The unique sport of bodyflying
If you’re interested in adrenaline-fueled sports, be sure to try bodyflying. This unique niche sport is gaining popularity, especially in Europe and the USA. Bodyflying is like skydiving, except that it usually takes place in the hall and therefore you don’t have to jump out of an airplane and trigger the parachute. If you’re looking for the thrill of skydiving, but with the certainty of complete safety, bodyflying is your first step into the world of indoor skydiving, which costs much less than skydiving. In fact, bodyflying has become so popular that there are competitions in places like Berlin and Munich that are about who can fly better! Bodyflying is also suitable for children, so you can share the experience as a family to make contacts, have fun, awaken memories and acquire great flying skills. Bodyflying takes place in a wind tunnel where you learn to control your body while you are trapped in the air flow. Once you’ve got the spin out, you can position your body in an arc and maintain that position while using your legs and arms to move forward and backward, forward and backward, and perform rotations.
What Bodylfying is all about
You need a trainer to practice bodyflying, and the speed of the airflow iids is often 160km/h for beginners and 260km/h for professionals. These high speeds provide an adrenaline rush. If you’re a beginner, the instructor will first ask you to fold your arm over your body before entering the wind tunnel and then lower your door, where the instructor will support you first. Next, you need to feel comfortable in the air flow by bulging your body to maintain stability. Then you will learn how to make a stable rotation and also move up and down, forward and backward by simply changing the position of your arms and legs.
Tips for beginners
– Stay calm
– Listen to your instructor and follow his instructions
– Wear comfortable shoes and clothes to make it easy for yourself
– Practice the curved posture for stability
– Don’t forget to breathe and have fun!
