ANCHOR ATTRACTIONS

Outdoor Wave Pool

Central to the park is a large outdoor surf pool, producing high quality waves and  catering to a broad range of skill levels.  This attraction can be utilized for events and competitions with ample sponsor advertising opportunities as well as public surf sessions and learn to surf programs.  The pool comes in a variety of sizes to suit any project.

The indoor surf simulator is a key component, especially for colder climate locations as it can be operated as a stand-alone attraction throughout the winter months.  The smaller size also allows for more concentrated skills progression coaching.
