Gripping boatless cables, wakeboarders at Wake Nation Houston careen across a 12-acre man-made lake, jumping over floating obstacles and flipping over the peaceful waters. The main cable lake touts five towers that steer up to seven adventurers in centripetal circuits, allowing for riders of all experience levels to share the lake. Accommodating boarding newbies, the practice cable area gently introduces first-timers into the water with an easy start system and motivational ’80s anthems. With a colorful board tethered tightly to feet, aqueous sportsmen cruise buoyantly across the lake aided by the staff’s careful advice and bullhorn enthusiasm. Boarders don water-repelling life jackets and sturdy helmets before grinding on large sliders or trying to head-butt Poseidon himself.

About Wake Nation Cincinnati
Mechanized towers stand along the shoreline of Wake Nation Cincinnati's 10-acre lake, steering riders across the water as they grip cables rather than lines attached to boats. Cruising clockwise from the cables, up to seven people at a time can wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, or waterskate around the aquatic arena at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. Wake Nation designed the main lake for everyone from beginners to elite-level riders, and peppered it with manmade obstacles and floating jumps, allowing boarders to zip along and pull off tricks that sometimes aren’t possible behind a boat. They also have a smaller practice lake for beginners and young riders from 5 years old and up.
Experienced staff members observe boarders at all times, supplying safety tips, training, and navigational advice for circumventing Poseidon’s rose bushes. Visitors can bring their own equipment, or rent or buy necessary gear from Wake Nation’s pro shop. A cast of instructors lead lessons and observe riders during freestyle riding, fun summer camps, and special events such as birthday parties.
