    Link: Wakeboarding Upstream In Slovenia - I guess when you don`t have access to waves, you have to get creative.

    Uh, Fancy... you don`t use a WAKEboard with WAVES.

    A boat makes a wake. Perhaps they don`t have access to a boat.

    My question is, what`s pulling them? There`s no way a rope can fit in some of those areas, let alone weave it`s way....


    i`m thinking retractable rope somewhere, right?

    @jacos27- I think it`s some kind of suspended rigging above the riders. Look at 3:13 in the background. I bet the courses are short, but some edits and slow-mo make for cool effects. My concern is the rocks if they mess up.
