A lasting legacy at Lotus Pond, Kaohsiung, venue for the waterskiing events at the 2009 World Games Kaohsiung has been the creation of the Lotus Cable Park.

Some 50+ riders from 10 counties have assembled here in Kaohsiung for the 2015 IWWF 1st Asia & Oceania Cable Wakeskate Championships.


The opening ceremony on the morning of 23rd October 2015 saw local dignitaries attend including Mr. Kevin Huang, Director of the Department of Sports, Kaohsiung City and Mrs Fan Sun-Lu Director-general Kaohsiung City Government Bureau of Education. Representing the IWWF were Russell Morris, President IWWF Oceania and Chris Howarth IWWF Asia Secretary General.

 It was then straight into the competition kicking off the first day with the Asian Wakeskate and Asian Wakeboard Championships. A break in the middle of the day allowed for the first round of the AO Under 15 Girls & Boys Cable Wakeboard Qualifiers. 

There was plenty of action on the water with some intense riding.
