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 stopped by after passing by and Nate took the time to explain the different options available and was very flexible in scheduling our family. As there were three of us riding and none... More

Our kids are 5 and 7. They have never skied nor wake-boarded before. Jerry and Nate were my kid's instructors and they were outstanding. Both kids were up and riding on the first pass! Most places in the USA would never let a (barely) five-year old ride let alone teach them to ride. Do yourself a favor and take your... More

We have watched this property evolve over the past decade and were excited to see Keys Cable come to the neighborhood. The property looks better than it ever has and they offer family friendly fun that is hard to find in the Keys. The cable system is amazingly quiet - no boat motor noise. My son is visiting this week... More

Never wakeboarded before (wife had) and was up riding in no time. Quick check in to get started, had a blast. Really friendly and helpful staff. You can rinse and clean up afterwards and hang out watching other participants while you dry off. Don't miss this!!

I was staying across the street at the Jolly Roger and saw the cable park on the way in. I called in the morning to inquire about prices and Nate answered the phone. Right off the bat he was as polite and professional and got me stoked for my first cable session. I simply walked across the street and was... More

I'm an "OG" (Old Guy) who likes to play young every once and a while and had a blast at Keys Cable. I've wakeboarded a few times years ago and Matt, the owner, had me ripping switch and hitting the jump within a few minutes. My wife, who's never wakeboarded in her life stood up the first time and was... More

My 16 y.o. son & 11 y.o. daughter were eager to try wakeboarding for the first time. Keys Cable turned out to be an excellent place for them to learn. The staff is WONDERFUL. They were able to get both kids up and having fun almost immediately. With their cable control and knowledgeable coaching, staff helped both improve quickly. The... More

I had never wake-boarded before visiting Keys Cable so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have been water and snow skiing though.
