The cable loop has 5 wheels & can take 9 water skiers.
The lake is a North-West - South-East oblong.
Some jumps on the main circuit looking North East, a few
people used some, most used none).
A beginner making a return trip on the small beginners run.
Looking North East
Everyone who falls off & walks back barefoot along the
beach winces at the round stones underfoot.
- They could put a narrow sand path there. A small
investment on price paid.
- Knee boards, people coould wear old trainers/ tennis
- Wake boards, I guess any surf board shoe would do.
- Water skis might be hardest to solve. Maybe [older?] (ie
plain slim plastic/rubber) style wind surf shoes might fit in
water ski mounts (but the newer / more expensive sort with
black neoprene up leg, & high friction coeffecient light
blue rubber soles that run above heel & toe would not
work I guess). Not many used water skis on beginners run
though. Mostly it was wake boards, & next was knee board
There's a big beach bar (Roberto Beach) on the North
East corner. Where all the shiney metal concrete building is.
Lots of beach (ie sand) volley- ball courts there.
The power wheel, that pulls the cable round, also with a
small up & down loop to load tow ropes for water
This pic was taken by puting a mobile phone camera behind
Looking North North East
There's various other things nearby, a high rope / cable
garden, tennis courts, stock ice or whatever, ice hockey in
winter or something similar ([Aschheim?] "Jets").

Easier to start with a kneeboard Says Sheffield as lower
centre of gravity. (But they don't mention any shock/ accident
strain is then direct on spine, not through nice big multi
jointed muscle sprung shock absorbers evolution kindly
