Skimboarding is an underestimated sport on the board, the progenitor of which is surfing. Only skimboarders ride more often than not on the crest of a wave, they are well suited for shallow water, wet sand and even wet grass on a golf course. Arriving on the sandy beach, you can see a whole view on the beach. Skimboders start from the wet sand, return to shore, while doing 180 and 360 degrees U-turns, surprising the enthusiastic audience.
More recently, this sport has become known around the world. However, he was born almost 100 years ago in the small resort town of Laguna Beach in Southern California, where the coast is indented with cliffs, small cozy beaches are hidden from roads and prying eyes. Continue reading
At the words yacht, yachting, sailing, a picture immediately appears in my head – the warm sea, the sun, snow-white sails, girls in swimsuits and tanned young people in shorts. So it is, if you take a boat on a charter in the summer and go on a cruise along the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, yachting is multifaceted and interesting not only for such trips.
It is difficult to say when a person first used a sail to move on water. Historians cannot give a definite answer to this, but they are inclined to believe that somewhere between the time he began to walk on two legs and the way he invented the wheel. In those days, a sailing ship was, most likely, a raft or a dugout with a skin raised on a pole and was able to reach a speed of a couple of kilometers per hour. Today, NASA engineers consider the shape of the hull and sails of the racing yacht, and the budget of the team participating in international competitions is comparable to the budget of the Formula One team. The speed record for sailing today is more than 60 knots (110 kilometers per hour). Continue reading
Windsurfing is a type of sailing. This entertainment consists in running on the water a small board with a sail. The projectile itself is called a “sailing board” or “windsurf”, it consists directly of a small board (2 – 4.7 meters) made of floating material and a flexible sail.
In fact, this is also a sailing vessel, but without a helm, instead, it is controlled by tilting the mast and sail, or by tilting the board itself directly from side to side. A similar method is used when planing. Speed control depends on the installation of the sail relative to the wind, which is carried out using a boom (the crossbar for which the athlete holds).
Despite the dependence on the wind, water spaces can be plowed with any of its strength. It all depends on the practice and dexterity of the windsurfer. In addition, it is possible to perform some tricks (jumps, coups, etc.), but this is the lot of professionals. Continue reading
