The cable works a totally different group of muscles...I assume from the angle of the rope. Just ride the flats to start, get the feel heel and toe, and switch, then start hitting the smaller slider and ramps. The big ramp, I started out just angleing off the sides to get a feel. They should have at least one smaller, wide slider, like the Picnic table at OWC so try that one first. Once your on it, just keep enough tension on the handle to keep you moving across it....if you pull as hard as you do on water, you will slide out. They're pretty easy after a few passes.
This is the Picnic table at OWC last weekend....look for one like that first.
