Cable Parks 2011: Orlando Watersports Complex

Right in the heart of the wakeboarding capital of the world, Orlando Watersports Complex has welcomed the world's top pro riders and delivered every time. While the park has helped launch the careers of riders like Dallas Friday, Phillip Soven and Adam Errington, OWC isn't simply for the pros. In fact, the park truly has something for every rider. From the beginner and advanced full-size cables to the recently added Sesitec System 2.0 setup and tournament-tested boat lake, OWC boasts the most complete park in the United States. After more than a decade in operation, OWC is, quite simply, one of the world's premier parks for riders of all levels, and no trip to wakeboarding's mecca is complete without a pilgrimage to OWC.

Twice the tows

OWC is the only cable park in America that features two full-size cables. Beginner to intermediate riders love the easier corners and slower speeds of OWC’s larger cable while more advanced riders can shred all day long on OWC’s smaller park, which features almost a dozen structures, including fun boxes, kickers and transfers.

Not just cable

OWC’s boat lake has hosted some of wakeboarding’s elite events, including the Nautique Wakes Games and the WWA Wakeboard World Championships. The world-class spot is outfitted with the latest and greatest Super Air Nautique tow boats as well as world-class instruction from Jon Bemis and other professional coaches.

Get equipped

As one of the world’s most iconic cables, OWC had to have a pro shop to match. Enter Performance Ski & Surf, one of the largest and most experienced wake-sports retailers in the country. Find the perfect setup from Hyperlite with the full support of Performance Ski & Surf’s experienced staff.

Progress faster

OWC’s new System 2.0 cable setup serves as the first step to the park’s pair of full-size cables. Whether you’re getting up for the first time or trying to nail your first nosepress, the forgiving pull and quick pickup of OWC’s System 2.0 will help get you there.
