Cable parks are becoming the most effective way to introduce new people into the sport of wakeboarding. Before cable parks, riding a wakeboard required tremendous investment in a boat and expensive gas prices. Cable systems offer an affordable way for beginners, intermediate and high ability riders to get out on the water. In addition to the financial benefits of a cable system, the systems are very environmentally friendly. With no fossil fuels being burned for the operation of the cable system, it is non polluting and quiet.
