The Best Tech Equipment For Outdoor Sports

Water Skiing In Ontario

There is absolutely no shortage of high-level outdoor sports for active people.

Fishing, hiking, swimming, mountain climbing, mountain biking, climbing, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, you name it. There is a wide range of unique outdoor sports that can provide much-needed exercise, fresh air and fitness.

Players on the Toronto Maple Leafs, one of North America’s most popular and storied sports franchises, have no shortage of exciting outdoor sporting activities to choose from.

The Toronto area is surrounded by plenty of beautiful mountains, bodies of water (including Lake Ontario) and wilderness. It’s no wonder that Maple Leafs players enjoy the advantages of the beautiful nature around them.

Maple Leafs captain and superstar John Tavares hosted his teammates at his cottage in the small municipality of Muskoka, Ontario. The team got to enjoy some water activities while focusing on training ahead of the 2021-22 season.

The Maple Leafs sit third in the Atlantic Division, and they’re among the favorites to win the 2022 Stanley Cup in Ontario sports betting sites.

Leafs players were happily greeted and welcomed by the Muskoka community during their water skiing adventures.

For outdoor sport enthusiasts who want to enhance their water skiing adventures, EVO.com lists the HO Omni Waterski + FreeMax Bindings and Connelly Aspect Slalom Water Ski as some of the best water ski sets around.

The HO Omni Waterski is designed to decrease ski dragging while enhancing your speed. The Connelly Aspect Slalom Water Ski is designed to help your overall direction and movement, even on sharp turns.

Best Outdoor Technology To Use In New York

Like Toronto, New York is largely surrounded by beautiful bodies of water and mountains. It is a beautiful location for any form of outdoor sports.

New York locals and tourists can sign up for the opportunity to water ski to the Statue of Liberty, which is located on Liberty Island.

Sea the City Jet Ski in New York City, for instance, offers one-hour tours with experts. If you’re looking to buy your own jet ski, you’ll want to use the best possible jet skis to maximize your overall experience on the calming New York waters.

The Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 310XL is listed as the top jet ski of 2022 by DiveIn.com. This model includes electronic cruise control, an audio system and electronic throttle valves. The Jet Ski Ultra 310XL is available across different stores in New York.

The recently released Yamaha 2021 SuperJet is another high-quality jet ski model that should entice outdoor enthusiasts in New York. With a horsepower of over 100, riders can coast on the water of up to 53 MPH.

If you’re looking for a non-water outdoor activity in New York? There are plenty of hiking options, including trails along the beautiful Cascade Mountain, Bear Mountain, Gertrude's Nose and Breakneck Ridge Trail.

A lengthy hike or bike ride of any kind requires a top-quality backpack and smartwatch.

If you’re looking to complete long journeys through the welcoming natures and wilderness of New York, you should think about purchasing something ultra-useful and handy such as the Garmin Instinct Solar smartwatch.

A brand new one will cost hundreds of dollars. But the Garmin Instinct Solar is built with “military-standard toughness”, so you don’t need to worry about damaging it during your physical activities.

The Garmin Instinct Solar also allows users to get immediate notifications through their personal phones. Perhaps the coolest feature of this model? It includes solar charging, further enhancing the item’s battery life.

The Apple Watch SE is another popular and effective smartwatch that should be on your wishlist. This watch is water-resistant, efficiently tracks your workout activities, provides emergency services and notifications.

Drones, GoPros & More

Most active hikers and outdoor sports enthusiasts love to document their travels. As noted above, a smartwatch is an excellent and safe device to use, especially if you’re trying to get away from looking at your cell phone.

If you’re looking to document your adventures, you should consider the purchase of something like a Drone or GoPro. The drones will provide the pristine overhead looks that you can’t actually get to yourself. The GoPro is the easy way to provide a first-person look for your travelers.

Selfie sticks are also a useful tool to maximize the overall look, view and angles of your photos. This is especially safe if you’re trying to take a photo from high points of places like mountains or tall buildings.

TGR Tested: Phantom Slipper Splitboard Boot and Binding System

Is hardbooting a sign snowboarding is finally moving out of its mom's basement? With Phantom's newest Slipper HD boot system, it just might be. The number of snowboarders in the backcountry has been on the rise. Only seven years ago I remember frequently receiving remarks from other recreationalists like it was something novel: “oh a splitboarder.” Even at busy trailheads like Colorado’s Berthoud Pass, it was rare to see other human-powered snowboarders. In the last two or so years I'd be

The Future is Female: Michelle Parker on Women in Action Sports and Media

Michelle Parker taking it all in at Red Bull Formation. Izzy Lidsky photo. Michelle Parker has long been a household name when it comes to action sports. I can remember watching Superheroes of Stoke in high school and seeing Parker and Ingrid Backstrom be the first examples of women skiing big lines I’d ever seen. Parker ended up winning Best Female performance for that film. A Lake Tahoe native, her career dates back to her teens when she began competing in freeskiing before switching to
