Ballet-Kite Surfing

时间:2005-06-08 16:00来源:互联网 提供网友:幽幽草   字体: [ ]

There is just one road along the Atlantic coast of Spain to the southern most tip of Europe. It follows the coast of De La Luis, the coast of the light, leading you to Tariffa, possibly the windiest beach in the world. Tariffa feels remote. It’s Europe’s closest point to Africa, you can see the coast of Morocco. The beach is unspoiled, with no resorts. Its wind and the water hold the secret of the newest 1)craze in water sports: kite surfing.   

Nacho is an instructor1 at Club Luscrow, one of the two surf schools on Tariffa’s main water sport beach, Puenta Paloma. Every morning, before the wind gets to high and when the beach is still empty, the schools hold intensive classes for beginners. If your Spanish isn’t quite up to picking up the technique of wind surfing, there are classes in English and every other European language.    

The secret of success on the board is balance and confidence. For beginners, it’s never all plain sailing. By the afternoon, the winds are reaching up to sixty miles an hour, the sun 2)bathers are out in force and the 3)novice2 surfers make way for the experts.   

This is the wind surfing capital of Europe, but it’s not the wind surfing that is now attracting the crowds to the beach; it’s kite surfing. Over the last two years, the popularity3 of this new sport has taken off. Kiting is an 4)evolution of snow boarding and surfing. People who discover the secret of Tarriffa travel from all corners of the world to experience the 5)adrenalin and style of this sport. It was developed fifteen years ago by Cory Rossler, an American from Oregon. He started by putting a kite with water-skiis. Today the advantages of a single board are the incredible4 6)acrobatics5 that surfers can create reaching heights of up to forty feet. It doesn’t need the wave, the lightweight kite is pulled on a 7)pulley system to catch the wind in whatever direction it is moving. Tariffa has two wind directions which can create the perfect conditions.   

Kite surfing has been called “aerial ballet”, fast overtaking other forms of surfing, because there’s no waiting for waves or for the right conditions. The wind may be magnificent for water sports, but it holds an ancient secret: local myths6 has it that it causes madness. Even if the 8)unrelenting wind is the secret cause of madness, it’s not stopping Tariffa beach growing in popularity. It has a laid-back, truly European atmosphere retaining unspoilt and simple charm7.CE

纳曹是卢思克罗俱乐部的教练,这家俱乐部在塔里法主要进行水上运动,是海滩上的两所滑浪学校之一。每个早上,趁风速尚未很高以前,海滩仍旧空荡荡的时候,学校就对初学者进行密集训练。如果你的西班牙语还不太好,不能听懂风帆滑浪讲解的技巧,那里也开有用英文或其他欧洲语言讲解的课程。    成功操控滑板的秘诀在于平衡力和自信心。对初学者来说,绝对不会一帆风顺。到了下午,风速达每小时六十英里,晒日光浴的人大举出动,新手只好让位给专业人士了。
