Tips for beginner wakeboarders. Technique of getting out of the water

Starting to ride a wakeboard, you may encounter a number of difficulties that will seem insurmountable or surmountable after a series of trainings. However, training has nothing to do with it. No matter how many times you repeat the same mistakes, this will not bring you closer to eliminating them. In wakeboarding, everything is based on the technique of execution, you just need to know what exactly, at what moment and how to do it.

Getting out of the water is the first and main difficulty that a novice wakeboarder will have to face. There are times when a person gives up trying to stand on the board after seeming physical impossibility to do so. However, in fact, getting out of the water does not require absolutely no effort. This can be done by a child, a fragile girl, or a large man weighing one hundred kilograms. It is all a matter of technology and Continue reading

DIY longboard deck

As a rule, people who are going to do a longboard with their own hands do mostly a deck, and they buy special wheels, suspensions and bushings from experienced manufacturers. This is entirely justified, since creating a longboard deck with your own hands is the simplest thing you can do in a longboard and such work requires a minimum of space, time, materials, money and skills. While the creation of acceptable suspensions, for example, will require equipment for casting silumin.

In addition, a deck, if you buy it from an experienced, reputable manufacturer, or even if you buy a Chinese one, which will not be much better than your own, home-made, will cost you half the budget of the entire board. And this is a significant part. The rest of the budget will go to suspensions and wheels with bearings. Continue reading

How does a kite fly?

Any kite, regardless of design, is a wing, not a parachute, as many people think. Therefore, it is generally accepted that any kite does not hang in the air, namely it flies. And this is completely justified, since kite flying obeys all the laws of wing movement in a dynamic air environment, that is, in an oncoming wind stream.

Just like any wing, a kite has a leading edge, a trailing edge and a profile provided by the shape of the wing’s internal structure (ribs for parafoils and balloons for inflatable kites). But what the kite does not have is the wing mechanization system, as is done on airplanes.

It is known that the aircraft is controlled by the so-called steering planes included in the wing mechanization system. There are several of them in different parts of the aircraft, but on the wing there is one main governing body – ailerons. It is with their help that the wing acquires a roll, and with it changes the direction of movement in the air.

The kite, of course, has no steering planes, but if it could not be controlled in any way, then there would be no sense from it. After all, then he could tow a rider only as an umbrella, with a strictly fair wind. But, in practice, a kite rider is Continue reading
