CABLE- Like it or Not-

Anybody who watches wakeboard clips online has probably noticed the influx of cable footage.
I am all for the cause. I think cable is great and I hope it continues to progress. My problem is that almost every wake vid online is of cable riding.

What happened to all the boat footage? Does anyone agree with me?

It does not help support the boat industry. I would like to think that it would make better glass on the lakes, but I am afraid the boarders would only be replaced with less considerate tubers...

I agree with you. I personally would rather be behind a boat with the family but I have seen an influx of vd's from cable parks.

I have also never ridden cable.

Another consideration is that if cable gets too big our lakes will be like skiing on mini-golf courses with all the obstacles that'll be floating out there.


I'm kidding, of course. Terrain is what makes the cable videos popular. Much more interesting than similar looking flips and spins behind the boat to the average viewer. Not to mention the danger level increases with the addition of solid objects to damage yourself on.
