Kuidas ehitada lohesurfi rämpi

Rämbid on ühed ägedamad veepargi detailid ja on tungivalt soovitav, et sa ehitad ühe valmis ja paned selle kohe oma kodukohas vette.

This week's kitesurfing tips cover how to build a kiteboarding kicker. At 193 cm high, the 2010 SPI Kite Round Up kicker is built to be big, but the unique no-sidewall design allows the overall height and angle of takeoff to be easily reduced by up to eight inches, which substantially mellows out the transition and overall size of the hit. Set to its maximum height, hitting this kicker with kite low, the rider can expect to be kicked about 457.2-609.6 cm up and travel 1524-2133.6 cm through the air with a medium-hard landing on your kiteboard.

Asjad mida sul läheb vaja:

200' of 2x4
four 16' and 12 12'
Four sheets plywood
Four sheets fiberglass reinforced bath-board
Three gallons FRP Liquid Nails
Lots of 3" screws
A bunch of 1 5/S" screws
Three big barrels


This kicker is built entirely on a 2x4 frame, floating on three 60-gallon blue barrels, with a 1/4 inch plywood deck and a fiberglass reinforced bath-board IFRS) surface.


The construction of this kicker started with the base, which is a 16' x 6' box. There are two diagonal braces on each side tying in the vertical supports along the sides, Six-foot 2x4's run across the ramp between the uprights. The plywood deck is topped with bath-board, which is glued on with construction glue. The barrels keeping the SPI Kite Round-Up kicker afloat are boxed in by 2x4s running between the uprights. There is one barrel on each back corner, and one barrel turned sideways and centered under the ramp, approximately six feet from the front. When resting on land, the front of the kicker is about two and a half feet off the ground, in the water the forward weight sinks the beginning of the ramp to about one inch underwater.

When placing barrels and estimating how much the front of the ramp will sink, remember it is much easier to sink the front barrel with weights or water inside than it is to sink the back of the kicker or try to raise the front. Some of the advantages of building a kicker without using plywood sidewalls are reduced weight, reduced wind forces on the ramp, and the unique ability to easily adjust the overall height and transition angle.

All you need to do to lower the height and reduce the take-off angle is back the screws out of the last two uprights, drop them down to the desired height, and re-attach. (But that won't be happening to this kicker anytime soon) Now go build one and charge it! Send us your kitesurfing photos and we will post them!
