Finally! Hua Hin gets a Cable wakeboard park, comes equipped with a full cable system from Rixen, with 6 towers, short ropes and an 11 meter height this park is sure to be one of the best parks in Thailand for the future.
With a tentative opening date of december 1st and the obstacles going in this week, we are all very excited for what is about to bring joy to the life of every kiter in pranburi on a no wind day. We had a meeting there today to organize a partnership between the school here in pak Nam Pran and the park, they have agreed to work together on a close basis and the possibility of a wind or no wind style event is also on the horizon.
Rixen arrives today with pre built obstacles from germany and will spend the next week setting them up, again i was lucky enough to be invited to try out the new park and obstacles this coming saturday along with a load of Thai riders form the Thai Wake park (who will also be running the pro shop on site)
The crossover of cable wakeboarding and Wake style Kitesurfing is quite huge, with more and more people choosing boots over straps, rails popping up on the beaches and events such as windornowind, we may see the start of a new revolution in Kiteboarding, lets face it, what you gonna do when there is no wind and a cable park right on your doorstep………..HIT THE CABLE!
Watch this space for more updates and info on the new wake park, ill post some pics of it in action after Saturdays session at the Hua Hin cable Park
