AUSTIN, TX. – There are many cool things to love about Austin Texas including the world class music scene, art, culture and things to do but what about surfing? Yes, Austin will soon have its own wave park called NLand Surf Park that will be opening this spring and it will feature 160 acres of surfing paradise, a 13 acre lagoon as well plus tons of other cool stuff like retail, lodging, food and a top notch surf school.
“The Greenest Surf Park in the World”
In their recent press release CEO Kenan “Keno” Knieriem Jr. said that his goal wasn’t just to build the biggest surf park in the world but also the greenest surf park and an attraction that Texas would truly be proud of.
Without a doubt he’s accomplished his goal and then some plus NLand Surf Park will also give locals the opportunity to work on their surfing skills throughout the year without having to drive miles away to the beach.
2 Long Years in Development
The project has been more than two years in the making, as the Honokea team relocated from Hawaii to Austin in 2014 to begin working with the Wavegarden team and the Coors family to select the site, plan construction, and work with the community.
“They personally connected with Austin’s legislature and leaders in sustainability and conservation to blend Austin’s cultural and community standards into the surf park,” reads a press release distributed by Honokea today. “Together, they came up with a surf real estate development that is environmentally friendly, great for families and is a model that can be scaled over time and integrated in other cities.”
