>the self-defence instructor is a fat fuck in camouflage pants
Why is it almost always like that? And why do self-defence LARPers always prate, when it comes to fighting? They always turn fighting into some philosophical science shit, and are avidly explaining their "philosphy", and what they would to in this or that situation. Shut the fuck up! Do you even have time to practise, when you are doing nothing but yapping about?

Some years ago I was skiing on Palmer Glacier (Mount Hood, OR) during summer. I hiked way past the top of the lift, there were crevasses and sulphur vents, it was really cool, but once I got to the crevasses and sulphur vents and an exposed stretch of a stream that was flowing under the glacier, I figured it might be unsafe to go higher if there are hidden crevasses or anything that would give way under me, so I turned around there and skied down.
It was one of the coolest things I have ever done and I would like to do that kind of stuff more if I get back out to the Northwest (Hood, Rainier, etc).
How dangerous is this? Are there likely snow bridges/hidden crevasses on these mountains during summer or has all that melted away by mid-late summer? Am I dumb if I go and do it again? Are there any measures I can take to mitigate risk?

Anyone here sail? Just got my first taste of it this weekend and signed up for the local sailing club. Immediately started looking at sailing yachts afterwards. Just some questions to kick things off:
>What do you sail?
>Freshwater or saltwater?
>Have you ever crewed on a racing boat?
>What do you like or not like about it?
>Do you do it for leisure, fishing, racing?
>What is your local sailing community like?
I also don't know where this thread belongs, but I figure this would be the best spot to start.

Didn't realise this thread was mixing dinghy and yacht sailing so to be clear I'm talking about dinghies.
>>
>>48755
>>49105
The reply is not wrong, but it doesn’t capture the essence of the problem with heel. Heel causes the boat to luff up, because the centerboard or keel drag induces rotation of the boat. You can feel the luffing tendency because the rudder becomes stiffer and you actually have to pull on it to compensate the luffing tendency. Pulling on the rudder increases drag, and you lose speed.
A second reason is that the more you heel, the less of the cross section of the centreboard is used to contrast drifting downwind, so you have more drift.
Third reason is the more you heel, the less sail surface you expose to the wind, so you lose power.
In short THE HARDER YOU HIKE, THE FASTER YOU GO

Regarding dinghies, I personally sail an old 470 on the Mediterranean, at an amateur level without participating to regattas, and Laser, catamarans, and windsurf on inner waters.
I also sail a lot on a fixed keel 25 foot club boat, on which I race with a team on the lake. This year I’ve started skipping the boat myself, and I also organize outings for the new members of the club who want to start sailing.
This summer hopefully I’ll rent a boat from an acquaintance and sail for a couple of weeks in the open sea by myself for the first time

/sp/ is too fast for /marble/ during non-Marble League periods, so this could be the base for this extreme sporting event during most of the year

>News
Marbula One Season 2 returns from its break starting with race 7
Oceanics managed to win the 2021 Winter Marble League, redeeming themselves after their disastrous 2019 Marble League outing

>What is Marble League?
The Marble League is a tournament that features the most decorated and dedicated marble sports athletes. Every year, teams of five marbles compete in Qualifiers and the top 12 teams, along with 4 automatically qualified teams, advance to the main tournament. After an exquisite opening ceremony, the 16 teams perform in a series of events that are inspired by real-world Olympic events, earning medals and scoring points towards an overall total. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament is the team that wins the Marble League, standing at the top of the podium during the closing ceremony and having the honor of extinguishing the torch at the end of each year.

Not exactly what you want, but I have trouble with side kicks where I'll hit with my toes too much instead of my heel, and basically whip my foot back too hard on impact, making the tendons in the front of my ankle hurt. I practice form of course, but sometimes I put too much power into it, place my foot wrong and I get hurt. I took my boxing handwraps and wrapped my ankles fully and have not had this problem since. It's just a kind of mass of linen on my ankle that prevents my foot from turning upward. Really helps, as simple as it is.

I remember Bath university did some rugby risk analysis back in the day with video software that was pretty accurate at predicting injury risk. I would say learn anything that teaches you to go against your instinct and become bendy, twist etc... e.g. dancing, skating and learning to fall like a ragdoll. Most injuries I have ever seen happening were due to actor and receiver being stupid.... one step back and a kick in your quad turning or glutes is better anyday than a sokutu geri or whatever the shit is called

Why do skateboarders and bicyclists hate the electric versions so much? My electric skateboard goes 25 miles, my ebike goes 50mi, including thousands of feet of elevation gains. You can still kick and pedal for exercise, you just get a way better trip. But man do I get a lot of haters talking shit when I pass.

Also a weeb, I do Muay Thai. Planning on doing BJJ/Judo eventually. Also planning on Wrestling. The ONLY Weeb-friendly arts that aren't shit are Kyokushin (some), Muay Thai (oOoO Asian Shit), maybe Escrima (OoOo I get to knife someone or bludgeon someone with a stick), K-1 Kickboxing (though this assumes you go the Karate-esque route), BJJ/Judo. That's it, the whole "Spirituality" anime-esque shit that LARPERS pull is a load of crap. Just focus on your own journey/ beating the shit out of someone.

/DGG/ Disc Golf General
>What is disc golf?
Its golf but with frisbees or discs. Generally played at parks that have free courses.
>What do I need to get started?
A disc and some shoes to walk around comfortably. (You should probably also bring some water anon and maybe download UDisc for a scorecard, or print / make your own)
>I'm new what disc should I buy?
Pretty much any decent frisbee or disc will get you out and playing. Don't buy a starter set immediately, instead buy an innova skeeter as its a pretty easy to throw disc for a beginner and then buy more discs from there.
>Are there courses around me?
Almost certainly, check https://www.dgcoursereview.com/ for a pretty comprehensive list of courses and recommendations as to what ones near you are good.
>I bought a starter set and cant throw these things straight or far at all!
Go onto youtube and lookup guides idiot. Also learn to throw your putter first. It's most likely the easiest disc to throw in your bag and just because it doesnt fly as fast as a fairway or driver disc, It'll probably fly farther as It WILL fly straighter.

Most people you meet out on a disc golf course are gonna be pretty chill guys who'll either help you out if u get a disc stuck in a tree, or even give u a quick tip if you're new.

Feel free to post photos from your local courses or discs.
