Even though Wake Nation Cincinnati is just a little more than a year old, it has turned a lot of heads in that short time and become Ohio’s top wakeboarding destination. With the country’s first six-tower cable system, Wake Nation Cincinnati’s oval shape and 2-acre island make for an ideal setup. Wake Nation Cincinnati has user-friendly corners, a smooth pull, buttery water, high towers and great pop for air tricks. Plus, with eight bomber obstacles in this 10-acre man-made lake, wakeboarders, wakeskaters, pros and beginners alike will love the diversity and quality of the obstacles. On top of a couple of new super sick obstacles, Wake Nation has also added a two-tower cable system, on the newly created “Practice Pond.” This new straight-line setup makes learning to ride tremendously easy, and it’s an incredible place to work on air tricks. Just 30 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Wake Nation also features a massive observation deck, a well-stocked pro shop, friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.
