Why a Surf Spot?
For more than 35 million people, surfing has become a metaphor for living a healthy lifestyle and being in tune with nature’s rhythms. Surfing is ranked in the top 20 most popular and fastest growing sports in all countries, cultures and demographics. The surfing industry, with an economic impact in the range of US$100 billion, is estimated to continue it’s growth in the years to come. The ‘stoke’, or feeling, of surfing, which has been limited to the lucky few who live near quality surf, is now accessible to everyone.
Surfing is also a spectator sport that attracts large groups of onlookers at every surf spot or competition, people who are mesmerized by the breaking waves and the abilities of the surfers who seem to walk on water as they ride them. In Wavegarden the viewing experience is vastly improved as the uncertainty of many factors of the open ocean are removed, allowing innovative and unique surf competitions and high performance training.
It is undeniable and well documented that regions lucky enough to be blessed with a good surf break are cashing in on the economic gains that surfing brings to them. Along with the waves comes a seemingly endless influx of people to play in them: surfers, swimmers, spectators, surf schools, and surf competitions. Local economies are thriving with surfing’s increased popularity. Accommodation, retail shops, and restaurants that provide the infrastructure for booming surf-related economies are reaping the financial rewards from this significant increase in visitors!
We help our customers create new surf destinations wherever they want and ride the wave of this very lucrative sport and lifestyle business opportunity.
