1. Location


Feldkirchen is 20 minutes northwest from Linz (Austria’s biggest city after capital Vienna).

The recreation area, which is spread around five swimming lakes in Feldkirchen next to the Danube, has a magnetic effect on thousands of sun-bathers during the summer. In 2000 the company jetlake built the necessary infrastructure to transform the facility around the cable-lake to a communications hot spot for all sport freaks. The Austrian Wakeboard scene received new and unique impacts. The cable-facility represents a wonderful platform for training as well as international contests.



Jetlake, well known after the last two years, is situated on a lake in a beautiful green landscape next to the river Danube. It’s a Rixen cableway 4 mast system. New Height 10.1 Meters to 10.4 Meters.
