LOS ANGELES, California/USA (Thursday, May 30, 2019) - The WSL is disappointed to confirm our decision to cancel the development of the wave basin planned for West Palm Beach, Florida.
The nature of this site, including the extremely high water table, exposed unforeseen challenges that made the decision around this unique project clear. These projects are complex and in many ways without precedent, and we have learned important lessons in this process.
We're deeply appreciative of the support and enthusiasm we've had from the local community and look forward to maintaining strong relationships with Florida, and in particular the Florida surfing community, for years to come.
We are moving ahead with several other locations for wave systems powered by Kelly Slater Wave Technology, and remain committed and very excited about what this technology will mean for the future of surfing.
