Dirty Habits Wakepark opens in Cape Town
Posted on September 02 2014
Dirty Habits and Solid Air have just finished the Twin Tower Wakeboard rail park at the Hillcrest Quarry.
The exclusive rail park has opened in Cape Town, 15 minutes from Bloubergstrand on the way to Durbanville in the Wine Valley
The rail park is ideally situated in a quarry with 100m high cliffs surrounding it, blocking the predominant South East summer winds.
The water is warm with a huge grass beach, braai facilities, a bar, good fishing with Trout, Carb and Bass, and an chill island that lies alongside the cable and obstacles.
Advanced ridingThe Twin Tower System (Solid Air Ride System) is the best way to hit rails and kickers, as no other towing device can give you the same amount of time on the obstacles. When you fall, you get picked up instantly and can try that trick again. The turns at each end are quicker than a boat, jet ski or lap of a full cable and allow you to hit the same rail over 30 times in a ten minute session!
No more swimming to the shore and then walking back to the dock.
