WAKESURFING IS FOR EVERYONE. BUT SAFETY FIRST!

When wakesurfing, make sure you do this safely. This means do not use a boat with an outboard engine or stern drive/in-out drive engine. If you try and surf behind these types of boats, you may fall onto the propeller and suffer serious injury or death. Further, such boats produce high levels of carbon monoxide which can also lead to fatal injury or death. Only wakesurf behind specially designed wakesurfing boats with the propeller safely away from the surfer. At wakesurfection, our boat is designed specifically for wakesurfing with low emissions in accordance with Californian standards and our propeller is safely away from the rider.

HOW DO I GET UP ON THE WAKESURF?

I always get asked if your feet aren't strapped into a board, how do you get up? Watch this video to find out how.

 

 

Using your iphone and can't watch the movie? Then just read these easy steps:

如使用iPhone而不能觀看短片,請閱讀以下簡單步驟:

1. Start off in the water like you would when you wakeboard. The difference here is that your feet aren't strapped into your board. That means you need to use your feet to hold the board steady. All you need to do is bend your knees slightly and extend your feet so that as much as your feet is flat on the board as possible. Your toes should be pointing slightly horizontally. Don't forget that you are using your feet to hold the board steady, not your hands. Both hands should be holding the rope.

2. I will then give you a bit of tension so that the rope will be taught. At this point in time, you can transfer your body weight to your heels and your toesshould now been pointing vertically. This will flip the board up and it will now stick to your feet like glue.

3. I will then accelerate the boat. At this point in time, let the boat pull you up via the handle. Do not pull the handle but instead let it pull you up.

 

4. Stay crouched for a while. Do not get up to early. You should wait at least 5 seconds before standing upright. In this picture, you can see I'm down really low.

 

5. Hold onto the handle and start using your body weight to catch the wave. You should use your front foot as the accelerator and accelerate fast enough so that you are riding the wave. Don't forget to stop accelerating as you approach the boat. You'll notice the rope is quite tight here as I'm using this to keep me steady until I ride the wake. You need to put some weight on your back foot as you get close to the boat to avoid crashing into the back of the boat.

 

6. Once your rope is slack, as per the picture below, you know you are surfing.

 

HOW TO SURF ON YOUR BOARD

OK now that you are up on your wakesurf, how do you let go of the handle and surf? Well watch this video for the steps that let you surf

 

 

怎樣沖浪 

沖浪一定要注意安全。

不要亂用其它船隻,因為普通船隻的驅動器(馬達)是在船後,你可能會掉到螺旋槳里,因此會造成受傷或死亡。此外這些船還會產生高濃度一氧化碳,也會導致身體嚴重傷害或死亡。

我們的船隻是從美國进口,特別設計專用於沖浪或花式滑水, 螺旋槳遠離沖浪者和符合美國加州標準低排放,是最安全和適合沖浪或花式滑水。

怎樣起水

滑水者第一樣要學的是叫起水,即借快艇的高速拖行令他腳踏滑板站起滑行在水面上。很多人問我,如腳不是綁在板上,那應該如何起水?  請觀看以下短片。

1. 起水–即借快艇的高速拖行令你腳踏滑板站起在水面滑行。

開始時你會在水中,如同使用能綁腳的滑水板時起水一樣。不同的是你的腳不是綁在你的滑板上。因此你需要用你的腳保持滑板穩定。所以你要做的是保持膝蓋微彎。儘量使你的腳板平放在滑板,你的腳趾應該指向稍平,別忘記你是用腳板穩定滑板,而不是用你的手,雙手應該抓著繩子。

2. 我會將繩子收緊。這時你可以將你的體重轉移到你的腳跟,這時腳趾應該是垂直的。這樣會將滑板翻起,同時你的腳板將會好像如用膠水般跟滑板連在一起。

3. 我然後會把船加速,這時候船會經由繩子的手柄把你拉起,記住不要拉手柄,而是讓它把你拉起。

4. 保持蹲下姿態一段時間,不要太早站起,應該保持蹲下姿態最少5秒才站起。在這張照片中,你可以看到我在保持很低的蹲下姿態。

5. 抓著手柄,開始用你的身體找浪花,你應該用前腳當成加速器,達到夠快的速度會令你滑水或衝浪。不要忘記減速如太接近船隻。你會發現到繩子很緊,在這張照片中,你可以看到我是用繩來保持平穩,直至我能開始衝浪。如太接近船隻,請把重心放在後腳上,這樣可以避免撞到船尾。

6. 如你的繩子變得鬆弛,你就是在衝浪了。(就如以下圖片)

怎樣滑水

好了,你現在正在衝浪,你如何放開手柄而自由滑水? 以下短片會教你從開始到自由滑水的步驟。你現在知道衝浪的基礎知識了, 請儘快跟我們聯絡來試試吧! 。
