What exactly is / Was ist „Splashdiving“?

SPLASHDIVING is All About Making a Splash

A cannonball splash is the easiest (and most fun) way to dive, but did you know it’s a legitimate sport as well? It’s officially called ‘splashdiving’, but fans lovingly refer to it as ‘arse bombing’!

While regular divers are judged on how smoothly they land in the water, in splashdiving it’s the exact opposite that counts – points are awarded for the size of the splash created on impact. That sounds painful, but leading competitors say it doesn’t really hurt as much as you’d think. “The pain is minimal,” according to the reigning arse-bombing world champion Rainhard Riede from Bavaria.  And in the words of arse-bomber Lukas Eglseder, “You get used to it.”

Splashdiving has its own set of rules, and believe it or not, competitors can choose from 13 different styles of diving. The classic ‘arse bomb’ involves landing bum first with the knees tucked into the stomach. Other techniques include ‘the cat’, ‘the chair’, and ‘the plank’. Contestants are required to announce their moves in advance, and are given four chances to make a big impression.

The first dive is all about the splash, as divers aren’t allowed to perform acrobatic moves. The remaining dives give them a chance to show off with somersaults, twists, and various positions. They’re judged on takeoff, execution, and landing. Freestyle elements such as handstands, palm flips, or grabs are given a different score – from one to ten – by each judge. The highest overall scorer wins.

Was genau ist SPLASHDIVING™?

(engl. SPLASH = Spritzer, DIVING = Springen) ist die neue Breitensportart im FREESTYLE Charakter, die in Deutschland gegründet wurde.

Sie hat – im Gegensatz zum Kunst- und Turmspringen – das Ziel, beim Eintauchen möglichst viel Wasser möglichst geräuschvoll zu verdrängen.

Anfangs ging man unter dem Namen „Arschbombe“ in die Öffentlichkeit, jedoch gibt es neben der Arschbombe weitere Landepositionen und ein ganzes Wettkampf- und Entertainment- Gewerk, das weltweit unter dem Namen Splashdiving besser verstanden wurde.

Die erste Arschbomben WM gab es 2004. Zwei Jahre danach wurde die erste Splashdiving-Weltmeisterschaft präsentiert.

HOPE’s first days at school

It’s so wonderful to see those happy pics of Hope’s first day at Skylark school!
She is such an inspiring little girl!
And OMG, how much she has grown since July 2015…
Seeing these pics of Hope and all the others brings back so many memories!
Thanks Anita Mahato, for giving us the permission to share.

WOW, we just received a few more updates from Anita,
so here are a few more facts for us:

„Hope is doing just just fine. She remembers almost everything she did in the USA.
She first started going to school last year, but only to play and get used to being there.
But over the past few weeks she started to stay for longer periods of time.
From 09:00 – 12:00 or 09:00 – 11:30,
depending on when she started getting really tired.
Her first official and long day at school was June 22nd.
On that day she stayed from 09:00 – 02:00 for the first time.

She did take an exam today (July 7th),
and although she still has to start learning Nepali she did really well!“

Now, what can we say?  Hope, a clever little girl, indeed! 😀

#Splashdiving and more…

A lot has happened over the last few days, so here we go:

The organizers of the THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – SPLASHDIVING 2016 (#TWCSD2016) are creating really cool setcards for every single athlete. These are currently being published on their website and on Facebook. They also announced that we are participating to raise money for a good cause and that more info will be published over the next few weeks.

The event is sponsored by a popular local radio station, there will be live radio-broadcasting. We will have the chance to promote „Sanctuary for Kids“.

Needless to say we are terribly proud and excited!!!

Check out their website and scroll down to find „your“ #S4K team: Splashdiving.com / Team and Athletes

We were also sent our setcards, so I created a collage. Please meet your team:

Carmen (Germany)

WOW: „Sanctuary for Kids“ updated our info on their Community Page, so here we go: Sanctuary for Kids / SplashdivingForS4K

Update on Elaine’s Bottles

So here comes an update on Elaine’s beautiful bottles, filled with sand from her local beach in New Jersey.

image
Important: All bottles carry our own logo ❤️
When Elaine gave them to us, our first idea was to offer them against a direct donation into our collecting-tin at our next fundraiser #SplashdivingForS4K in late July.
Little did we know that many of you would inquire about how to get hold of one…
So, we came up with the following plan:
In addition to our original plan, we will also mail bottles.
Mailing for the US and Canada will happen via Elaine once a month, mailing for Europe and other countries will happen once a week from Stuttgart.
We will ask for a minimum-donation of CAD 7,50 per bottle for #S4K via the „Sanctuary for Kids“ website.
PLEASE do contact us BEFORE making your donation…
Shipping will be covered by us.
Lots of Love, Bea and Carmen
And once again: Thank You coach, for this wonderful idea ❤️

PS: Elaine is already working on new bottles, so please keep your orders coming in 🙂
