Long Description:
[FR]

"The Spin Cablepark c’est la pratique des sports nautiques tractés tels que le ski nautique, le wakeboard (skateboard aquatique) , le kneeboard (planche à genoux) , le wakeskate (snowboard aquatique) , accessibles à tous et sans bateau. Il s’agit d’un tire-fesse posé en boucle sur l’eau et formant un parcours de 620m.

Un système de « deux poulies » (un aller-retour) permet l’apprentissage du démarrage même pour les plus jeunes.

Des obstacles (kickers, wedge, slider, roofbox, softbox) sont placés de part et d’autres du parcours pour les plus aguerris.

Le bâtiment près du lac, bardé de panneaux photovoltaïques permet au téléski d’être autonome en énergie."

"The Spin Cablepark is the practice of towed water sports such as water skiing, wakeboarding (water skateboarding), kneeboarding, wakeskating (water snowboarding), accessible to all and without a boat. It is a buttock lift placed in a loop on the water and forming a 620m course.

A system of "two pulleys" (one round trip) allows even the youngest riders to learn how to start.

Obstacles (kickers, wedge, slider, roofbox, softbox) are placed on both sides of the course for the more experienced.

The building near the lake, lined with photovoltaic panels allows the ski lift to be energy self-sufficient."
