Lisa Tomasek is not only a pro on the board, she also works at Turncable Wakepark, where she looks after the visitors at the launch platform, explains how the facility and equipment work, and operates the lift that pulls the wakeboarders around the obstacle course. She has her hands full ensuring that every visitor – from beginner to expert – is well taken care of.
The installation was developed, built and opened to the public in 2008 by the manufacturer Sesitec in partnership with Siemens Solution Partner Frey. It’s one of only a handful of facilities in Germany that offer both a clockwise and counterclockwise-turning lift. The electric cable system is built at a height of around nine meters, and a carrier pulls the tow line at a high angle to allow the wakeboarder to make jumps and other spectacular maneuvers. That’s why this park has become something of a hotspot in the wakeboarding scene over the past few years. Almost every day, real pros come to show some breathtaking jumps and tricks on the ramps and other challenging obstacles here.
