San Diego Springboard Diving Lessons: Getting to Know Your Diving Board

 

Just ask a baseball player how much his bat weighs, what it is made out of, and where the sweet spot is, and he will give you enough information to write a book. It is every athlete’s responsibility to know the ends and outs of every piece of equipment they use in their sport. Springboard diving is no different; the diving board alone is a complex piece of equipment that allows divers to get the height and hang time they need. By understanding the springboard, divers can better appreciate the foundation of their sport. And while students learn every exciting accouterment in their springboard diving lessons, a good springboard diving coach will help them understand how the diving board works with every bodily movement performed by a diver.

What is a Diving Board Made Out Of?

When you were a child and you looked out the window of an airplane, did you ever imagine walking across the wing like the superheroes do in the movies? If you are a springboard diver you can do the next closest thing, as today’s springboards are constructed from a single piece of aircraft-graded aluminum. When you make it to the big stage in competitive diving you will be standing on the MaxiFlex Model B—the board used at the professional and semi-professional levels. It is made form the above mentioned materials and is heat treated for a maximum strength of 50,000 psi. The bumpy surface on the board is there to prevent divers from slipping and is made using an epoxy resin that is finished off with a laminate piece of flint silica and alumia sandwiched in between the top coats of resin—a product that is thermal-cured to match the aqua coloring of swimming pool water. The next time you take your mark on the board in your springboard diving lessons, remember that you are standing on something that is made from the same material used to build those aircraft that shot down the bad guys in WWII!

What’s the Deal with the Springs?

They may not cover physics in your San Diego springboard diving lessons, but diving board springs compose a big part of Hook’s Law. This is not to say the origin of this name traces back to Captain Hook making frightened victims walk the plank on his “diving board of death”. Rather, Hooke’s Law exists as a first ordeal linear approximation to the response springs and other such items experience when being subjugated to an applied force. Hooke’s Law says the springs will fail once the force exceeds the limit. Spring constants are generally adjusted via a fulcrum located approximately mid way along the board. When a diver mounts the board during his springboard diving lessons the combination of the constant stiffness of the board and the diver’s constant mass provides an outcome boasting a resonance frequency that is adjustable via the fulcrum position set by the spring constant. This may sound like a mouthful, but it is just science!

Diving Lessons Should Include an Education

When you sign up for springboard diving lessons with professional instructors like Marnie Young, you will be receiving the best training in all of San Diego County, as well as an education surrounding the sport that touches everything from diving boards to entries, and from team work to overcoming psychological challenges. Just be sure to challenge your self to be an expert in all that surrounds your sport.
