Cable park wakeboarding has been enjoying extraordinary growth in recent times and there are parks popping up all over the place. This year, the Wake Park World Series (WPWS) will have five stops on three different continents. With the biggest ever wake park prize payout up for grabs (a whopping $145,000), we’re set to see a remarkable tour.
