61 days till '08 World Cable Ski Championships


Ok, so I understand that I may not be the most intelligent person out there but I didn't even know this. In September there will be a live webcast for the World Cable Ski Championships. I know there are all the local kids from Orlando who wakeboard on a cable but all 3 events? I had to see what jump would look like. Check it out.



So I took a look at the records and all and it isn't that far away from normal three event. The men's slalom world record is a 1/2 a buoy away from Parish's record. Makes sense seeing that you have no wake.... The trick record is held by Alexi Zernossek, hey that name is familiar, with a score of 1130 which is 1100 point shy of Le Forsteirs record. How do you do wake tricks? Cable jump is just shy of 10 m less than its way cooler brother, normal jump, with the cable record being 67.3 m.

So mark your calendars for the live webcast on September 10th-13th or better yet book a flight to London and go check it out! www.cableskiworlds.co.uk Interesting side note on the "World Medal Table" the US isn't even listed. I dont even think anyone from the US competes in cable ski.

    does anyone know if there is an explanation as to the way it all works, like, the pullys or whatever?

  2. I think cable skiing could be pretty cool. I saw an article in slalom ski mag a few years back where a couple pros went out and gave it a go. seemed to like it. and it seems to be working for the europeans, they have had high gas prices for years. Might not be a bad idea to give it a go here.
