Are you ready to shred the gnar?

That’s right, inland surf fanatics. This Friday, October 7th, NLand Surf Park is bringing some sick waves to Austin, Texas.

Yup, that’s in a wave pool. Er, as they’d like to call it, America’s first “Surf Park.”

The park was supposed to have opened this past summer, but ran into some regulatory issues concerning health and safety requirements that apply to pools in the city limits.

No need to fear! After lengthy talks with county and state officials, NLand Surf Park and Austin have reached an agreement that will allow the park to open this Friday.


Now the only thing we have to worry about is: are you ready to shred?

That dude certainly is.

In addition to that awesome pier, the “park” will feature waves for expert, intermediate, beginner, and kid surfers along with restaurants and a gear shop.

Apparently, the pool is the length of nine football fields (NINE!) and features 11 different surfing areas.

Plus, the park is self-sustaining using rainwater — which NLand claims will hold up even in a massive drought. To that we say, “Chyeah bruh!”

Time to hang loose and get ourselves over to Austin!
