Seattle, WA (PressExposure) May 25, 2009 -- Wakeboard Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Wakeboarding. This is part of a new community website that is all about Wakeboarding Members and non-members can visit this Wakeboard page on the Wakeboard Zone website for free at: [http://www.wakeboardzone.org]
Here is an excerpt from the new Wakeboard General information webpage:
âWhile wakeboarding the rider usually wears a wetsuit and moves towards the wake or drift away from the wake to perform the tricks. Jumps are attempted by striking the wake and leaping into the air. The rider can also take help of the slide bar and ride while keeping the balance. After getting accustomed to the usual stuff of skateboarding, the rider can perform the tricks being lofty in the air. On tightening the wakeboard rope the rider achieves speed towards the wake. Gradually, the tightened rope launches the rider at a point up in the air where he attempts to perform tricks.
Sizes and shapes of wakeboards vary depending on the riderâs personal preferences and body weight. The bigger the board, the better it edges and floats. However, larger boards adversely affect the performance of advanced stunts. Motor boats pull wakeboards across the water and the wakeboarder pops off a large wake behind the boat and performs tricks. He or she sails above water aiming the wakeboard towards the sky.The riding arts are also determined by the boards camber or rocker. The rockers favor smoother and faster ride without surface resistance. These cambers and rockers are meant for favoring more air tricks during the wake. While riding, the wakeboarders hold on the towropes which are hooked to the boat.â
