As we see it, the vision is clear: build authentic, sustainable and profitable surf experiences to grow the surf industry and provide the mental, physical and emotional stoke of surfing to those that do not have access to the ocean. To do this, the Summit will gather the industry’s top minds including surf park and surf pool developers, investors, operators, suppliers, academics, experts and athletes to discuss the opportunities and challenges related to the development of man-made surf destinations.
