SuperFly Open 2010

The 3rd Annual SuperFly Open sponsored by Best Kiteboarding will be held March 11 – 14, 2010 at Powder Mountain Resort. Powder Mountain is fast becoming the primo destination for snowkite enthusiasts. Three years ago, it was the first mountain resort in the US to offer identify an exclusive snowkiting area and to offer a snowkite only pass. This past year, Best Kiteboarding established the Best Snowkite Center at Powder Mountain and offers lessons and demos at the resort.

Last year’s event attracted over 50 of the best snowkiters in the world with competitors travelling from as far away as Norway. After the success of the 2008 and 2009 Superfly Open, it is expected that this year’s competition will grow substantially. Competitions during the festival include freestyle, big mountain race, kitecross and big air. For those who want to try their hand at the colorful adventure introductory kite clinics will be offered each day.

All the action takes place just south of the top of the Sunrise Poma lift, in an area known as “The Towers” in the Hidden Lake area of Powder Mountain, which sits at an elevation of about 9,000 ft. The viewing area is wide and open, so folks can cruise on over and take a break from skiing or riding to watch all the action, grab a bratwurst and enjoy the incredible backdrop of the entire Wasatch Range and Great Salt Lake. For non-skiers there will be a groomed trail from the Hidden Lake Lodge parking lot.

If you’ve ever watched the colorful beauty of hot air balloons launching, imagine the basket on a pair of skis or snowboard ripping across the horizon, and you’ll have some inkling of the intrigue of this sport. It’s colorful, it’s dynamic, and it’s COOL! Charge up your cameras and video recorders and head on up to Powder Mountain!

Powder Mountain Resort is located in Eden, Utah 19 miles northeast of Ogden.

How to Bet on Traditional Sports and Xtreme Sports

How to Bet on Xtreme Sports

You can bet on sports in a variety of ways and be in action every day of the year.  While some may be more popular than others, each form of sports betting has its own unique appeal and characteristics that make it both enjoyable and potentially profitable.  Sports betting includes sides, totals, parlays, teasers, money lines, halftimes and additional choices like propositions, contests etc.  Let’s look at the most popular ways to bet on traditional sports and xtreme sports.

Here are some of the bet types you can find at all Top Sportsbooks.

Side Betting

This is the most popular form of sports betting in which gamblers simply pick one side over another in a matchup. There are two ways to bet sportsbook sides, either with pointspreads or with the money line.  The pointspread is where gamblers can either lay points with the favorite or take points with the underdog.  For example, you might have the New England Patriots laying 4 points to the Miami Dolphins.  You could either lay the four points with New England or take the 4 points with Miami.

Money Line

Instead of laying or taking points, gamblers will lay odds with the favorite or take odds with the dog.  For example, in a Surfing matchup, Kelly Slater might be -200 on the money line vs. Gabriel Medina.  If you chose the Kelly Slater you would risk $200 to win $100 on him or the 2-1 equivalent while you would get back $170 for every $100 wagered on Gabriel Medina or the 1.7-1 equivalent.

Totals

This form of sports betting, also known as over/unders is when gamblers will bet on whether the combined score between two sides will go over or under a set number at the online sportsbook.  For example, you might have the total on a UFC fight lasting 4.5 round,  so you could take under or over that total amount with your wager.

Parlays

In this sports bet, gamblers will group together several different bets into one single bet in which all of the bets must win for the parlay to win. The big draw for betting parlays is the increased payoff odds at the online sportsbook.  For example, if you took the Patriots -4, the Cowboys -7 and the Steelers -3 and each team won and covered the spread, your parlay would pay out at odds of 6-1.

Teasers

These are just like a parlay except that the sportsbook odds are enhanced by anywhere from six points (on a traditional “Las Vegas Style” teaser) to twelve points in football on what is known as a special sportsbook teaser.   For example, you might take the Patriots at +2, the Cowboys at -1 and the Steelers at +3 on a three-team, six-point teaser. There are also teasers available in basketball although they don’t get nearly the attention that football teasers get.

Halves

In this form of sports betting, gamblers have the options of betting either on just the first half of a game or the second half of a game, (or both). There are normally first half and second half lines on football and basketball games in both the NFL and in colleges.

Futures

The futures bet is where you take a team to win an entire events such as the Xgames, Esports, or Auto Racing.  You can get odds ranging from 2-1 all the way up to 500-1 or more by backing certain teams or individuals with your wager.  This wager keeps you in action for the entire season or single event for the cost of a single bet.

Propositions and Contests

Props are offered oftentimes on marquee games throughout the year and vary in the choices from player proposition to team props.  For example, you might have a prop on the amount of yards Tom Brady will throw for in a Monday Night Football game.  Contests are also offered throughout the year, especially during football season.
