Damn thats fucking awesome!! Did you know there are only 8 or so cable parks in North America? You are soooo lucky!!
Yeah I found that out recently, I had a blast yesterday.
Nice job! You will get the hang of it in no time. You are a good snowboarder to be riding so well in such a short time, so this will come pretty quick to you I am sure. That looks fun. So how does the cable system work?
I am not sure if it's an electric system or gas I would have to find that out. There is a platform in the bottom were you wait in line for your turn, then the operating guy gives you the handle and you are good to go. Your line is hooked to the cable and get ready for the pull of your life, you go from o to 30km in 1 second or so, it fucking pulls. I am actually not that sore today, so I am thinking that I might be able to go either tomorrow or this coming weekend. It's kind of a pity that Thoris bailed out on me, to be honest I think he is scared of the water, the thing is dark and well FL is known for alligators so I don't blame him at all. He claims that he might try it again later on.
I will take a video of the system for you, next time I visit.
you've never been behind a boat on your board have you? there's nothing like having that actual wake to play with. by the way, what kind of board did you get?
The answer is yes I have been behind a boat but not with a wake board, I have been but on a knee board and on skis. This was done when I was younger back in Colombia, my uncle owns a small private island in a huge man made damn and well we used to hit that place very often . It was a blast we had a couple of boats, 1 wave runner, every kind of ski, knee board, and other goodies. I even went parachuting we had a couple of those, they are the best buy far.
My new board is an O'brien Ace, it's their entry level board for 08, the funny thing is that the board has the same body of their pro board. The board is not forgiving and you have to know how to handle it, the boots are very comfy and fast to lace in and out off. I paid $250 for it, it came with the boots as well, not a bad deal to start with.
