Cable ski is simply water-skiing where the skier is not pulled by a boat but by an overhead cable
which is suspended 8-12 meters above water surface by specifically designed pylons.
One can enjoy the thrills of Wakeboarding, Wakeskating, Kneeboarding, Double-Skis, Slaloms and even Barefoot Skiing.
Basically you can do anything that glides on water on the cable system.
Most cable-ski parks around the world run counter clockwise around an enclosed lake.
It is powered by a variable speed electric motor which can maintain speed of between 20 – 65 km/h.
The cable circuit varies between 400 – 800 meters and can circulate 4 – 12 riders at one time
depending on the size and the number of carriers on the particular the cable system.
For a 800 meters circuit like BCP (Batam Cable-Ski Park), with 8 carriers 100 meters apart, it can take up to 8 skiers at one time.
All skiers have to begin from the starting dock, taking turns to ski off an astroturf or from a takeoff bench onto the lake,
making transition onto the water easy.
It’ll take each skier around 2 minutes to complete one round with the cables running at the usual speed of 28 km/h.
There is no limitations as to how many rounds a skier can go.
If you fall, just simply swim to the shore and head back to the starting dock. And in BCP only, we provide Ojek pick up service. (Motor Pick Up)
Cable skiing is safe, clean, quiet, and environmentally friendly. There is no risk of oil or fuel contamination.
The major advantage is that there is no expensive motorboat needed, this makes it very affordable for the individual skier.
Today, wakeboarding dominates the cable scene and nowhere is it more accessible than doing it on the cable.
With more than 140 cable parks around the world, its clear why wakeboarding is one of the world’s fastest growing extreme sports.
Its not just a sport, its becoming a lifestyle. And for riders of all ages and skill levels , the cable always has something to offer…
