2023 New Year Resolutions… spending more time on the water!

Posted by Carolien Henn on Jan 4, 2023 8:00:00 AM


Here is our list with tips on how to fulfill your resolution to spend more time on the water.


  • Take a course
Start or upgrade your skipper’s license, take a first aid or water safety course, or volunteer at the NSRI. There are several opportunities to improve your boating knowledge and boating experience and to get (more) involved in the boating community. 
  • Participate in a local fishing competition.
There are several fishing competitions hosted around the country every year, sometimes entry with shore angling, kayak, jet ski, or boat. Who knows maybe you are lucky enough to win a prize! 
Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for fishing events where Suzuki is a sponsoring partner!
  • Visit your local Ski Boat Club
It is scientifically proven that when you are surrounded by people who share your passion, you are more likely to dedicate more time to it in your schedule. 
Getting on the water is the perfect way to distance from technology for a while and is also beneficial to people’s health. Read our blog on Boating Health Benefits 
  • Visit a new and unique boating destination
South Africa has a diversity of water systems, dams, rivers, and a spectacular coastline that can be accessed by boat. This is where being part of a boating community comes in handy, to get recommendations and reviews on boating venues. Read our blog on launching a new launch site for the first time  
  • Invest in accessories for diverse boating activities 
Several boating activities cater to a diversity of interests, such as water sports, fishing, diving, birdwatching, sunbathing, etc. These diverse activities and expeditions you can do with your boat, will make sure there is something for everyone and will get the whole family involved.
  • Take part in Clean Ocean behavior
We all want to spend time in our beautiful waterways free from rubbish. It is also our responsibility to ensure that our waterways are looked after for ourselves, and for future generations to come. With the extensive amount of rain we received over most parts of the county recently, a lot of plastic and rubbish has washed down and polluted our rivers, dams, and coastal shoreline. 
Suzuki Marine has the Clean Ocean Project with three main objectives to reduce plastic packaging, the ocean clean-up activities, and collecting micro-plastic waste. We encourage everyone to contribute to keeping our waterways clean. 
  • Make sure you have the right outboard to go further, faster for longer!
The Ultimate Re Power for the new year is a brand-new Suzuki on the back of your boat. This choice will give you peace of mind knowing you have quality, durability, and performance powering your boat and will take you further, faster, for longer!

We wish you a prosperous 2023 with frequent water time!
