Hi Riders,

Only few weeks and the 2nd IWSF Cable Wakeboard World Championships shall be opened.

Lets look back to the first Championships held in August 2001 at Duisburg /Germany.

At that time we have had 106 riders from 15 countries, a lot for the 1st! They came from all five continents. It was a big festival of this new board sport.

Drug controls were obliged. 15 competitors from several federations were tested and all results were negative. This clear result stopped the rumours about this new board sport.

The Australians took part with 15 riders. They went home with three Gold medals of seven that was given. And with third place in team scoring behind Germany and United Kingdom.

Far from OZ they was successful absolutely.

And I like to say for the 2nd CW Worlds: If anyone likes to get Gold, at first they must beat the current from the host country.


Cable Wakeboarding is growing worldwide. In the last two years at all five continentals we have seen new cableways projected, built and opened. With wakeboarding cable parks have got a new and safe future.

Cableways especially for wakeboarding were projected and built. They have higher pylons and the distances from pylon to pylon are shorter. So it is possible to build wakeboard courses on smaller lakes now..

The organisers from the Queensland federation are working very hard in order to offer all riders, families, friends, guests and sponsors the brand new LOGAN Cable Ski Park. The Grand Opening will be held at the Cable Wakeboard Worlds 2003.

May be that not so many riders from Europe can go to OZ in October. But I hope that all cableways in Asia will send their best riders to Australia. So we are looking for China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. We are ready to help if you would have bureaucracy problems.

Please come on, take part and help so that the boarder family will have a strong Asian participation.


I’m very excited and look forward to the

2nd Cable Wakeboard World Championships at Logan Cable Sport Park


I hope to see you all.

Australia is an extremely safe place to travel. Aussies love to show tourists their beautiful country. English is the language spoken but we are a very multi cultural country. It is probably common sense not to carry large amounts of cash around. Traveler’s cheques are not widely accepted but the preferred method of payment for shoppers is AMERICAN EXPRESS, DINERS CLUB, VISA, MASTERCARD and EFTPOS.
