The Art Of The Slalom Start

Turkish speed and slalom sailor Lena Erdil has been in touch with an interesting video on slalom starts as a result of her training in Tenerife. It seems one second lasts a lot longer than you might imagine, check this out.

“What a difference a second makes…
Here is a video with some slalom starts from my winter training in Tenerife most of them crossing the line at 0 but also a few overearlies, some I find actually debatable, but it’s all just training anyway and I thought it would be cool for you guys out there to have a look and also be the judge!! I find it super interesting to see just how much is going on in the last few seconds before a start and just how long 1 Second can actually be in a moment like this and what difference it can make! In slalom racing a perfect start gives you a big advantage, but if you go over early you are disqualified which can sometimes ruin the whole event for you, so pushing is important but also dangerous! Fingers crossed I will get many 0.000 starts in the upcoming racing season and I hope you will enjoy this little video. Let me know what you think! Thanks a lot for the great footage and general work @Gille and the TWS team in Tenerife.

Thanks a lot for the great footage and general work @Gille and the TWS team in Tenerife!! Tenerife’deki antrenmanlarımından start ile ilgili kısa bir Video hazırladım. Yarışlarda iyi bir start almak aşırı önemli ve aynı zamanda’da en zor şeylerden biri. Start alırkenki amacımız ulaşabildiğimiz en yüksek hız ile tam 0’da start hatını geçmek. Bunu iyi başaran sporcular yarışa avantajlı başlamış oliyor ama erken çıkış yapan sporcu dısqualifiye oliyor. Video’da son bir kaç hafta içinde yapdiğimiz farklı hava şartlardaki startları gözetliyebilirsiniz ve windsurf yarışlarında bir saniye nekadar çok şey fark ettirebiliceğini daha iyi anlıyacaksınız…
