North America's largest surf park planned for Austin, Texas
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 June, 2015 - Austin, Texas looks like it will be getting a tremendous surf park, the largest in North America, with plans putting its opening at 2018.
Doug Coors, founder and CEO of NLand Surf Park, part of the Coors Brewing family, intends to build the park after a decade-and-a-half-long search to find the ideal technology.
Austin's KXAN reports the park will be around nine football fields in size, with more than 10 individual surfing sections, and wave levels for surfers of all skill levels.
Coors looked to the Spain's Wavegarden for inspiration, building upon the design by proposing ways to become self-sustaining via rainwater.
A press conference is scheduled for Thursday. More to come.
