The world of sport is huge today, there are so much World Games and Competitions but also friendly meetings every year, that we will have to watch something every moment in our life and still not be able to see even a small part of everything. The size of it will show you the channels like Eurosport and similar ones and there are over 10 of such.
But in all this there is a group of sports that is particularly interesting to watch and perform, those are water sports, and they are performed in water. Of course, there is besides good swimming also another set of skills required and it cool to see that many games that take place on land like volleyball, handball and others, have their water versions, but many, and actually the most popular ones, are original.
Surfing is one of the most famous water sports around the world, but not everywhere, because a certain size of waves is required and there must no other people, also. In Europe, on the coast on Lanzarote, there is a beautiful beach called Playa de Famara where surfing is taken on a whole different level. The beauty of European sea together with surfing can only become something epic, and if you try it you will see it is.
You made plans for every hour of your vacation. You purchased the tickets one month before the travel, and you are eager to get to your holiday accommodation. When you arrive on time at the airport and wait in line at the security check, the company operating your flight announces a delay due to a technical problem. Can you get reimbursement from the airline? Find here whether technical faults cover flight delay compensations.
Your holiday doesn’t have to be ruined by several extra hours spent at the airport. But after returning from vacation, you should submit your flight details and expenses on the AirClaim calculator, and find how much should the airline refund you in accordance with the European Regulation EU 261.
In most of the cases, flights are delayed by these technical problems:
Sometimes, airlines blame the delay or cancellation on “hidden manufacturing defect,” as some technical issues are detected by pilots when running checks just before departure. Why? Hidden manufacturing defects can be classed as an extraordinary circumstance, and the airline can wave the obligation to provide flight delay/cancellation compensation to passengers.
Airlines are increasingly using this excuse – technical problems – hoping that they won’t have to repay their customers. The truth is that hidden manufacturing defects appear rarely, and it’s unlikely that this was the real reason behind the delay. Probably the crew hadn’t arrived on time, fuelling was delayed, or the airport was congested and caused the late boarding of passengers.
If the delay was under the airline’s control and lasted for more than 2 hours, they have to offer you food and drink, access to emails and phone calls, and accommodation, if it is necessary (you are delayed overnight, and you cannot find a connection). In case the delay is longer than 3 hours and the flight distance over 1,500 km, you could receive up to 600 Euros as flight delay compensation.
More specifically, for 3 hours of delay and a distance shorter than 1,500 km you should get 250 Euros in compensation. When a technical fault causes a delay of 3-4 hours for a flight distance longer than 1,500 km, the airline owes you 400 Euros. But if your plane landed with more than 4 hours delay, the length of the air travel was longer than 3,500 km, and between an EU and non-EU airport, you should claim 600 Euros compensation for a delayed/cancelled flight.
Technical faults cover flight delay compensation, but the airline will try to avoid offering reimbursement. Though, you are eligible for flight delay compensation when you travel from or to a European airport. Was the departure of your flight caused by a mechanical problem? Contact AirClaim now, tell them about your experience, and find you to claim flight cancellation/delay compensation like a pro!
One of the water sports that does not require much skills is scuba diving, you everyone must have seen it and it is just like diving but with a bottle of compressed oxygen that allows the diver to stay longer in water. Everyone can do it men, women, and for an amazing scuba diving experience you should go to Brisbane and maybe take your friends. The water is clear and blue there and the underwater world is quite rich and full of interesting stuff.
Everything is more fun in water
One more thing to try out during life and to put on your bucket list is to go kayaking on some of the big lakes in the world, for example Lake Tahoe and take with you one of those beautiful girls. What makes kayaking interesting is that it happens in a very narrow and long boat, and the team members must be quite coordinated in order to perform as good as they can. The sport can be done also individually, but beware and don't allow the boat to tip over.
Windsurfing is the most beautiful of all water sports, because it happens on the surface of the water and you can see that way everything, and because you are standing on a board very similar to a surfboard, it seems like you are standing on the surface of water. This sport requires a fair amount of skills, because you are in charge of everything there.
The most difficult water sport for beginners must be water skiing, and that is why we see so much fail videos on YouTube of people trying it out. It is just like regular skiing but in this case you are on the water and connected to a boat that pulls you forward. Sounds like fun, I guess.
