Cable Parks 2010: Manna Wake

Fresno, California



It was just a matter of time before cable parks spread to California, and Manna Wake is the first park to open its doors. This fully rider-owned and operated cable park features a Sesitec System 2.0 cable that spans 700 feet. Whether you’re looking to wakeboard or wakeskate, hit obstacles or work on air tricks, this is the place to do it. If inspiration is what you’re after, you can find plenty here — especially when local pros Randall Harris and Ricky Gonzalez are out shredding. There’s also a boat lake where you can grab a traditional pull. Annual members get half off everything at Manna Wake.
