Well, we should have seen this coming. 

With the Wave Pool arms race heating up to near fever pitch, of course the Founder’s Cup was going to see some attempted show stealing. 

Today, just hours after the first heats hit the water, Jamie O’Brien and the folks at BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas, dropped more than shade on the Founder’s Cup parade: a clip  featuring a hollow, heaving right hand pit of undeterminable size, similar in style to Kelly’s Lemoore marvel.  

According to the site, visiting the park will run you a breezy $60/hr, or $100 a day, with private cabanas available at $250, including table service. 

Interested? BSR encourages you to give them a call at (254) 227-6388, which is just such a welcome dose of transparency. 

Speaking of which, here’s American Wave Machines’ press release on the subject: 

American Wave Machines, Inc. (AWM), announces the company is on contract for what will be one of the largest inland surfing and watersports facilities in the country at BSR Cable Park and Resort near Waco, Texas. Ranked #1 Cable Park in the US, the resort features cabins, a cable park and the BSR Super Slide – Royal Flush. AWM is teaming up with BSR to create a 2 acre surf lake incorporating PerfectSwell® Infinite Ocean™ design and surf generating technology. With PerfectSwell contract fulfillment already underway in Russia and New Jersey this will be the largest system produced by AWM to date. Plans include the addition of big cabins for accommodations, a full service surf shop, and BSR’s signature bar and restaurant.

“Stuart Parsons is the right guy in the right place at the right time. What he’s created at BSR is amazing, he’s a visionary guy. ” said Bruce McFarland, President of AWM, “This is an operating ranch. I saw more wildlife in 4 hours at BSR than I’ve seen in years of hiking and mountain biking. My whole team is totally stoked to work with the folks at BSR.”
“I did my research and American Wave Machines came out on top. They’ve been installing all kinds of wave systems all over the world for the last 10 years with a 100% track record. ” said Stuart Parsons, “I like that PerfectSwell can create an infinite variety of waves appealing to surfers of all levels, and no need for special pool bottom contours. My team can build this. We’re ready to start digging.”

Getting ready for Waco, pro surfers Jamie O’Brien and Cheyne Magnusson, seen here, have already started working in the AWM lab programming waves that almost defy the imagination. “I feel like we’re going to be getting so many good waves we’re going to be overloaded…” said Jamie O’Brien.
