Rixen US Cable Wake Park Projects


Father and son combo, Jim and Mike McCormick brought a Rixen cable system to Seffner,Florida in July of 2008. Jim McCormick, now 70, built the current 80 acre facility in 1976. For the past seven years his eldest son, Michael has been running the day to day business of the school, which has become a mecca in the professional water-ski world. The addition of the new clockwise rotating cable wake park is just the next step in the evolution of a legend’s vision and dream. Not only is McCormick’s home to only right turning cable in the United States but they also the first park to utilize the Little Bro two tower system from Rixen and Cable Wake Parks.

Wake Nation

Plain and simple, we are guys who love wakeboarding. I saw my first cable wakeboarding park in the Philippines when I was on a medical mission in Naga City, Philippines. I was lucky enough to join Medlend on one of their many medical missions around the world. As fate would have it, this medical mission was is Naga City and we were staying in a hotel near the Camsur Watersports Complex. There were kids from around the World staying at this hotel and I asked them what the hell they all were doing here? They said they were there for the cable park and told me to come by to check it out. I took one spin on the cable and was completely blown away. I’ve been hooked ever since. When I got back to the States, I quit my job and started Wake Nation. I spent a long time looking for the ideal location to open our first cable park and decided Cincinnati would be a great choice.

KC Watersports

The construction of the park started in October 2002 and the doors opened in May of 2004. The park is owned and operated by Mike Olson. The lake covers eight acres and has an island in the middle. At the complex there is also a paint ball course for enthusiasts just like Keith Lyman who spent all of his time during his last visit there instead of on the water. Currently only 20 acres of the complex’s 40 acres are being used, so there is still plenty of room for future projects. The cable itself is a six-carrier cable, meaning six people can be on the water at one time. The park is located 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City off the 169 Highway. There is lodging ten minutes from the park and one of the best barbecue restaurants in KC, K&M, only five minutes away.
