1. People

Ensuring healthy living and promoting well-being in all age groups is essential for the sustainable development of society. The sporting activity on the water at our wakeboard facility, in the fresh air integrated into a green landscape trains and improves the immune system and demonstrably reduces health complaints.

Children and young people can discover their passion for water sports in a RIXEN cable park. A great opportunity opens up for them: away from the mobile phone, towards more exercise in a safe environment. They get the motivation to learn how to swim. Equal and quality education is thus ensured. We create awareness for the valuable asset of water through sport and fun: edutainment (education + entertainment).

Wakeboarding promotes gender equality. Women love the sport because it combines elegance and ease with an action sport. Women and men have the same opportunities to practice the sport at a professional level. Our partner, the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation, awards the same prize money in competitions for men and women, which is not a given in many other sports.

Wakeboarding is particularly beginner-friendly and can be learned in less than 30 minutes. It can be practiced by anyone of any age and with any kind of ability or handicap. We have democratised the sport, made it accessible to all population groups and evened out inequalities. RIXEN has stood for “Wakeboarding for All” since 1961.

The challenge of urbanisation is steadily increasing in many regions. A RIXEN cable park offers people a regional and family-friendly destination. In cities and conurbations, it is a safe meeting place and recreation area for all age groups. Here, a sustainably strong community is formed that enjoys outdoor sports

Through our extensive network, we give you access to many years of operational experience and the know-how of our customers. We promote cooperation between stakeholders as well as associations at nationally and internationally recognised championships. We stand for sports venues with a 0-emssion approach. Our goal is to inspire more and more people for this wonderful sport and its social and sustainable benefits.

2. Planet

Several scientific studies have proven that the water quality in waters with a RIXEN cable park has improved significantly due to the high oxygen input from the riders. Moreover, due to the electric drive of the installation, the water is not polluted with fuels. A study at Lake Salzgitter showed that the coli bacteria to be detected were reduced to an average of 0.2% of the original contamination and thus the number of germs was no longer in the measurable range.

The constant spraying of the water at the wakeboard facility ensures a constant influx of oxygen. This considerable improvement in oxygen levels in the water promotes fish growth, among other things, and means that cableways are comparable to artificial aeration. Biologically endangered lakes thus have the chance to regenerate.

Conventional water skiing behind a motorboat is limited to one person at a time and consumes a lot of fuel. The RIXEN Full Size Cable can pull up to 17 people at a time. The small electric motor emits zero CO2 on site, so there is no climate-damaging impact. Our system integrates unobtrusively into the landscape. Noise is avoided thanks to the low-noise drive.

Every country on every continent is struggling with climate change. Cable wakeboarding is the most efficient and environmentally friendly way to practise the sport. In addition, a water ski facility is suitable as a sensible renaturation measure and for the long-term reuse of the spoil areas needed for the extraction of gravel products.

3. Prosperity

As a sports, leisure and tourism attraction, the RIXEN cable park attracts many people, which contributes to a long-term increase in the economic viability of the region and additionally to the creation of green jobs. Further sports offers around the Full Size Cable or the settlement of hotels and restaurants can create a high synergy effect. Our cable park revitalizes existing tourist areas or creates a completely new hotspot.

Technological advances such as “Emobility on water” form the basis for achieving environmental goals such as improved resource and energy efficiency. Investing in sustainable infrastructure is critical to sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries. Since 1961, RIXEN has guided clients to success and multiple generations can benefit from the investment.
