Indoor surfing

« on: October 31 2007 07:10:00 »

Aloha guys,

I need some opinions from u concerning an indoor surf park.
What do u think about an indoor surf park in central Europe? I mean not this shitty parks with the standing waves!
I think of an indoor surfpool where you get different kind of waves due to the newly available technique that can adjust the pool floor to imitate different kind of reefs and a wave machine that can adjust the hight and frequence of the waves up to 10 feet waves!
Furthermore the park would include training pools, beginner pools, surfshops and restaurants.
Would be cool if I get some replies, need them for a school project.
THX in advanced!

Aloha and Hang Loose

You would lose your @ss.  The maintenance costs would be so high, you would have to charge a premium price to break even, let alone make a profit.  Nice idea, but the economics just aren't there.  The Japanese tried that with indoor skiing (closed now, I believe) and indoor wave pools (limited surfing opportunities) and it is not a cheap date, the atmospherics suck and the Central Europeans probably do not have that type of luxury money in their budgets.
