Why Cable Wakeboard?

The competitors are judged on figures (tricks) performed through the course within a time limit, and appraised on difficulty, originality and style.
The construction of the cable infrastructure is low cost as it is delivered ready for use, is temporary and does not require a large surface area. The events can take place in natural lakes or artificial water areas in urban areas or alternatively in established cable parks.
