The Greene Waters Group of Bridge Real Estate have announced plans for an artificial wave pool at The Endless Summer Resort. The 400 unit resort will be centered around a four-acre PerfectSwell® surf pool that creates an infinite variety of customizable waves using technology created by American Wave Machines.
"American Wave Machines has advanced technology to a point where they make consistent waves with an infinite variety," said Surf City Hui, LLC co-founder Chad Waters." At The Endless Summer Resort, we will be able to create a surfing experience that removes the fear for beginners and in some cases, exceeds the real thing for expert surfers."
"Our overriding design philosophy was to create surf, the dynamics of the ocean at the beach, not just individual waves. We’ve accomplished that with PerfectSwell®" addedd Bruce McFarland, Founder and President of American Wave Machines, "The iconic concept put forth by Surf City HUI aligns with our vision for premium surf destinations."
Surf City Hui will be interviewing potential operators and contractors during the next few months, and anticipate the resort opening by the summer of 2017.
