Wet and Wild Wakeboarding
Hang on, because our landlocked valley is about to get wet and wild! Kodi and Victor Imondi plan to open the Rocky Mountain region’s first full-size cable wakeboard park in May of 2018. Imondi Wake Zone will be located on a 30-acre lake off of 16 Road in Fruita. The Imondis are “super excited” to share their lifelong passion for wakeboarding with the community, and to give water lovers another way to beat the Grand Valley’s summer heat.
Modeled after waterskiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques, wakeboarding is a water sport that uses a thin, rectangular board mounted with shoe-like bindings. The great news is, no boat is required. The Imondi’s five-tower cable system will pull up to seven wakeboarders in a counterclockwise circuit, offering jumps over obstacles and ride rails. Beginners can try out the sport individually on a two-tower system.
The wakeboard park will also have a pro shop for supplies, rentals, and lessons. Future plans may include inflatable water features, sand volleyball, adaptive water sports, and a stage for live music. For more information, visit imondiwakezone.com and wakeboardcolorado.com.
