The promoter seeks to offer easily accessible, affordable opportunity for people throughout Ireland to get involved in the exciting sport of Wakeboarding by developing 'Cableparks'. There still remains a deficiency in training facilities and events at national level, therefore showing the need for promotion of this industry.
