Hello,

We are building a cable park in Europe and we are thinking about which obstacles, we should put.
So if you have to choose 8 kickers/sliders what would you choose???

I'd go with : 2 kickers, a funbox with a wall (like the one in philipines), a wedge (up rail), a ghetto tube, a flat bar, a C rail and a step up with a wider slide on the top (like the one they had a the projects).

So what would you do?

the A-frame with a transfer option at wake nation is probably the most fun obstacle Ive ever been on

You would want some easier stuff for the beginners and some tougher rails to give better rider's a challenge too. It looks like you've made a pretty good list already. Good luck with your venture.

2 bigger kickers with transition, a smaller kicker for skaters and beginners, flat box, and flat bar... those 5 cover your basis. You could combine the smaller kicker with a rail on the side like at OWC. Sounds like you have some good ideas for the other features. Rainbow rails, mellow a-frames, transfer boxes, step-ups/ step-downs, and round rails are some advanced fun options for the other 3 obstacles.

Unit is good for sure but none of the best park in the world has Unit obstacles (twp, CWC, mc cormicks,...) simply because you better have 10 home made stuff than 3 unit

Jean,
Shoot me an email, rossdantonio@gmail.com (can't find private messages for some reason today) I am currently working on a project and have some information that may be helpful.

CWC is far from the best cable park in the world, their obstacles are falling apart!

ok it's used to be if you prefer. the fact is that all the best park does not have unit slider
