Super exciting news, after sooooo many years, Kuwait Touristic Enterprises have built a cable park at Green island.
What is a cable park?
Simply put, a Cable Wake Park, or just Wake Park for short, is a Ski Resort for water sports.
In place of a hill as the cause for movement, a wake park uses a set of overhead cables and carriers on a set “track” to pull you by a rope and handle around a body of water. Wake Parks are facilities people go to, to enjoy wakeboarding, kneeboarding, skiing, and wakeskating. Similar to how people go to a Ski Resort to enjoy snowboarding, and skiing.
Why don’t you just ride behind a boat?
People who have the access to water and a boat understand the fun of going out on a lake or the sea, but not everyone has the money or means to own a boat. One of the benefits that wake parks bring to the industry is that they are facilities that offer access to water sports for those who don’t have access to a boat or body of water. Water sports are no longer limited to those who own or know someone who owns a boat.
Not only this, but Cable Parks make the water sports learning process a little easier as it is in a much more controlled environment. At a Cable Park, all the instruction can happen on the start dock where you are face to face with your instructor for the starting process.
Where as when you are behind a boat you are often 60+ FT behind the boat having to yell to the rider in the water, making it a little more difficult to give the instruction needed. At the Wake Park you are also not having to fight waves from passing boats which often frustrate beginner level riders as they struggle to stay in the correct form as waves push them around. Cable Parks are a great place to learn before hitting the lake/sea in your new boat!
Along with those reasons, people often just enjoy different styles of riding. Many people just want to ride around on a board casually or some want to hit rails and jumps. A Cable Park is the only place where you have the opportunity to do both of these forms of riding in the same place. Cable Parks offer limitless progression from just learning to get up to learning incredibly technical tricks. Beginners and pros stand side by side in line enjoying the fun and stoke of water sports together all without limiting the pro or hindering the beginner.
How to get off the dock?
Can anyone do it?
Whether you are an absolute beginner or a professional rider, The Cable Park is suitable and safe for anyone from the age of 12 years and above. Those under 18 need to be accompanied to the park by an adult and be able to ride independently. Cable Park also offer beginner, private and group coaching sessions.
