In the Spring of1983 Cypress Gardens skiers traveled South to Deerfield Beach to participate in celebrating the opening of the Ski Rixen Cable Park, the first in the U.S. It was great fun and a bit of a challenge – taking the pyramid around the corners had it’s moments… 🙂 Looking back at the growth of cable parks, Bruno Rixen was a bit ahead of time with cable water skiing, but when wakeboards appeared they were fun riding for all ages and abilities, an instant hit at cable parks, which began a growth in popularity that continues today. #waterskiing #wakeboard #skirixen #showskiing #lifeonthewater (at Deerfield Beach, Florida)
