Market driver: increasing popularity of riverboarding as a competitive sport
Riverboarding is not just a recreational adventure activity because it is also pursued as a competitive sport by water sports enthusiasts around the world. Numerous riverboarding championships and other competitions are held at the local, regional, and national level throughout the year. The WRA defines the standards for recognizing riverboarding records achieved by the athletes and oversees the international riverboarding competitions at the world and continental levels.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for outdoor gear research, “In a riverboarding competition, the participants are judged based on their free-flow style, riverboard controlling skills, and reaching accuracy near a designated point. Riverboarders constantly enhance their knowledge through training and coaching lessons to improve their skills. Riverboarding competitions are held for numerous different disciplines and have a different set of rules.”

Market trend: rise in water sports facilities worldwide
The recreational water sports market has been growing at a rapid rate, offering new business opportunities to several coastal cities or regions that have water bodies such as rivers or lakes.

Many countries have such water sports tour operators who conduct these activities in small units that are fragmented. Therefore, they do not always have the necessary investment to grow. Thus, many initiatives are being undertaken to promote the proper growth and expansion of water sports facilities across the globe.
