Construction Company Chosen for Sustainable Surf Park

After the initial fill, NLand Surf Park's lagoon will be 100 percent sustainable with rainwater, even in drought conditions, according to the companies involved.

White Construction Company announced it has been chosen to lead construction of the first inland surf park in North America, which will be located in Austin, Texas, near Austin Bergstrom International Airport. The company's announcement said the NLand Surf Park "will bring the ocean to Central Texas in a lagoon roughly the size of nine football fields with one-foot, four-foot, and six-foot perfectly tubing waves every 60 seconds.

The Austin-based construction company's principal offices are in Austin, Houston, and Ridgeland, Miss.

"White Construction is proud to be part of a team of architects, engineers, and visionaries to create a unique experience for people to enjoy," CEO Neel White said. "We are ideally suited for sustainable, complex projects like the NLand Surf Park."

The 160-acre park is scheduled for completion in 2016. Founded by Doug Coors, an engineer and a surfer, it will be the only inland surfing destination of its kind in North America for surfers and wave sport enthusiasts and will feature 11 surfing areas with four surfing levels ranging from beginner to professional. After the initial fill, the lagoon will be 100 percent sustainable with rainwater, even in drought conditions, according to the companies.

"We believe White Construction Company is a key component to bringing our vision to life," said Coors, CEO of NLand Surf Park. "Not only does the company have a proven track record of bringing in complex projects on time, but it runs toward solutions rather than away from problems. With a unique project of this magnitude, this approach will be very important."
