Coming Soon: Wave Pools In The Swell Deficient Hawaiian Islands
Completely booked for summer, closed for the winter.
Surf Lakes International has just signed an Exclusive Territory Agreement to open four wave pools in Hawaii over the next eight years.
The company plans to build parks across all major Hawaiian Islands, starting with either Maui or Oahu. This plan is perfect because neither of those places ever really get sizable surf. In fact, Maui and Oahu are known for lack of oceanic activity (in the summer at least), so this should help locals catch more waves.
According to Peter Savio, the new owner of Hawaii Surf Lakes LLC, “This is one of the most exciting wave-making programs I have ever seen. I intend to utilize only sustainable options in every aspect of design and will join with a native Hawaiian Cultural Center… I have been working with native cultural practitioners.”
I know very little about native Hawaiian culture, but I’m excited to learn how the construction of 4 artificial wave plungers ties into the Islands’ ancient roots.
If you need me, I’ll be standing next to the office water cooler, trying to sell bottles of Dasani to my co-workers.
