Islamorada’s adrenaline water sports pros Otherside Boardsports...

Islamorada’s adrenaline water sports pros Otherside Boardsports haverecently opened Keys Cable and the Otherside Adventure Park. Keys Cable is a new watersports cable park where adventure sports enthusiasts and curious newcomers alike can safely and cost effectivelyparticipate in wakeboarding, wakeskating, waterskiing, kiteboarding and Stand Up Paddleboarding.Located on the ocean side at mile marker 59 on Grassy Key, Keys Cable has two 2-tower cable systems that are independently operated atop of a seven acre tidal lake. Keys Cable notes itself as the first cable park in the world to offer full kiteboarding instruction with most cable operators being kiteboarding instructors themselves.The park’s independently controlled systems give the operator the ability to create a fully customized ride, with the fastest possible rate of progression due to the 1:1 rider:operator Ratio. More cost-effective than running a boat or jet ski, Keys Cable offers cable time rates beginning at $22 for half an hour or $32 for an hour as well as two-hour, half day, full day, monthly, seasonal and annual passes. Planning a birthday party or have a large group looking to maximize your time?

We reserved the beginner cable for one hour for 3 of us (ages 16, 21 and 57) who had never wakeboarded before, although one is an experienced snowboarder and skateboarder and one had done their kiteboarding cable lesson before. Jerry was great at getting us going and we all got up immediately. The two boys were hitting the kicker (small... More

The Keys are all about the water, right? When traveling without a boat [or too lazy to drop it in the water on the 'iffy' days] now there is a cool place to make some turns. We have been coming since they opened a few years ago and they just keep getting better and better. And if you want to... More

We had a two hour private session and I would highly recommend Keys Cable. The instruction was first class, our first timers were up wake boarding immediately, and the intermediates folks were also helped. All the people at Keys Cable were really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful Certainly go again

Keys Cable is a great place to learn and train on getting on the board for kiteboarding. In less than an hour I learned and mastered more that I had done before with many hours of traditional lessons. Matt was great. He is a passionate and very didactic teacher. I Thanks Matt!!!

Our son and all of his friends love riding and surprised themselves by learning so quickly with the amazing instructors, definitely a "must-do" if you're visiting... More

I'm a 43 year old guy who was half expecting to find a bunch of kids running this place and rolling thier eyes at me. Exactly the opposite. I stopped in at closing, they opened early for me the next day, ran the cable for an hour with great advice for me and lots of patience. Even answered all my... More
