Orlando, Florida - If you've ever thought about building a cable wake park, there is no better time than the present to realize your dream. Former Editor of WakeBoarding magazine, Matt Hickman, and founder of The Projects Wake Camp, Pat Panakos, have partnered to launch The Wake Park Project.
The Wake Park Project is a company focused on making it easier for wake park entrepreneurs to begin a project by offering information, services and cable systems. "We've partnered with Sesitec to be their exclusive North American distributor," says Hickman. "I've been to many different cables throughout the US and abroad. After visiting the Camsur Watersports Complex, Sesitec's newest cable wake park installation, it was obvious to me who we needed to partner with. Not only do they make an excellent product, Sesitec won't set up a cable system until they are certain the location is optimal for a perfect installation, ensuring riders get the best pull at each corner - every time. From a rider's standpoint, beginner through pro, Sesitec's dedication to the progression of the sport at all levels means a lot."
Among consulting services, The Wake Park Project offers rails and kickers designed by Pat Panakos. Panakos' years of experience as the wake-rider's carpenter at the Projects Wake Camp has put him at the top of rail design in wake sports. Panakos' skills combined with Hickman's years of watersports experience and constant nurturing of the growth in cable riding makes The Wake Park Project the best conduit for success.
"I'm very excited to be working with The Wake Park Project to grow wake sports in the US," Says Christian Lerchenfeld, Sesitec's owner. "I can't think of a better team to work with than Hickman and Panakos. We are headed into exciting times for cable wake sports."
