Belfast’s first man-made beach will be one of the prime viewing locations when the All Ireland Wakeboarding Championships takes place in the city this weekend.

Based at the Titanic Slipways, a new ‘cable facility’ for one of the world’s fastest growing sports has been erected and will host up to 50 competitors.

Using an electric cable car type apparatus, the wakeboarders are pulled from the slipways across a stretch of Belfast Lough towards the Paint Hall film studio and back.
