For a cable style though wouldn't the pulley need to be suspended from above.

I am still in disbelief that I created this.

Robby is a tech genius, but lets face it he builds custom elevators. (just put one on the San fran Bridge) so if there was a guy out there who could build my dream it was him.

We have it setup to run right now as follows.



Spool out line 1 (yellow in picture inside the frame)

Cross the water, attach pulley to webbing. Attach bungee chord to tree and webbing to tree. (bungee chord is the same stuff they use to make a bungee snowboard device) Pull line back to winch.

Attach outer spool line (blue)

Hang both yellow and blue to near winch side tree. with webbing and the bungee.

Now the issue is because you have two variable diameters in the winch while the lines are changing from unspooled to spooled there is a slack that is inevitable.

The unspooled first line is reeling in 42in per rotation while the outer spool is feeding out 47-9 inches per rotation giving you a total of about 7ft of slack ( OVER A 600FT AREA) that you have to pull out.

Que the bungee.

If the pulley is 10 foot off the tree with a strap, then attaching the bungee to pull it back to 5ft when that line is not under load removes the slack from the feeding line.

when you turn around the other bungee picks up the reverse slack


I will have video of it in action soon.


I said a 2.0 could be build for under 5 grand. Its a reality.

First cable park in TN is in my yard. I have some weeds in the lake that i have to move but I should have my rails setup and everything by next week.

I took it to a spot yesterday to test, took 45 mins to rig (given this was the first time I have ever had made it work) at a random spot with two trees.

How many spots have trees that we use for pulleys ya know?

No need for towers, use Trees!

No need for cable armsteel is plenty substantial!

I got 5 figure 8 turn arounds pulled before it was dark. Its alive dudes.

Now to name the system!


Boodog Black Lab.

Boodog Golden Retriever.

Boodog YardDog.

throw out some if you got it

cant call it a system2 i bet ze germans would not like lol


im so stoaked on wakeskating this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
