Speed Testing of Windstreams
Speed testing of wind streams is a necessity before you start any type of windsurfing. Speed testing will give you the gauge that you need to determine if the speed of the water is appropriate for your current situation. If you are planning on entering into a windsurfing competition then it would be recommended that you take the time to get your speed tested. When you do speed tests then it will give you a much better understanding of what speeds are right for your own current situation. When speed testing it will be important to note that the greater the speed that you test the less likely it is that you will be able to keep up with it and finish. However, if you speed test and are able to do so then you will be able to make good judgments as to where you should go.
Speed testing will also help you determine which currents are appropriate for your current conditions. The current you are going to need to test will be different for each situation so you will need to make sure that you read the directions that come with your device. You will also want to know the maximum current level that you can safely enter into so that you don’t exceed the speed that you need to stay within a certain time. Also, remember that the higher the current level the longer you will have to wait before you can begin surfing. The higher the current level the slower you will be able to keep up with it. This will be the case if you choose to enter into a competition and if you go against a faster opponent.
Speed testing will also help you determine whether or not there are any currents that may be a problem for you. This will include knowing which currents you will need to stay away from. Knowing which currents you need to stay away from will help to improve your overall performance during competitions. Once you have finished the speed tests, you will be ready to enter into a windsurfing competition so make sure that you understand all of the rules and regulations before you do.
