Cable park? What is it? In Marrakech? Where is there a lake?
All questions that arose in my mind when I learned about the new Cable Park in Marrakech.
A cable park is a place that provides facilities for all kinds of water sports, including wake boarding, knee boarding, wake stating, bi-skiing, tricks and slalom. So not just your plain old water skiing.
Waky Marrakech is south of Marrakech on “Les Jardins de l’Atlas” resort site and they created an artificial lake to make it possible. Amazing in such an arid area of the world.
A project of Palmeraie Development, the lake was specially designed for water skiing and wake boarding by Francis Koot.
They plan to offer night wake boarding sessions – just the thing for the magical nights of Marrakech.
Wake boarding is a combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing.
Kneeboarding is great for those learning the sport as you are kneeling on the board – not so far to fall into the water!
Wake skating is similar to wakeboarding without the bindings- a bit like skateboarding.
Bi Skiing refers to traditional skiing. Considered the best way to develop good balance, it is good for beginners to build up good technical foundations for water skiing and from there to master other disciplines such as wakeboarding.
Tricks Trick skiing is one of the 3 disciplines in classic skiing, along with Slalom and Jumping.
