The Cable Park will offer the only recreational sport of its kind in Southern California for all ages. It will be one of the leading attractions in San Diego for watersports enthusiasts of all ages. Through the use of the Cable system we can create a learning environment that will make wakeboarding easy and fun with almost zero carbon footprint.
In addition, this proposition will create a community and increase revenue in its area. We plan to offer various camps for children and season passes to regular riders. A restaurant and pro shop will also be available for the riders to utilize. To encourage the entire family out to The Cable Park there will also be volleyball courts, hammocks, bocce ball, horseshoe pits and many more activities planned.
Wakeboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in its industry. This can be seen from an increase in sales of wakeboards, boats and cable park systems in the past few years. Traditionally in order to wakeboard, a boat is needed along with lots of polluting fuel. However, seen in various markets around the world, wakeboard cable parks are the driving force behind the sport. They offer an inexpensive, eco-friendly solution for anyone.
A cable park typically consists of 4-6 towers that tow the rider around in a circular pattern. A usual run consists of 4 laps. If the rider falls, they simply take off their wakeboard and swim to the beach. Because of the accessible design of our location, it makes this process very easy for the rider to learn.
One of our main intentions is to offer various camps along the year. Because San Diego has an “endless summer” we are able to offer these camps over school holiday breaks, and college courses during the semester. People travel great distances to experience the thrill and progression this sport offers. The closest cable park to San Diego is in Sacramento – almost an eight hour drive!
