The exhilarating sport of cable wakeboarding has arrived in Nevada, and it’s only available at the Lake Las Vegas community’s private 320-acre lake. Cable wakeboarding is a surface water sport with participants pulled by an overhead cable system manufactured by Sesitic. The grand opening event is 1 p.m. to 7 p.m,, Saturday, April 29.
Cable wakeboarding and master plan’s other water activities are managed by Lake Las Vegas Water Sports. The new company was created by water sports enthusiasts Trevor Pope and David Hadden in partnership with the full-service Lake Las Vegas Marina for a one-stop shop for all the Lake Las Vegas water amenities. They include cable wakeboarding, flyboard (flying across the lake through water pressure, only available in Clark County at Lake Las Vegas), stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, pedal boats, and the La Contessa yacht. Rentals and lessons are available throughout the year.
The grand opening event will feature cable wakeboarding and flyboarding demonstrations; a cash cube, dunk tank and social media opportunities to win gift certificates totaling about $5,000 applicable for the various water sports; 50 percent off pricing for wakeboarding (regular price starts at $30 for a one-hour pass) and boat, hoverboard and bike rentals; and a barbecue. Hosted by the new Seasons Grocery in MonteLago Village, the barbecue will feature special pricing on menu items created by Chef Scot Commings, the Season 12 winner of “Hell’s Kitchen” and new chef of Lake Las Vegas’ award-winning Reflection Bay Golf Club. The MonteLago Village Beerfest is also on April 29 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
