Cable Water Skiing with Ski Rixen at Quiet Waters Park

We're trying something new here, mixing both Social and Athletic.....

We're going Cable Water Skiing at one of the very first cable water ski resorts in the US. Think of water skiing (or kneeboarding or wakeboarding) without the need of a boat.

Ski Rixen offers cable waterskiing at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach. It's very fun, safe, and awfully addicting.

I am still working out the details with the owner of Ski Rixen. Depending on the number of RSVP's we get, we will likely reserve the park to ourselves. That means the staff will make sure everyone gets a personalized lesson, and we can even change the speed of the cables depending on the experience of our skiers. I'm hoping we get at least 20 for the event, so this will also be cross-posted with the Outsiders and the Get Out of the House groups.  The price per person will be between $19 and $25 (likely even less), depending on the number of people we have RSVP. With at least 17 people, we will have the park to ourselves for two hours so we'll get plenty of runs, plenty of exercise, and have lots of fun. The instruction will begin promptly at 4:00, although later arrivals can get lessons too.

The rates mentioned above will include all equipment (safety helmet, life vests, water skies, etc.) included. Please be sure to bring sunscreen, a towel, water shoes (highly recommended) and, if you like, a change of clothes for dinner (there is a cold water shower on site).

If you don't want to ski, please come out anyway... You only pay if you ski, and there will be some great people watching!

After the fun, I hope you'll join us for a dinner nearby.

    Hi :)
    My number is[masked]-3596. I am wondering if calling or texting would make it easier to find each other or the group. I haven't visited this park before. I don't know my way around.

      I've seen them at Publix & Wal-mart for about $8. Good to have for various water related activities

    I am going to reschedule this for next Sunday... Unfortunately I can't control the weather.

    The park has been open and closed much of the day due to lighting. The lighting may stop, but the rain and clouds will hurt our attendance. So let's pick a better day.

    Let's try for next Sunday.

    Everyone... please check here a few minutes after 2:00. The weather radar isn't looking promising for later this afternoon. If the storms out west don't break up some, we'll try this again next weekend....

    Hey everyone, it looks like we should have a great day for this. Here's a couple of quick pointers for you to consider:

    - All you really need is a bathing suit and some sunscreen. They will provide everything else. - I encourage you to bring your pool/water shoes instead of flip/flops, but that is personal preference. - I think it's $1.50 to enter the park, and they $20 for two hours of skiing / wakeboarding (normal rate if $30).

    - Bring a fun attitude and a willingness to try something new.

    Anyone interested in car pooling?
    I'm over in Hallandale Beach.
    I can drive or tag along and pitch in for gas.
