|How to perform windsurfing wave jumps|
|Wednesday, 28 November 2012 18:54|
The highest wave jumps ever scored in windsurfing always demand technique, gear, ideal ramps, strong winds. So, how do you fly away with your windsurf board and sail?Windsurf jumping is not a beginner’s move. Once you feel your windsurfing has improved in the open ocean, you may start enjoying air time showdown. Wave jumps can easily be trained in small surf or wakes before trying it out in medium range wave faces. As a matter of fact, speed is critical to get airborne. If you’ve got waves and 15 knots of wind, you’re ready to reach the skies, step by step. Grab fast windsurf board and the adequate sail for the current wind conditions. The key to gain speed is early planing. So, find an inside raceway and accelerate. Try to absorb the impact of small speed to keep your high velocity. Try to get the windsurf board flatter to reach a maximum speed and when you hit the perfect wave ramp or bump, prepare to unhook, pull up your front arm and legs to take off. You’ll notice that the combined effect of the wind, sail and wave energy will propel you into the sky. Naturally, as you board gets power from the wave and pops off, it will force your legs to slightly bend. Windsurf jumps may get higher if you turn the nose of your board upwind, avoiding an unwanted spin. This will also help you having a smoother landing. Also, a good wave jump will see the windsurf sail almost parallel to the water and the windward rail raised, as if they both get a wind boost from the bottom. It is always better to land the wave jump. You should only leave your windsurfing gear if you think you’ll hurt yourself or other wave rider. You can land your wave jump with the nose or tail. Nose landings are safer and will have a lower impact on your bones and knees. The world’s best wave jump windsurfers are Philip Koster, Jonas Ceballos, Robby Naish, Víctor Fernández, Dario Ojeda, Ricardo Campello, Dany Brunch, Boujma Guillot, Levi Siver and Jason Polakow. They can reach more than 30 feet (nine meters) up in the sky, although Philip Koster has unofficially hit 60 feet (59 meters). Chop hopping on flat waters can help you train windsurf jumping by forcing you to get the fin out of the water. Oxbow Ride the Sky and Red Bull Rocket are the most important air time windsurfing events. Sailors get GPS devices on their boards to measure amplitude, speed and height.
|Taylor Jensen is the 2012 ASP World Longboard champion|
|Thursday, 29 November 2012 09:26|
Taylor Jensen has been crowned the 2012 ASP World Longboard champion after claiming the ShenZhou Peninsula Pro, at Wanning Island, in China.The US nose rider defeated Ned Snow, from Hawaii, in crisp and clean 2-3 foot (1-1.5 meter) surf at Riyuewan, Hainan Island. Jensen was still recovering from ilness, but he sealed the dream. “I didn’t know how bad my sickness was going to be,” Jensen said. “But it knocked me flat for 48 hours. It was touch and go as to wether I was up to surfing, my first heat was sketchy. It all came together, I got better everyday as the contest went on”. “You hear guys like Kelly Slater talk about building momentum through contests, and how the guy with the highest heat total usually loses in the next round. So I knew that getting through heats wasn’t a bad thing, I felt like I hadn’t surfed my best yet and that there was still something left in the tank.” Taylor Jensen reconquered the ASP World Longboard title that he had won, last year, in Italy. “It doesn’t seem real yet,” Jensen said. “My win in Italy just set in last week. It was always a goal to get more than one ASP World Longboard Title to solidify the first one, but to go back-to-back and now have two is amazing. I’m speechless. I haven’t even realised it happened yet.” Citi Pacific ShenZhou Peninsula Pro Final: Taylor Jensen (USA) 17.65 def. Ned Snow (HAW) 9.75 Citi Pacific ShenZhou Peninsula Pro Semifinal: Heat 1: Taylor Jensen (USA) 13.00 def. Nelson III Ahina (HAW) 12.10 Heat 2: Ned Snow (HAW) 16.67 def. Kai Sallas (HAW) 13.10
|Chris Lockwood accelerates at the Cervantes Speed Trials 2012|
|Thursday, 29 November 2012 10:37|
Chris Lockwood has taken the Cervantes Speed Trials 2012. The speed windsurfing event is held 200 kilometers north of Perth.The small fishing town of Cervantes is known for its windy conditions and excellent tracks for speed windsurfing. In two days of ocean races and general free sailing, there were great records being registered by the GPS devices. Up to 17 windsurfers have accelerated at, at least, 60 km/h (32.3 knots). Chris Lockwood was the fastest wind rider by registering a speed of 71 km/h (38.3 knots). Actually, Lockwood was the only clocking in the 70 km/h range. On the first day, the Cervantes Speed Trials 2012 saw 35 knots blowing in the regatta field. On the second day, winds were lighter in the 15-20 knot range. Sailors reported speed differences between the GPS devices and the radar gun. That can be explained by the direction to where the radar was aimed, which is not always registering the fastest speed of each windsurfer.

