KSnaps Celebrities Summer Sports Hobbies

For many of us, summer is arguably their most favorite season as it allows us to carry out, if not all, a lot of things that we love to do. While going on getaways is the most common thing that we do, others see it as a perfect time to either try out something new or do activities that we’ve missed doing, may it be sports or hobbies – even amidst the scorching heat.

And in this Kapamilya Snaps feature, check out the different sports and hobbies that our favorite celebrities have tried out and that you may want to try this summer!

 

Take up swimming lessons like Jodi Sta. Maria

Being the real go-getter that she is, Jodi is apparently always keen to learn about and experience life more, which she does by exploring the world and learning new skills. Last November 2023, the award-winning actress posted on Instagram a bunch of photos of herself taken from her swimming lessons and shared some of her realizations about it. She stated, “Even on the hardest of days when your body is sore and your limbs are aching, find enjoyment in everything.”

 

Go diving like Donny Pangilinan, Anne Curtis, Luis Manzano, and Jessy Mendiola

There’s no doubt that Donny is naturally athletic and enjoys taking on different sports. Aside from playing basketball and golf, the Can’t Buy Me Love leading man also loves scuba diving. The last time that he did it was last Holy Week break when his family went on a quick escapade to Batangas. He is usually joined by his equally sporty sisters Hannah and Solana, who he regards as his “dive buddeh”.

As we all know, Anne played the iconic Pinay comic character Dyesebel in the hit Kapamilya TV series with the same title in 2014. And the It’s Showtime host channeled the inner mermaid in her again when she went freediving in Panglao, Bohol with her beloved mon amour Erwan Heussaff. Apart from simply marveling at the natural beauty of the underwater, they also got to explore an airplane wreck that dates back to World War 2 and took some amazing snaps with the help of their photographer-friend Martin Zapanta.

Aside from being an in-demand and seasoned host, not many people know that Luis Manzano has also been diving for around two decades now. And the I Can See Your Voice host is able to influence his wife Jessy Mendiola to try the sport, too, who is now a certified advanced open water diver. In one of her YouTube vlogs, the actress brought fans in one of their breathtaking dives and even showed off their underwater photography skills.

 

Enjoy riding the ocean waves on a surfboard like Maris Racal, Heaven Peralejo, and Kira Balinger

Whenever she’s at the beach, one of the things that Maris apparently likes to do is surfing. The first time that she did it was during a fun Siargao trip in 2018. And the Can’t Buy Me Love star has gone to do it in her next beach getaways in the past years, such as in La Union.

Another certified beach babe is Heaven, who officially became a “surf addict” also when she had her vacation in Siargao in 2021. The Linlang actress explained in an Instagram post that this sport taught her to just live life like she’s riding the waves.

Kira had her skills on the surfboard tested for the first time while shooting Star Magic Hot Summer in Baler in 2022. Despite only being a beginner, the Mars Ravelo’s Darna actress did an amazing job riding the waves as seen in the reel she posted on IG. “My whole backside is burnt but it was totally worth it,” Kira shared about the awesome experience.

 

Play golf like Karina Bautista, Joshua Garcia, Ryan Bang, and Amy Perez

Karina tried her hand at golf for the first time last March. According to the Can’t Buy Me Love actress, she decided to try the sport because she wanted to gain a new skill that combines working out and improving her mental health.

On the other hand, it was his celebrity friends who introduced golf to Joshua Garcia. We used to often catch the Mars Ravelo’s Darna leading man on the fairway with Daniel Padilla, Zanjoe Marudo, and Daniel Miranda.

Whenever he’s not busy in It’s Showtime or his array of business, Ryan Bang can be probably spotted playing golf, in which he seems to have found happiness. And he apparently likes playing the most when he’s with his It’s Showtime co-hosts like Amy Perez. He captioned one of his posts, “It’s always a good day on golf day!”

Now in her 50s, Amy Perez continues to have an active and healthy lifestyle by playing the sport, which also helps her relieve stress. In one of her IG posts, she proudly shared the first-ever golf game of her son Isaiah with her and Ryan Bang.

Try out a new sport such as football like Kyle Echarri

Well, football is something that is not new to Kyle anymore as he just made his comeback to the field in 2023 after a long break from the sport. In a previous post, Kyle revealed that football used to be part of his way of life, “I may not be that good at it, but it completes my week when I am able to play.”

Which of these sports are you likely lo try this summer season, Kapamilya?
