Water Sports

Getting out of the water and onto a board or skis is just the beginning, but once mastered, you'll want to do it again and again, whether behind a motorboat or at one of the many water sports facilities. When it comes to water-skiing or wakeboarding, we offer all the right equipment, including kneeboards, helmets, gloves, wakeboard lines, water-ski jackets and wetsuits - find out what our wakeboard shop has to offer.
 
Water-skiing behind a motorboat starts from either deep water or from a jetty. The athlete bends into a crouch, arms stretched out straight, while leaning back. The tips of the skis should be pointed up and slightly protruding out of the water. With the tow rope between the skis, the driver then accelerates to pull the athlete up from the water. When this happens, it is important to stay in the squat position and wait until the boat has reached enough speed, so that there is sufficient force between the boat and the water skiier. Always make sure a third person is at the rear of the boat to observe for safety reasons.
The inventor of water skiing is considered to be American Ralph Samuelson. Samuelson began his first attempts at water skiing in 1922 in Lake City, Minnesota. He fashioned his first water skis out of wood and used them on the lake. In 1925 he succeeded in doing the first jump across a ramp on the lake.

Classic water skiing consists of slalom, jumping, trick skiing, figure skiing and various combinations of these.

Wakeboarding: Very similar to snowboarding. The board is thick and riders place their feet into shoe-like bindings mounted to it. For tricks, the tension of the tow rope is used for "inverts", jumps, or manuvering on or around obstacles.

Wakeskating: Similar to wakeboarding, however, the athlete is not bound to the board but stands barefoot or with shoes on special sandpaper (grip tape).


Kneeboarding: The athlete kneels on the board and is pulled behind the boat while sitting on his heels.

SUP
Stand Up Paddling (SUP) - the new sport for all ages! Our inflatable SUPs can be taken with you wherever you go. Whether on board, for exploring secluded coves, in your luggage on a family holiday or simply in the back of the car for a short detour via the lake on the way home. Enjoy the nature, silence on the water and the movement. Discover our stand up paddle boards, matching accessories and our range of replacement parts. On your paddle, get set, go!
When stand up paddling, also known as SUP, the athlete stands upright on the board and moves forward by paddling from side to side. Originally, longboards from surfing were used. The paddle, usually made of an aluminium pole with a plastic blade, should always be slightly longer than the athlete himself, so that paddling is comfortable, without too much effort. With a stand up paddle board it is quite possible to cover long distances or simply go exploring on lakes or the coast.
