Cable Parks 2010: Third Coast Cables

July 13, 2010

**Lafayette, Louisiana**

Slated to open midsummer, Third Coast Cables is Louisiana’s first cable park, putting a fourth Southern state on the cable park map. Featuring a System 2.0 setup, the park will give a lot of people the opportunity to ride, hit obstacles, work on air tricks and wakeskate. Stretching 700 feet across the 120-foot-wide man-made lake, Third Coast Cables will feature a variety of obstacles. Additionally, the crawfish pond behind the two-tower setup will double as a winch park, where all you need to do is BYOW (bring your own winch). With 11 years of wakeboarding experience under his belt, owner/operator Luke Romero has been absolutely flooded with local inquiries about when Third Coast Cables is going to open, how it works, etc. With such a high level of excitement prior to the park even opening, surely this is a sign of many great things to come from Third Coast Cables.
