O-dub, aka OWC, aka "the cable"
The Orlando Watersports Complex is a unique watersports park designed for wakeboarding, wakeskating, kneeboarding and waterskiing. Now 13 years old, OWC has established itself as the premiere locale for riders of all levels throughout the globe. From beginning riders just wanting to try the sport for recreation, to the professional wakeboarders and skiers from all over the world, OWC caters to all.
The most beneficial aspect of the park is the immense amount of time you can spend on the water. OWC is the only facility in the United States to have two cableways; our beginner/intermediate cable park and our slider park. The cableways allow for unlimited riding time to improve the foundation skills for wakeboarding, wakeskating and skiing. We are constantly changing and improving our sliders - making OWC the premiere slider park in the world.
In addition to the cableways, OWC is a great place to train behind the best towboats in the industry with three Nautique boats available for sessions everyday and our renowned professional coaching staff. Riders and skiers of all skill levels are welcome.

This Cablesite can be used for slalom skiing, kneeboarding, wakeboarding, trick skiing, or just skiing with 2 skis. It contains a full size, competion standard, six-buoy slalom course. Our highly motivated staff will teach everybody from beginner to advanced to get better on skis.
