North America's first Wavegarden opens October 7, 2016
NLand Surf Park opens its doors on October 7, 2016 in Austin, Texas. It's centerpiece, a 14-acre Wavegarden lagoon filled with 100% rain water collected on the property, is set in a beautiful natural landscape only 10 minutes East of Austin's airport.
"As a surfer and an engineer, NLand has been a dream of mine for the past 20 years,” said Doug Coors, NLand's founder. “We had our share of challenges, but they are behind us and I look forward to sharing our waves with the world."
The lagoon features waves for surfers of all levels: from head high, open face waves with a 35-second ride tailor-made for performance surfing; challenging open face waves for passionate novices; to gentle white water waves for beginners and children.
The diverse range of waves available throughout the lagoon fulfills the requirements of NLand’s full spectrum of guests. And overcrowding is not an issue as the park can safely cater for 120 or more surfers at any one time, in the different skill-based surf zones.
“The launch of our second Wavegarden facility is a historical moment for our company,” explained Josema Odriozola, Wavegarden's CEO. “Together, we have scaled this project up to a level never before seen."
The long anticipated opening of NLand coincides with the one-year anniversary of Surf Snowdonia, which, since its opening has produced around 195.000 waves. The accumulated length of these waves equates to a distance of 30.000 km (18.600 miles), which is three quarters the circumference of the earth.
During the warm-up period, NLand will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m, and on Mondays from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. For bookings & more information, go to: http://www.nlandsurfpark.com
