Fortune Magazine: The Future of Surf Parks

In a freshly released Fortune Magazine article, senior editor-at-large Shawn Tully sits down with Body Glove CEO Robbie Meistrell to discuss the future of surf parks and the surfing industry.

Visitors can experience indoor skiing, indoor skydiving, spin on a giant Ferris wheel offering views of the New York skyline, and catch the curls on their surfboards, all in the same gargantuan complex opposite MetLife Stadium. That’s fast company. If indoor surfing proves a sensation in New Jersey and Sochi, it’s reached the big time.”
