Mike Olson from KC Watersports Complex (America's #1 Wakeboard Cable Park on the planet earth) based in Kansas City opened up the cable park for some snowboard shred festing!! As far as I know, this is the first time this has EVER been done in the United States!! A handful of us lucky players had the unique opportunity to strap on our snowboards and hit all the rails that were frozen in the park. Keep an eye out there in the mag's and all the sites for more details and photos!! And if you have not made it out to KCW yet, get off ur a** and come check out what your missing this Spring/Summer!! <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.kcwatersports.com" target="_blank">http://www.kcwatersports.com</a> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769028.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769029.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769030.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769031.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769032.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769033.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769034.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/769035.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by cbixby on January 14, 2010)

Dude thats hilarious. Workin' with what you got = Priceless <BR> <BR>A+

Any one manage a snowboard raley???? <BR> <BR>looks sick!!!!

cbixby 01-14-2010 6:18 AM

I TOTALLY would have thrown one off a kicker, but the kickers were frozen on the side of the lake so no go there, only rails. Air tricks were out of the question too since there was only about half an inch of snow on top of a complete sheet of ice, hence no edge. With enough snow tho, I can see it as a definite possibility. <BR> <BR>If we make it back out, I will make sure to get some sort of kicker out there to throw some raleys... that would be a sick shot. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by cbixby on January 14, 2010)

Chance - If you get back out there, you have to call me!

cbixby 01-14-2010 7:39 AM

I think it was a one time deal since the weather has been so cold, etc... it just sorta worked out. The 40 degree weather we have and will have in the near future will probably melt all that pretty quick. However Wakeboard season is almost here so have your phone close!! Keep in touch!!

fly135 01-14-2010 7:50 AM

I'd love to give it a try.

norbiv 01-14-2010 8:57 AM

so sick! someone should try to do some air tricks! or/and they should build some jumps made out of snow with like a take off and a landing trannie!

richmondrider 01-14-2010 9:09 AM

They must get good deals on Mercury outboard motors...

matt_ostmeyer 01-14-2010 9:24 AM

Nice work guys! Wish I were there! Although the waves have been good lately too <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

I couldnt get past the suspenders. jk looks awesome, I dont see why they cant do this all winter, is it not cold enough to be frozen? Can't comprehend that, from mn

wazzy 01-14-2010 9:57 AM

I was wondering how long it would take for somebody to do this....

guido 01-14-2010 10:25 AM

Nice.... looks like a blast. I think a Sesitec could make a killer cold weather set up.

otown_dave 01-14-2010 10:26 AM

I swear it felt cold enough to do it here in Orlando the past two weeks! That looks sweet but you can keep the cold weather....

andy_nintzel 01-14-2010 10:26 AM

AWESOME! Looks like a BLAST! <BR> <BR>We have used the winch a bunch in Sota to hit handrails on our snow boards, works great, if we can get the winch to start in the cold ass weather.

benbuchholz 01-14-2010 10:35 AM

^^^ I've always just stuck to the ghetto snowmobile/fourwheeler pull! For some reason i remember hearing that that Sesitec 2.0 in wisconsin was thinking about doing a snowboard function in the winter, because of it being at the base of a snow hill?

spearing 01-14-2010 10:46 AM

That is sweet.

Whats up Chance!! I see your holding down KCDub for me. Living in Manhattan is going to SUCK this summer. I won't be cleared to ride till June and even then I won't get to go out there as much as I would like. Maybe once every few weeks. The snowboarding looked like a lot of fun. Todd's gone to the creek a few times this last few weeks. Having a torn ACL sucks. I was hoping to get a little snowboarding in this year but it looks like I'm going to have to wait till next year.

toxis 01-15-2010 8:26 PM

LUH-JIT!!!! You're the man Chance. Definitely good to see Mike allowing people to step out of the ordinary. Perez called me after it was done but I would've liked to come out and see that. Could've been cool. I just might've brought a snowboard just to get a lil riding in. I've only been to the creek three times but I'm stoked on snow right now. We need more snow! <BR> <BR>Todd

tj_in_kc 01-16-2010 7:09 PM

Chance that looks like a lot of fun, glad you had a good time and got some pics to represent KC!

remax 01-20-2010 10:06 PM

very nice guys this looks like fun.

michaelvincz 01-21-2010 6:09 PM

I have been wondering how long this would take myself and always knew it would work. Great way to crosstrain in winter and possibly keep a cable open year round in the midwest. Not much different than a small ski hill with rope tows and rails. Pretty cool guys!

jealous_soul 01-21-2010 8:24 PM

looks like fun.

dwcchad 01-22-2010 12:00 AM

Check out the new video on Wake mag about the Sesitec 2.0 pulling people in winter on a killer park set up.
