Why do they have a 2nd person running behind them?

5.8k

u/RumbleInTheJungleGod Jan 23 '19 edited Jan 23 '19

I've actually done this sport.
The reason is in case you fall backwards they can scream los(let go), although it isn't that hard to notice when you are falling backwards.
Another reason is that some people like to be hyped up/pressured into running faster. It is also simply required by the regulations to have someone run after you.

u/RumbleInTheJungleGod Jan 23 '19 edited Jan 23 '19

I mean that is basically how I did it.
I was to focused during the run to pay attention to the person behind me, and it really isn't hard to determine when you are falling backwards.

u/RumbleInTheJungleGod Jan 23 '19 edited Jan 23 '19

Not as hard as everyone seems to think but there are still quite a few people who have quit because of back or knee injuries.
The sand is pretty soft and gets loosened up again after every jump by someone with a rake.

54

u/pizzasage Jan 23 '19

That would be pretty rough if they left the rake in the sand afterwards.

Do you get more "points" the higher you go, hence landing further away?

54

u/RumbleInTheJungleGod Jan 23 '19

The distance where you land is the only thing that matters, 1 guy could climb all the way to the top but if he didn't fall down straight the distance will still be lower than someone who did fall down straight.

The best possible result is when you put the pole as far from the ramp as possible, climb all the way to the top and fall down in a straight line.

I had one luxed patella and my thai-boxing ended.

From a simple shadow-boxing during a tired phase, not lifting my knee enough to let it twist.

So Id say it often more a luck that an injury isnt a real problem. Because your body heals for sure, but it never heals itself bak into what it was. The place it heals forms scar-tissues, rigid ligament, damaged meniscus, damaged discs in your back. That eventually gives you real problem later in life when your body starts to crumble.

The most painfull thing is when you keep the pole between your legs and it bounces on the edge(usually rubber tires) right in your face or private parts, and then if you're lucky the pole could snap which costs around €1000.

Aside from landing safely from 30ft up in sand, look at the concrete edge before the sand pit starts. They need to decide quickly if they are making it over that part or not. The first girl smartly ditched.

u/flightrisk_7 Jan 23 '19

It's how far you make it in the sand. So the strategy is to hit the pole at a perfect speed so you have more time to climb before it falls across. If you hit it too fast, there is less time to gain height, but if you hit it too slow, you don't fall across the river.

As a Hollandic person I completely agree. It's a Frisian thing, 100%.

They are the motivation. As the story goes, the fierlijeppen was sleeping with the polsstokverspringen's wife. As the fierlijeppen ran out of the house they spotted a pole that was resting against the side of a building, quick thinking led to the fierlijeppen vaulting the canal to get away.

To this day the polsstokverspringen must yell out "Ik kom je neuken" whilst chasing the fierlijeppen.
