it was
comfortable and we weren’t going to spend much time there anyway.

There are lots of possible climbs up the island’s rocks, and not all of them have been discovered
by climbers, but many have places clearly marked out so climbers can easily see where to put
their hands and feet. All we needed were shoes, ropes and the equipment for attaching the rope to
the rocks, although despite the markings on the rocks, I still ha
d problems! Anyway, climbing is
obviously not without risk, and things can still go wrong, but you’re far less likely to get into
difficulties on the island.

There was a wide range of climbers, both in ability and age, so there was no need for my previous
worries about being the only teenager. Away from the rocks and back in the town, there was a
very sociable atmosphere in the cafes, where we compared notes on what we’d achieved that
day.

One day, our climbing destination was a rough cliff, with very litt
le to put my hands and feet on. It
was amazing how quickly I learnt to attach my rope onto the rock to avoid falling as I climbed!
Then I realised the boy climbing next to me was someone I knew. We waved, smiled and moved
on, although he seemed to find the

rock far less of a challenge!

Once Dad and I were down at ground level again, we stopped at a beach, which was deserted.
We walked along with our feet in the water and promised ourselves that it wouldn’t be the last time

Water
-
skiing barefoot

by Dan Thomas

Have you ever been barefoot water
-
skiing? It’s just like no
rmal water
-
skiing, being pulled
along behind a boat at 40 mph


but without any skis! It sounds scary but it’s amazing! My
cousin used to take me water
-
skiing, and that’s where I first learnt to stand up and balance.
But I moved on to barefooting when I di
d it for a laugh with some mates. And I loved it!


Barefoot water
-
skiing is one of the most popular watersports there is


to watch, anyway!
When someone jumps really high and then lands, it’s awesome. And you don’t need
expensive stuff like boards, althou
gh a wetsuit’s a good idea. But catching your toes on things
in the lake can hurt. I guess you can’t help getting water up your nose when you start
learning, too, as you have to lie almost flat in the water before you pull yourself up


but it’s
OK.


Now I
’m experienced, I’ve learnt not to attempt new moves in rough water as it never goes
well. Instead, I make sure I limit myself to skiing directly behind the boat, where the water’s
calmer. I ask the boat drivers to warn me about big waves coming, although
they can’t always
see them.


Finding time to practise regularly is hard as I’m still at school


but then it’s not as if I’m into
winning prizes and stuff. But if I want to learn a new move, I need to repeat it over and over,
and that’s not easy in winter
when it’s cold. Lots of skiers say they’ll continue during cold
weather, but not many do. So I’m often the only one out on the lake!

equipment is needed, it isn’t cheap.





B

If your feet hit something in the water, it’s painful.





C

If you start in the wrong position, you breathe in water.

-
skiing?

a bit colder!


B

The boat travels along in the water
at quite a speed, but it’s not as
frightening a
s you’d think!


C

It’s a fantastic water sport to watch


it’s just a shame more people
don’t enjoy going to see it.


D

If I can fit enough practice of the
sport in with my studies, I’m hoping
to win a prize.