Sebastian Zietz has conquered the Reef Hawaiian Pro 2012, in Haleiwa, Hawaii. The surfer from Kaui has secured a seat in the 2013 ASP World Tour.Zietz has sealed the first major win of his five-year pro surfing career. The 24-year-old surfer defeated John John Florence, Fredrick Patacchia and Alejo Muniz in the final heat of the Reef Hawaiian Pro 2012. “I’ve had a few injuries over the years, and they’re all healed up so I just believed in myself and I’m super stoked. I kept my head down and whoever I drew it didn’t matter, I was just in a heat against myself”, said Zietz. Florence came back with a late charge that included a near-perfect 9.2-point ride with a reverse 360 air, only to see Zietz answer back with a 9.43. He now leads the 2012 Triple Crown of Surfing race. “Sunset’s a tricky one for me. I’ve never really done good there, but I’ve never done too well at Haleiwa either, so hopefully this could be my year. If I get into Pipe, I’ll be super ecstatic, I love surfing contests there.” John John Florence has put the world title pressure behind him and is looking forward to defend Triple Crown of Surfing title. “You know, the extra money is always good, you’re really stoked on that, but I think the prestige of actually winning the Triple Crown is really the main thing.” Up next is the Vans World Cup of Surfing, running from the 25th November to the 6th December. Reef Hawaiian Pro 2012 Final: 1. Sebastian Zietz (HAW) 17.76pts – $40,000 2. John John Florence (HAW) 14.70pts – $20,000 3. Fredrick Patacchia (HAW) 13.50pts – $12,000 4.

William Asher, Harley Clifford and Freddy Krueger have tasted gold at the 35th Waterski and Wakeboard World Cup, held at Palembang City, Indonesia.
The finals produced some of the most competitive performances ever seen in Slalom, Jump and Wakeboard. Seven out of 24 countries captured the coveted World

The Men’s Slalom finals were unique. Britain’s William Asher was third into the arena and his score of five buoys on 11.25m line took an early lead. The World Record Holder, Chris Parrish, was last to compete.
Although he scored a solid four buoys on the 11.25m line, that was not enough to prevent Asher from taking the 2012 Palembang World Cup Slalom Gold Medal.
This was his first World Cup title. Third place saw a draw between the two Italian Slalom specialists, Thomas Degasperi and Carlo Alais.
In Wakeboard Pro Men, Harley Clifford continued his extraordinary run of World Cup successes. What remained was a fascinating battle between the young sixteen year-old Tony Iacconi from Australia’s New South Wales, and the experienced past World Champion Andrew Adkison from Florida, USA.
On this occasion, it was the teenager Iacconi who came out on top with the Silver Medal, just ahead of Adkison.
In Waterski Jumping, the Men’s World Record Holder, Freddy Krueger, was last off the dock in the finals. All assumed that he would dominate as he has done so often.
It was Felipe Miranda who set the early pace with a distance of 59.7m. This was quickly beaten by Ryan Dodd, who had all the appearances of true winner with a score of 62.4m.
However, although he failed to beat Dodd with his first two attempts, in the closing seconds of the day, to add to the drama, Freddy Krueger did it once again with a distance of 63.6m to take the Gold Medal. Silver went to Dodd and Bronze to Miranda.
