Surf Parks Take Over IAAPA 2013

Last week the SPC team traveled to Orlando, Florida for the 2013 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo. The packed expo floor hosted over 522,000 square feet of exhibit space, more than 1,100 exhibiting companies and an incredible number of flashing lights… far from underwhelming.

Not surprising this year was the number of surf park and wave pool tech companies that peppered the expo floor. Amidst the melee, we had a chance to catch up with them to learn more about their products and upcoming projects. Following is a quick glance at each of the wave tech companies in attendance:

Murphy’s Waves Ltd.

Our friends at Murphy’s are staying busy. In addition to working on two projects in China and one in Malaysia this year, the team has also released an inflatable sheet wave design, among other products.
