Adrenaline Adventures has built Canada's largest and best cable wakeboarding system - it's the only one of its kind in North America! We offer two lakes for wakeboarding customers - one lake has two training systems which each allow one rider to learn the basics of cable wakeboarding. This small lake is dedicated to private lessons and birthday party groups. The second, larger lake is over 10 acres in size, and has six towers surrounding it which suspend a cable system which is used to tow riders around the lake - it's an experience you won't find anywhere else!
How Does It Work?
On the smaller training lake, we have a dedicated operator who is also certified as a wakeboarding instructor there to help you learn to cable wakeboard. Once your equipment is on, you'll be instructed on how to ride the system. The overhead cable will begin towing you down the lake until you reach the end and tow you right back to the start. If you fall at any point, the operator stops the cable until you're back in position and ready to keep going.
On the big lake, our starting dock gives you several ways of getting into the water. Up to six riders can be towed on this system at a time, and up to seven sliders and kickers are in the water at any given point for those who want to get some air aong the way. If you fall down in the big lake, you'll have to swim to the shore and walk back to the starting dock.
Do I Need My Own Equipment?
No! We have all the equipment you need to wakeboard available for rent, including boards, life vests and helmets. If you have your own equipment, feel free to bring it along.
** Note that only Canadian Coast Guard Approved life vests will be allowed on the water (include a zipper and two buckles).
Frequently Asked Questions
What is cable wakeboarding??
Cable wakeboarding is simply wakeboarding while being pulled not by a boat, but by an overhead cableski system. It's definitely the coolest addition to the distinguished list of extreme sports throughout the world, because it combines the best of the extreme nature of wakeboarding without the need for (or expense of) a boat. Cable is an enormously valuable and important element of the entire sport of wakeboarding.
So how does it work? How do you ride without a boat?
Suspended in the air by a series of towers (or masts) surrounding a small lake, an overhead cable rotates in a (usually) counterclockwise motion around the lake. Along the cable are a number of carriers from which ski ropes will attach to and pull a rider or skier around the lake.
Why is it so popular? What makes cable so cool?
Basically, cable is ideal for riders who have limited or no access to a boat. It's drastically less expensive compared to all the costs involved with boat wakeboarding, with a lot less hassle. Cableways are clean, efficient, quiet, and overall, very environmentally friendly. You can ride many more sets in a day than you ever could behind the boat. Riding on the cable actually helps your riding behind the boat. And it's more forgiving on your body than boat wakeboarding. But the best part is, you can do every trick on the cable that can be done behind the boat, and more. And, thanks to all the above, it's the perfect gateway for anyone who wants to get into the world of wakeboarding.
Let's look at that again. No expensive boat, no gasoline, no maintenance, no air or water pollution, no traffic-clogged lake, no set up or cleanup necessary, less risk on your body, and you can still become one of the top wakeboarders in the world, all while having a great time with your friends. Nice concept, wouldn't you think?
How can you call it cable wakeboarding when there is no wake?
You ride using a wakeboard. It's that simple. It's still wakeboarding because every single trick that has been, is now, or ever could be thrown behind a boat can and is being thrown on the cable. The tricks are identical. Boat or cable, the sport is still the same. It's just a slightly different method to the same awesome madness.
