Wakeboarding is an increasingly popular sport with new wakeparks opening all over the globe. The concept initially began with skiers being pulled behind a motorboat, which then evolved to riding and performing tricks off the ‘wake‘ that was created. The sport combines the aspect of fun with an active and heathly lifestyle.
The first waterski cable was built at Bordesholmer Lake, Germany, in the late 1950‘s. Further prototype
ropeways opened in Hamburg and the Baltic Sea, and in the 1960s the first watercourse was built in Benidorm, Spain.
