Wakeboarding Park

Red Rock Wake Park

I have been hearing some great things about St. George's new wakeboarding park. At a barbecue last night I spoke to someone who has enjoyed the new park several times. It sounds like a fun place to check out and I am happy to see there is a beginner cable in addition to an advanced cable because I don't know how to wakeboard.
