Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Watersports
What Is A Cable Park?
Fun family destination where everyone can learn to waterski, wakeboard and kneeboard
Similar to a T-bar at a ski hill, the electrically powered towing system runs in a continuous circuit, towing riders across a body of water and replacing the need for a boat.
The easiest and most affordable way to learn a new watersport, or for the experienced participant to progress their skills.
Powered by a small electric motor, the system is virtually silent,
producing roughly 55dB
Blending into normal - outdoor ambient noise levels.
At its roots the facility will be focused on building community within the sport by encouraging new participants to get invovled and by providing a facility that encourages people to get outside, try something new, and to have fun!
Wakeboard and Waterski Cable Parks are an investment in environmentally- friendly and affordable, sustainable family recreation which provide engagement with the local community and beyond, supporting all-ages healthy lifestyles.
Considering its location in the Town of the Blue Mountains we anticipate that the facility will complement and enhance local summer sports tourism as part of a growing and diversified four season economy, adding to the unique cultural and natural qualities of the community.
"Cable wakeboarding is the summer version of a ski hill, except it's hot and sunny, I think it will be awesome for the community!"

Frequently asked questions
Are cable parks loud?
No. The cable systems operate using small electric motors. On each of the two "straight line" cables there is a 10kw electric motor (similar to a washing machine), and the "full size cable" (donut pond) uses a 30kw electric motor. The systems operate at 55dB at the base of each motor tower, and are virtually silent once you are 15-20ft away as the sound dicipates.
Is it difficult to learn?
Are there other parks like this?
There are over 300 Full Size Cable Parks in the world! Over 80 in Germany alone.
