    at the same time.
  7. 8) Kitesurfing: This is like wakeboarding where you pull yourself through the water by manipulating a giant kite. It requires plenty of
    coordination if you are to get the most fun, but it is easy if you are able to control your kite.

    of them. This requires a little more coordination, but it’s definitely a top San Diego water activity.
