I'm looking for a new wakeboard I can use in the cable park. I'm just confused, and I don't know what to look after. How can i see that the board is made for cable park use?
I have looked at these boards:

Are these boards made for boat use or cable park use?

You can use any board you want for the cable, but since you are most likely hitting features (rails, boxes, kickers), you usually want one with a sintered base (grind base as liquid force calls it). Without this, the base of the board will get trashed pretty quickly.
Its probably also a good idea to get a board with removable fins as opposed to molded-in fins and most people like a board with some flex characteristics

Noob question....

Unless you are hard core and want a flex board, wouldn't any old board work?

I love fins on my board behind the boat. I like them for acceleration and pop. In the cable park, you really don't need the acceleration. Until you are doing pressess where you want flex, I'd suggest riding a beater board.

Have you heard of "Spot" boards? I got a chance to use one and their legit for rails!
