Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) June 24, 2009 -- Wakeboard Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Wakeboard Equipment Tips. This is part of a new community website that is all about Wakeboarding Equipment. Members and non-members can visit this Wakeboard Equipment Tips page on the Wakeboard Zone website for free at: [http://www.wakeboardzone.org].
Here is an excerpt from the new Wakeboard Equipment information webpage:
" It is good to start with the wakeboard itself. A wakeboard is a single âwater skiâ board, slightly shorter and broader than a regular skateboard. A wakeboard comes with fixed wakeboard bindings to secure your feet when you are riding it or just standing sideways like as if on a skateboard. Since a wakeboard is generally made of light material, it can , turn faster, jump higher, flip over and pull off harder than what you have experienced with other sport boards. Hence, you need a great deal of balance for wakeboarding and performing stunts.
A wakeboard is affixed to a motor boat that tows the board and creates the wake at the same time. In appearance, it appears similar to a water ski boat although actually it is a lot heavier. If you watch a wakeboarding boat closely, you will also find it differently shaped meant for creating the wakes. It has a tower pole called pylon at its rear to which the wakeboard rope is generally mounted. The pylon prevents sliding and also balances the boat.
The wakeboard rope connects you to the wakeboarding boat. This wakeboard rope is tied to tower of boat at one end and the rider holds the other. However, as a rider you are not to hold the rope directly in your hands. Instead, it is tied to wakeboard handles, which you need to hold with both your hands. The wakeboard handles are aided with special grips to provide you a firm, non-slippage clasp. These are generally designed in a slightly carved elliptical shape with a smooth rubber surface."
