It looks like cable wakeboarding will finally make its way to Southern California. On October 28, the Santee City Council approved the plan to build a cable wakeboarding park at the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, which is located just outside San Diego, California.
The long-debated plan calls for a cable park and restaurant to be built on the preserve’s southernmost lake. The Santee Lakes cable park will feature a six-tower cable system as well as a restaurant, snack bar and pro shop.
The Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve is managed by the Padre Dam Municipal Water District and provides camping, fishing and other recreation pursuits to Southern California residents.
No word yet on when the plan will be put into action.

The Rio Bravo Wake Camp in Reynosa, Mexico, and Monster Energy will host a pro wakeboarding event on Nov. 7-8 that will feature 20 of the world’s best wakeboarders, including Rusty Malinoski, Aaron Rathy, Danny Harf and Phillip Soven.
The contest portion of the Rio Bravo Pro will include two kickers, three rails and a massive wall ride and will be pulled by a Supra wakeboard boat. Longtime Pro Wakeboard Tour announcer Danno Amin will man the mic, and judges from the Texas Ski Ranch will score the contest. The event will also feature a party sponsored by Monster Energy and Skullcandy. Liquid Force, Supra Boats and Quiksilver are also sponsoring the event.
The Rio Bravo Wake Camp is located on the Rio Bravo River just across the U.S.-Mexico border.
