20 Years in the making

Doug Coors, a surfer and the prime engineer behind the project, has been planning this Texas surf park for over 20 years. This surfing park finally became a reality when he partnered with Spanish engineering firm Wavegarden to leverage their wave lagoon technology.

The Perfect Wave

The surf park is actually a lagoon pool roughly the length of nine football fields and featuring different levels of waves. For avid surfers, there are head-high waves with a 35-second ride, and for beginners, there are gentler waves.
