1. Ok at first the Spanish engineering team created the concept called Wavegarden
2. And then Doug Coors invested in Wavegarden technology and created NLand Surf Park in Austin, TX
3. Then there was a Pro Surf Contest at the Kelly Slater Surf Ranch near Fresno, California
4. And then BSR (Barefoot Ski Ranch) Near Waco, TX via American Wave Machine Technology Created the Ultimate Surf Park System?
After talking with surfers who have now tried both NLand Surf Park and BSR Surf Resort, the consensus is mutual- the "Waco Wave" is hands down better. So you don't have to wait for one wave at a time every couple of minutes, the new PerfectSwell technology delivers 3 waves set after set and best of all, these sets have more push, the waves are more powerful. But then again some also mentioned that NLand was really nice because it was a longer ride and better for longboarding. The PerfectSwell System however was able to make adjustments from a control booth adding more versatility.
