SKIMBOARDING

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.

YACHTING

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.

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
