B.C. orders closure of West Kelowna wake park
That's why the Whiplash Cable Wake Park opened in West Kelowna this summer. It's one of only three cable wakeboard parks in Canada, but the idea has gained popularity in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Instead of being pulled behind a boat on a wake board or waterskiis, people are pulled from a network of overhead cables.
While it opened not even three weeks ago, the Whiplash Cable Wake Park has had to shut down. The company received a cease and desist order from the provincial government because of zoning issues over their water use permit.
Conrad Wiker is the owner and general manager of Whiplash Cable Wake Park. He explains the situation to Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
