US gets first surf park in Austin Texas, led by Doug Coors of the Coors brewing family

Plans have been revealed for a massive surf park development in Austin, Texas, with the first waves set to break at the facility in 2016. The development will be the first in North America.

The developer behind the project is NLand Surf Park, led by founder and CEO Doug Coors of the Coors brewing family and backed by Colorado-based 9th Street Capital.

The 12-acre (48,500sq m) wave pool will be divided into 11 different areas to cater for surfers of varying abilities.

Permits have been filed by NLand Surf Park for a 160-acre (647,500sq m) site with multiple attractions close to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The architect has not yet been named.

The new wavepark will use Spanish engineering firm Wavegarden’s technology – the first application of which will be at Wales’ Surf Snowdonia – the planned lagoon will create 300 consistent waves an hour up to a height of 6ft (1.8m) for surfers.

The park will be self-sustaining, using rainwater to help maintain water levels during the dry season.

Ancillary facilities will include a surf school, retail, restaurants and bars and changing facilities with the aim of creating an après surf scene.
