ORLANDO, FL (April 26, 2016) – Aktion Parks announced the return of slalom skiing to the Orlando Watersports Complex (OWC) boat lake partnering with hall of famer and water ski legend, Wade Cox.
This partnership will allow skiers the opportunity to train with Cox behind the industry leading Ski Nautique 200 on a brand new slalom course. OWC’s long history of waterskiing and its centralized location paired with Cox’s unique coaching style will provide skiers the convenience of professional instruction at a quality site just minutes from the airport and other Orlando landmarks.
One of the most successful slalom skiers of his era, Wade Cox’s legendary career boasts 47 professional slalom victories including three Masters’ championships and a former U.S. national slalom record.
Wade Cox commented, “I have many great memories skiing at OWC during my professional career, including a crazy runoff with Andy Mapple, which makes this partnership that much more special for me.” “I’m super excited to share my passion and knowledge of the sport behind the wheel of the best slalom boat on the market – the Ski Nautique 200,” Cox added.
Coaching sessions will be available Tuesday through Friday from 8am to noon, or by appointment. A 30-minute coaching session with Cox will cost $80 and can be booked online at www.aktionparks.com/ski or by calling OWC at 407-251-3100.

First of all- why am I writing this and what business do I have doing so? I first ran the course in 2004 and did not run -28 at max speed (55K) until October of 2014, and not consistently until last summer. Over 10 years of skiing long lines and chasing my tail! In one summer I did more as far as getting to another level with my skiing than I had in all of those previous years combined. I did this not because of a focus on technique, but because of a focus on my mental game.
Couple of baseline rules to set baseline expectations before we begin:
