Other individual water sports include wakeboarding, which is surfing while being towed by a fast boat; water skiing; triathlon, which combines swimming, cycling, and running into one competition; kitesurfing, which is surfing with a wakeboard or surfboard pulled by a kite; and skim boarding, which is surfing from the shores towards the deep horizons of the ocean. All these sports require special equipment beyond what is usually found in a standard pool or lake.
The most popular team sport on water is aqua-jogging. Other aquatic team sports include water polo and wet rugby. Aqua-jogging uses exercise bikes that are mounted on inflatable mattresses and driven by motorized bicycles. The athletes wear swimsuits and run on the pedals, which makes it similar to aerobics classes. Water polo is played on a pool floor covered with sand so it's not slippery if you fall. Two teams of three players each try to score goals by throwing a ball into the opposing team's goal. Wet rugby is very similar to ordinary rugby except that the players are allowed to get up out of their seats and walk around during the game. This allows them to pick up balls that have been kicked away from opponents' sticks.
There are also several aquatic classifications of race events including the underwater hockey tournament at the Olympics and the marathon swimming event at the world championships.
In conclusion, there are many aquatic sports that you can play on water. Some are more popular than others but they're all fun to do.

Many of the sports on our comprehensive list involve some form of water paddling. Paddles can be single-bladed or dual-bladed, with an open flat surface at one end for pushing through the water. Or they can be concave, like a scull, for more efficient propulsion.
The types of paddles used in water sports include:
Fishing paddle - Also called a fishing rod, this is the standard length paddle used for walking or swimming across the lake or river to catch fish. The handle is usually made of fiberglass or bamboo and the blade is usually aluminum. Fishing pontoons are also available with paddles attached to them for use inside bodies of water where it's not safe to swim. These are generally made of polycarbonate material but wood is also used instead. They usually have a strap that goes around your waist so you can transport them from place to place.
Kayak paddle - This is the paddle that is used by kayakers when rowing their kayaks. It should be long enough to reach from the stern of the boat to the front, with a slightly curved blade which produces less resistance when stroked back and forth than does a straight blade.
Sculling paddle - This is the paddle that is used by scullers to propel themselves forward.
