Since The first System 2.0, a majority of attention in wakeboarding has started to shift towards cable parks. While a majority of the United States visual market is broadcasted at boat and tournament wakeboarding, the majority of financial investment and board development is trending towards cable. In 2008, there were only seven cable parks that were operating in the United States. By 2010, there were 27 in operation with many in the works. This year, Texas Cable wakeboarding solidified its national importance with an amazing clockwise cable located in central Texas.
Barefoot Ski Ranch, or BSR for short, is 15 minutes east of I-35 in Waco Texas. This laid back cable park hosts one of the most pristine wakeboarding environments in United States. From the obstacles, to the flat water, to the facilities on the grounds, BSR provides a relaxed and enjoyable wakeboarding experience that is unique to most cable parks in the United States
The obstacles and layout of the cable park are both wakeboard and wakeskate friendly. Each obstacle has a variety of lines and approaches that allow any level of rider progress or expand their creativity on all of the obstacles. With the addition of a kink rail in the near future and other obstacles, BSR is making a statement in the Texas wakeboard scene that they have one of the premier cable parks in the United States.
