The Surf Park market is here. John Luff, business development staff at AWM was interviewed about the surf park market and sustainable tourism in a compelling article in Transworld Business seen here. AWM continues to lead the way in the development of surfing beyond the ocean with existing installations around the globe and planned openings in New Hampshire, Montreal, South Dakota, and Sochi, Russia — site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
“Surf Parks are the key to making surfing a mainstream, commercially sustainable sport and to promoting surfing as an iconic lifestyle that transcends all nationalities and cultures.” – John Luff
