Two hundred riders from 29 nations will participate in the 2014 Cable Wakeboard World Championships, at Norsjø Cable Park, Telemark County, Norway.

Between August 10th-16th, the best cable wakeboarders in the planet will head to Northern Europe for the 8th edition of the Cable Wakeboard World Championships.

The top-ranked athletes, including Frédéric von Osten, Sophie-Marie Reimers, Julia Rick and Dominik Gührs, will battle for titles in wakeboarding and wakeskating.

A total of 14 divisions will crown champions, in both male and female categories. The Cable Wakeboard World Championships are held every two years, under the supervision of the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF).

Norsjø Ferieland offers a five-tower cable park that is 11.5 meters high and 550 meters long. It was built by Rixen, opened in 2004, and recently renewed with six brand new elements, including a powerful and challenging 30-meter long Silas Thurman pool stair set.

The push through, or punch through technique allows surfers to get past a small broken wave and reach the lineup without having to duck dive or turtle roll.
