It’s funny – I don’t spend a lot of time on Romanian waterbeds and many other watersports enthusiasts travel great distances to do that. Here follow some stories on the features of the most popular whitewater rivers in the country. Just to get your appetites whetted…
When a surfer paddles for a wave and the wave pitches up, there is a split second decision that has to be made whether to commit to the wave or not. That split second decision is called ‘taking the drop,’ as in dropping into the wave.
Quite often, people ask me ‘Why do you go south of the Balkans for your watersports?’. Because I love the waters and their color there. In my head, it is far better to flip and be able to see everything that lies beneath you – or a large part of it – than do that in murky waters.
Kitesurfing is a surface watersport in which the rider makes use of a large steerable kite and a board to slide on the water. The kite is connected to a harness through lines and a bar, and exploits the power of the wind. Therefore, kitesurfing can be practiced anywhere the wind speed allows, from lakes to oceans.
Kitesurfing has a smooth learning curve, and is more about coordination and less about fitness levels. Contrary to popular beliefs, it does not require strength. The harness takes up most of the force, leaving the rider’s hands free to steer the kite quite effortlessly. The safety systems stop the kite as soon as the rider’s hands leave the power bar. Investing in kitesurfing lessons is imperative if you wish to learn the techniques correctly and stay safe!
Kitesurfing offers endless opportunities to progress, as there is great freedom to perform tricks in various conditions, even in the absence of waves. Popular kitesurfing destinations include Spain, Vietnam, Morocco, Philippines, Domincan Republic, Brazil, Peru, which offer something for all levels.
Wind (strength) should be 10 knots minimum. Wind speed limit should be 30 knots maximum.
