Terminus Wake Park at LakePoint lets you try out an extreme sport while staying comfortingly close to land. You wakeboard using a cable system here, which cuts out the need for a boat. Newbies get step-by-step instruction before setting foot on the water, with all equipment available to rent on-site. No experience is required; our tester was able to pick it up after a few pulls down the beginner lake. Feeling up to Mountain Dew ad tricks? Check out the park’s two more challenging lakes with ramps and rails. 130 Old Allatoona Road, Cartersville, terminuswakepark.com
