Winter wakeboarding

It would seem that wakeboarding is, in general, summer entertainment. Well, at least from the subjective point of view of a resident of the temperate zone of the Earth, to which Russia belongs. We have a clear and distinct change of seasons. Summer, winter: And we are already used to waiting for summer to chase a boat or a winch on our favorite board. After all, it seems impossible to ride a wakeboard in winter when the ice is around. But you want to. Yes, and the form must be maintained, it is relevant in the winter.

Kite management

The kite is controlled in the same way as an airplane – by giving the wing one degree or another roll. As reference points for determining the side of the roll, the attachment points of the slings related to the right or left hand of the rider are always taken. You need to understand that no matter what position the kite is in, the attachment points of the lines on it will not change – the red line will always be left and the blue line right. Accordingly, the red sling should be held in the left hand, and the blue in the right. Same with the ends of the control knob. The red end of the pen is in the left hand, the blue is in the right.

Thus, to give the kite the right roll, you need to pull the right (blue) line. To give the left roll, you need to pull the left (red) sling. Accordingly, when pulling the right sling, the kite will fly to the rider’s right hand, and when pulling the left, to the left. Continue reading

The essence of working with an aerobatic kite

The essence of working with an aerobatic kite is to develop the skills necessary for piloting a full towing kite.

The first thing you need to learn to do is lift the kite into the air and hold it at its zenith, at the point of minimum traction and maximum stability.

To raise the aerobatic kite into the air, it is necessary to lay it on the ground with domed slings to the sky, and the trailing edge to the wind. When laying the kite, the handle should be on the ground at a distance equal to the length of the lines. That is, the slings should not be confused, and the handle should lie next to the kite.
