Wake the Lake Cable Park on Lake Lanier, Dude!

Please attempt this gnarly move only at Wake the Lake Cable Park, not at home. Thank you.

Surf’s up, Moondoggie.  Before you know it, you’ll be able to grab your stick and get stoked right here on Lake Lanier!

Will Kurhanewicz and Krista Goodrich — Krista, in my opinion, could easily rule the Known World and still be a successful mother, wife and entrepreneur — have the most gnarlatious plans for Wake the Lake, a cable park at LanierWorld, near Lake Lanier Islands’ Sunset Cove.

Attention Gremlins:  A cable park is a pulley system that lets you wakeboard, waterski, wakeskate, kneeboard or tube while being pulled by a cable.  You don’t need a boat and the system is radically environmentally friendly.

Hodads, honeys, posers, bunnys, geeks, dudes and grommets will face mondo waves at Wake the Lake, without the risk of sand facials that are standard on more exotic beaches around the world.

Krista, of Masterpiece Mixers Paint & Party Studios fame, expects to attract water sports enthusiasts from all over the southeast when the park opens in April.  Wake the Lake will operate weekends through Memorial Day and then daily all summer long from 10 AM until 6 PM.

You’ll see lots of colorful doggers and Pendletons, but the big thrills will come from a double-sided ramp that has room for all kinds of splashy fun.  Wake the Lake offers a cheap introduction into wakeboarding and waterskiing — as compared to buying a fancy ski boat with swirly decals and a stereo as powerful as the V-8 engine, and hiring classy bikini models to pretend you’re WAY more popular and cool than you really are even though you’re rich and tanned.

Wake the Lake Cable Park will rent all the gear you’ll need: wakeboards, skis, life jackets and helmets, or you can bring your own.  Pro and amateur events are on the schedule, as well as summer camps, demonstrations, water safety courses and more.

Cable parks are popular in Europe but there are only about 60 in the U.S.  Wake the Lake Cable Park is designed for all skill levels and is ideal for young kids, teens, adults and even “active seniors” who park their motorcycles long enough to get wet.

Visitors to Wake the Lake Cable Park, formerly known as New Wave Cable Park, can purchase a pass for 1-hour, 2-hours, a half-day or a full-day.  Reservations are highly recommended.

There will be a limited number (50) of season passes available for sale and will include a parking pass to LanierWorld.  If you want one, shoot the curl and call soon.  If you wait too long, you’ll definitely take gas and wipe out on a boss deal, dude.

We wish Wake the Lake Cable Park a primo ride with zero wipe outs.  Cowabunga!
