Cable Wakeboarding Fun On The Horizon
As Wake Nation Cincinnati Opens Saturday, April 14
(Cincinnati, OH) – Wake Nation Cincinnati opens for its fourth season Saturday, April 14.
The popular watersports’ complex in Fairfield’s Joyce Park is Ohio’s only cable wakeboarding park where riders – both experienced and beginners — can wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, and wakeskate around a 10-acre lake without a boat. Riders are pulled around the oval lake at speeds of 18-20 miles per hour by a circulating, overhead cable system that runs 35 feet above the water.
In addition to the 10-acre main lake, Wake Nation Cincinnati has a second body of water called the Practice Pond, which is a smaller lake featuring an “easy start” ride system. The Practice Pond is designed to give children ages five and up and beginners of all ages a place to learn to ride a wakeboard at a slower speed than on the main lake. When the Practice Pond opened in 2010, it was the first of its kind in the USA.
Wake Nation Cincinnati was designed from the ground up to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced boarders. Beginners like that wakeboarding at Wake Nation is fun, easy to learn, and allows everyone to progress at their own pace. Advanced riders can amp up the adrenaline by doing air tricks off floating jumps and obstacles. Riders can bring their own gear, or rent equipment — including boards and wet suits — at the park.
At the state-of-the-art pro shop, visitors can find the very latest in wakeboarding gear and apparel from industry leaders such as Liquid Force, Remix and Billabong.
Wake Nation Cincinnati opened to rave reviews in the spring of 2009 and at that time was only the 7th cable wakeboarding park in the nation. The next closest cable wake park is more than 800 miles away in Kansas City.
