You’re probably familiar with the fact that Shane Beschen is a pro surfer, but what you probably didn’t know is that he and his crew are helping City Wave enter the US market with a revolutionary new surfing pool system … one that might just so happen to be coming to the 904.

The new wave pool system is a patented design that has a smaller footprint, is more portable (or permanent) and features deeper water, allowing the user to ride on actual surfboards with fins … unlike that flow-rider bulls***. Jacksonville is on the hot list for a new location along with other major cities in Florida, such as Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Cocoa Beach.

We can bring you this exclusive news thanks to the fact that Beschen and crew happened to stop by our office and have a little chat with us about their idea, which is to bring multiple wave pools to Florida.
