NOT OPENED YET! under construction, opening date to be announced...

Cable Wakeboarding Park, Cayo Guillermo, CubaA Cable Water Skiing Park is currently under construction right next to the dolphinarium in Cayo Guillermo. This is a type of water ski (or wakeboard) where the rope and handle of the skier is pulled by a system of overhead electric cable rather than a motorboat.

The cable is generally suspended about 8–9 metres (26–30 feet) above the water, this makes for a different feel than when riding behind a boat. An important advantage of the cable system compared to the boat is environmental friendliness, the electric motor of the cable is quiet, clean and energy-efficient.

The German company Rixen is developing this project in Cayo Guillermo; the inventor Bruno Rixen created the cable wakeboard system back in 1960. The last time we visited the area, it seemed like they were just starting the construction, see here a few pictures taken in mid-December 2016
