Waterskïen, wakeboarden en wakeskaten aan de kabelbaan
De Pro Cable was de allereerste kabelbaan op Lakeside Paradise.
We hebben deze omgedoopt tot de “Pro Cable” door de grote variatie aan obstakels en de snelheid waarmee de kabelbaan draait.
De nieuwe kabelbaan dopen we “Rookie Cable”. Deze kabelbaan zal, in tegenstelling tot de Pro Cable, rechtsdraaiend zijn en op een tragere snelheid worden ingesteld. Hier komen 7 obstakels in te liggen.
Small cable 2.0
Midden mei ’21 gaat de 2.0 opnieuw open. Deze kabelbaan is uitermate geschikt voor een allereerste kennismaking met deze fantastische watersport.
HOW DOES A CABLE PARK WORK?
The wakeboarder or water skier makes a 'dry' start from the starting platform, which is perpendicular to the bypass cable. Once on the water you can make several rounds. When you fall into the water, you swim to the shore, walk back and start again.
The engine is located at the starter house. This ensures that the cable can rotate at a speed of 0 to 50 km / hr.
There is a "carrier" every 90 meters. This is an attachment in the two bypass cables with a grab that can take a ski line. There are eight ski lines and thus 8 riders can be pulled on the water at the same time to go waterski, wakeboard, kneeboard, wakeskate and skurf.
WHAT IS A CABLE PARK?
Waterskiing and wakeboarding on the cable are popular watersports that appeals to both young and old. A tow lift is used instead of a boat. This consists of five pillars that are erected around and above the lake. Each support pillar has a wheel arch with two tensioned steel cables all around it. At Lakeside Paradise, the length of the cable park is 720 meters, which makes us one of the longest cable parks in Europe.
IS A CABLE PARK ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
A waterski cableway is not harmful to the environment, not in terms of energy consumption or noise. It is powered by a frequency-controlled 45 kW electric motor which consumes an avg. 25 kW / hour of green energy. Measurements by ALTA Cableski BV show that the cable park has a noise level of less than 50 decibels at a distance of 30 meters.
IS WAKEBOARDING AT THE CABLE PARK LIKE KITESURFING AT SEA?
No, it is similar, but certainly not the same. On a wakeboard, you stand straight on your board, while when kitesurfing you often hang backwards or sit in a trapeze or harness. You do not use fins on a cable park, so that the obstacles can be taken safely.
However, wakeboarding at the cable is good practice. You can create a lot of board feeling in a short time, and thus start the next kitesurfing session with more experience. Kitesurfing lessons can always be booked at beach club our Surfers Paradise!
