Replicating the thrill of fast-paced business outside the confines of the boardroom is easy in The Bahamas, according to the Lifestyle feature in the January-July issue of The Bahamas Investor magazine.

For the growing breed of young, adventurous high-net-worth Individuals (HNWIs), the islands are an ideal setting for kitesurfing, shark diving, big game fishing and many other extreme sports offering an adrenalin rush unmatched by the stock market.

“Exuma is the best location [for kitesurfing] for many reasons,” says Gary Sweeting, who owns Exuma Kitesurfing, based near Georgetown, Exuma. “There is a multitude of sandy bottom beaches and shallow water. It is hands down the best water.”

“Most people who come say it is the best place they have ever kiteboarded.”

The same can also be said of The Bahamas when it comes to diving with sharks.

According to Stuart Cove, who runs Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas and has been taking visitors out for shark interactions for over 20 years, The Bahamas is one of the best places in the world to see the predators in their natural habitat. “There are very few places in the world where you can find healthy populations of sharks.”

“Our dives are really popular, because shark diving is such a rush.”

Read the entire Lifestyle feature on extreme sports in the new issue of The Bahamas Investor out January 1, 2012.
