As summer is fast approaching, everyone is looking to get outside more and enjoy the beautiful weather we have all so dearly missed. It is good to get outside in the summer and be active rather than sitting inside watching Netflix all day. Here are just a few ideas to make your summer one of the best yet.

One of my favorite things to do is to go long boarding. I didn’t get into long boarding until about two summers ago. Now I enjoy going on long board rides on cool trails around the area. It is the best to go long boarding around sunset when it is starting to cool down a little, so it is the perfect temperature and the sky is always gorgeous. Ally Koopman shares her thoughts about long boarding:  “It is just a fun way of getting around. It is fun when you get on a smooth surface and just cruise around. You also don’t have to worry about anyone stealing it like a bike because you can pick it up and carry it around.”

Another one of my favorite things to do is to go hammocking in the woods and just relax. It is the best to find a pretty spot by some water and just relax and listen to music or take a nap. It is so relaxing because you are still outside enjoying the gorgeous weather but still get to relax and nap if you want. Brock Sorenson states,“Hammocking is a nice way to relieve stress, and it’s good for the soul.”

Playing spikeball is also very fun and a great thing to do with your friends. I find that it often gets very competitive, but I guess that just adds to the fun of the game. Spikeball is a game that is normally played 2 on 2 and is kind of a funky combo of four square and volleyball. A tight hula hoop-sized net is placed in the middle of the players at ankle level. You then smack the palm-sized ball onto the net so then it ricochets up at your opponents. Cole Jurek explains why he enjoys spikeball: “Spikeball is a basic backyard game on the outside, but incredibly fun and competitive when you really get down to it.”

Rollerblading is also a very fun summer activity that also allows you to get outside. It is fun to rollerblade to go get Rock Solid or a smoothie from Liquid Assets because it is often hot so a cool drink is the best thing. Rollerblading is also a great exercise and a great way to be active with low impact. Katrina Schiller shares why she enjoys rollerblading so much, “I like rollerblading because it’s faster than running and you can be on your phone.”

It is always great to get outside in the summer, and I hope you all have an amazing summer filled with fun activites!
