Dun Laoghaire Library is the newest wakeboard venue in Ireland, according to pro boarder David O'Caoimh. The Killiney man turned the fancy South Dublin amenity into Ireland's wakeboarding cable park in February and captured it on video below.

 

The Dun Laoghaire Library/ Lexicon cost the Irish Tax Payer 36.6 million, and led to a lot of controversy!I never thought I would get any value from it as a tax payer, until today when I realised I could go wakeboarding there. Thanks to the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council for building such great Wakeboarding spots!

The champion boarder rigged up his own electrically–driven cable tow rope, and got right to it, in the library's new water feature!

But the water may have been too cold for O'Caoimh. The Irish champion has since moved on to to an adventure at Xtreme-gene in Spain, where the 'lake is like glass' and probably a lot warmer too.

'Man, It Feels Good to be Back Shredding' , he told friends on social media and posted this video below.
