SURF PARK CENTRAL was founded in the Spring of 2012 with the simple intention of creating a comprehensive hub for news and information about surf parks, wave pools, and wave technology around the world.
In September of 2013 we hosted the first annual Surf Park Summit in Laguna Beach, CA. Get an idea of what Surf Park Central and Surf Park Summit are all about – watch the highlight reel from our first event:
Since the Summit we’ve cemented ourselves as THE go-to resource for all surf park news and information, with a growing loyal network of 160,000+ followers. Our readers and contributors consist of action sports enthusiasts, professional surfers, entrepreneurs, wave technology providers, developers and investors the world around.
We’re 100% confident that surf parks and surfing wave pools will be a rapidly emerging market with incredible potential in the coming years. One of our top priorities is to keep our audience on the leading edge of this new industry with all the latest developments in the wave technology and surf destination development realm. It is our vision and primary goal to help accelerate the advancement of wave technology and to see the sport of surfing grow in global recognition, and perhaps become an Olympic Sport within the next decade.
