Cable wakeboarding parks are spreading throughout the entire world. The overhead cable ski systems are constantly being upgraded and turning wakeboarding into a cheap and accessible extreme boardsport.
New wakeboard parks are being opened in France, Germany, Russia, Great Britain, USA, Turkey and Ukraine. The world's most populous country has also a major cable wakeboard facility.
Aktion Parks announced that it has joined with the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) in an effort to make wakeboarding an Olympic sport.
The journey began back in July when riders qualified from 13 different cable parks for the honor to compete in the 2012 National Points Championship.
