and friends of board sports,
After two successful years with the EAME Cable Championships in 2004 and the ONE Wakeboard Open in 2005 it’s a pleasure for us to welcome you at the
WWC Cable Wakeboard World Championships 2006
by: ONE, NOKIA, PROTEST
held in commission and with permit of the Austrian Waterski Federation (ÖWSV) and the district of Upper Austria in Feldkirchen, next to Linz.
Date: 26th to 30th of July 2006
Place: jetlake Cable Feldkirchen / Austria
After the great success from the last two years we are still motivated to improve our event and trying to organize the biggest Cable Wakeboard Worlds ever seen. At the moment, the jetlake cable park gets totally rebuilt and we are planning following highlights:
Feldkirchen is 20 minutes northwest from Linz (Austria’s biggest city after capital Vienna).
The recreation area, which is spread around five swimming lakes in Feldkirchen next to the Danube, has a magnetic effect on thousands of sun-bathers during the summer. In 2000 the company jetlake built the necessary infrastructure to transform the facility around the cable-lake to a communications hot spot for all sport freaks. The Austrian Wakeboard scene received new and unique impacts. The cable-facility represents a wonderful platform for training as well as international contests.
Jetlake, well known after the last two years, is situated on a lake in a beautiful green landscape next to the river Danube. It’s a Rixen cableway 4 mast system.
