Thailand To Host ‘20 Cable Wakeboard Worlds

The IWWF Executive Board has approved a bid from the Thailand Extreme Sports Association (TESA) to host the 2020 IWWF Cable Wakeboard World Championships, Sept. 14-20, at ESC Thai Wake Park near Bangkok.

“We are very excited to host the 2020 IWWF World Cable Wakeboard Championships at ESC Thai Wake Park and welcome the best cable riders from all over the world to visit Thailand next September,” said TESA President, Mr. Piti Bhirombhakdi.

ESC Thai Wake Park is a collaboration project between ESC, a real estate developer, and Thai Wake Park (TWP). It features a main anti-clockwise 5-tower Rixen cableway, a Rixen Little Bro training cableway, more than 12 full plastic features and night riding. The park is located in the Rangsit area, only 40 minutes from the center of Bangkok, 30-minutes from Don Mueang International Airport and 60 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

“I am very pleased that Thailand, one of the most popular destinations for cable wakeboarding, will host its first IWWF world-titled event and believe TESA will be excellent hosts for the world's best cable riders,” said IWWF President, Jose Antonio Perez Priego.

Construction on ESC Thai Wake Park began in September 2018. It had its soft opening at the end of August 2019 and is now fully-operational with riders hitting the water daily.
 
In addition to a cable wake park, with its 800,000 square meters of land, the project will consist of a golf driving range, onsite accommodation, a convention room (estimated completion February 2020), a variety of restaurants (estimated completion May 2020) and a pre-existing shooting studio. The next phase of the project will consist of a mini-skate park, fitness center and a football field (estimated completion 2021).
