Park Profiles: McCormicks Cable Park

Seffner, Florida | 813-681-4441 | skimccormick.com

In May, Shaun Murray, Erik Ruck and Jimmy LaRiche made McCormicks cable park their first stop on a weeklong riding road trip. All left-foot-forward riders, they couldn't wait to session McCormicks' clockwise-rotating system — the only one of its kind in the United States — because it makes learning new moves so much easier for left-footers. The trio rode so hard at McCormicks that they very nearly wiped themselves out for the rest of the trip. Murray, Ruck and LaRiche aren't alone. Since the cable park opened last summer, McCormicks has drawn legions of Orlando pros from Andrew Adkison and Keith Lidberg to JD Webb and Dallas Friday — and with good reason. Whether you want to ride the country's highest cable, take a session on an epic private lake or learn that elusive trick, McCormicks' 80-acre complex has you covered.

"At McCormicks, they make everybody feel like part of the family. Not just their regulars, but also the kid who is trying wakeboarding for the very first time. They also never stand still. There's always a new obstacle being built and an idea being tried, and a lot of people having a good time doing it." — Andrew Adkison
