When life gives us lemons, we’re going to make lemonade. Then we’re going to make lemon meringue pie. Not trying to undermine the massive extent of damage and hardship that this Hurricane has bestowed upon us. It truly has been the most exhausting obstacle that Keys Cable and Otherside Boardsports has ever encountered. In terms of physically, mentally and financially, this storm alllmost wiped us out. But not quite.
17 acres of debris and downed trees have been cleared. Features, docks and operator stands have been rebuilt. The buildings have been dried out, and electric has been completely rerun to our cable systems. Our Sesi-tec cable systems have had a complete overhaul and are running smoother than ever. The garden has been replanted and the back of the property has been rearranged in preparation of stage 3 of Otherside Adventure Park’s plans. We’re happy to say that the pre-storm renovation to the building; new roof and 67 solar panels all held up to their stated hurricane ratings. The solar panels were connected to the grid in February which makes us one step closer to our carbon neutral goals. The building also received a little aesthetic upgrade, in the form of a 40ft tall Flamingo mural by Miami based nature artist, Dave L.
The sun is shining, the water is warm, and we have wakeboard coaches that love to teach wakeboarding! Whether its your first time, or your first invert, we can make it happen! We’re never going to stop working to make this once-derelict-and-abandoned property something beautiful in the heart of the Keys with something for everyone to enjoy. Come on down and be part of this process- the making of our Lemon Meringue Pie for all to enjoy. We’re ready for you 🙂
