Catch Air On the Water at the Abbotsford Wakeboarding Park!

June 23rd, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Abbotsford Wakeboarding Park - Valley Wake ParkDid you know that there’s an Abbotsford wakeboarding park? Valley Wake Park offers cable-wakeboarding, SUP, and more in BC’s Fraser Valley!

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of wakeboarding. Speeding across open water on a warm summer day, hitting a kicker and pulling an ollie – now that’s living. At Valley Wake, the Abbotsford wakeboarding park, you don’t even need a boat! Valley Wake Park offers cable wakeboarding.

Wait – what’s cable wakeboarding?

Traditional wakeboarding involves being pulled along behind a boat. This leaves you at the mercy of the boat with longer setups to practice your skills and usually a lot of swimming if you fall. Cable wakeboarding is cleaner, quieter, more efficient, and environmentally friendly when compared to the traditional method.

In cable wakeboarding, the tow line is connected to a cable running along a series of towers. An operator controls the speed of the cable, providing the speed you need to learn to wakeboard, to practice a specific stunt, and anything in between. Should you dump into the water, the cable operator simply brings the tow line back to you.

Both beginners and experts enjoy cable parks because the system makes learning or perfecting your moves that much easier. Cable wakeboarding is an increasingly popular sport. There are more than 400 cable parks around the world and the sport is even being considered for the Olympic Games in 2020.

Valley Wake Park is the answer for anyone looking for something exciting and physical to do this summer in Abbotsford. Their cable park has a wide variety of obstacles for you to practice on. There’s a butter box, an incline rail with angled skirting, and four kickers in small, medium, and large sizes. The A frame rail is insane with a variety of kink angles and lengths for a different ride from every angle.

Valley Wake Park also offers SUP, lessons, a pro shop, rentals, and more. Best of all, if you’re a wakeboarding “third wheel,” you can always simply recline on shore and soak up some rays. SO what are you waiting for? Come out to the Abbotsford wakeboarding mecca, Valley Wake Park!
