Only cable system park for wake boarders in the state, one of only 14 in the country
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — A one-of-a-kind water park has landed in the Lafayette area. This park is built and designed especially for wake boarders by large cable systems. This means boats are no longer necessary to go wake boarding anymore. This is the only cable system in Louisiana, and one of the only fourteen large cable systems in the country, bringing in riders from all over.
"It's a little surreal for me because I'm out here everyday. A lot of my friends that come out here that see it for the first time are freaking out and they're like 'Oh my God this is amazing.' I knew in the beginning what I was doing, and I'm still just amped up but it's a surreal feeling," says the owner of Cajun X Cables Phillip Smith.
Tomorrow is the grand opening and will feature pro-riders from all over putting on a show for those watching, and help out others that are willing to learn. The Hibachi Hero truck will cater the event tomorrow as well. The park is now open everyday from 11 am to 7 pm.
