Action Water Sports Brings Cable Wakeboarding To Michigan

In Press Release by admin

First cable system of it’s kind in the state of Michigan

HUDSONVILLE, MI – Action Water Sports, Michigan’s leading boat dealer and watersports Pro Shop is excited to announce the creation of Action Wake Park, a cable watersports park coming summer of 2015.

A first of it’s kind in the state of Michigan; cable watersports systems tow wakeboarders and waterskiers around the lake without the need for a boat. Cable systems were invented in Europe in the 60’s and have since spread to the United States. There are currently around 20 similar systems located around the country with the nearest located in Cincinnati, Ohio. “We’ve been watching cable parks grow over the last 5 years and see them as another great opportunity to spend time on the water with friends and families. It matches our goals at AWS of ‘Bringing Families Together’ and we’re excited to be able to offer this new form of recreation to the community” said Jerry Brouwer, President of Action Water Sports. “We’re excited to finally move forward and make that dream a reality.”

The park will significantly reduce the cost to get into wakeboarding and waterskiing by removing the need to first purchase a boat. The park will operate similar to a downhill ski resort where guests can rent gear and pay for a cable pass by the hour or by the day.

The project will begin excavation later this spring and will be located near the current Action Water Sports dealership in Hudsonville at exit 62 off 196. The project is expected to be completed and open for business this summer.
