Back in early October we first brought you the news that Coral Springs based developer, Ocean Sports Development had to build a massive 13 acre Surf Park near to Walt Disney World in a former construction land-fill site close to the Horizon West development in Winter Garden.

Initial plans had been submitted to Orange County, and now requests have been submitted in Orange County on Dec. 11 for a development plan review and change determination related to the development.

Developers are poised to officially announce the project next week, which will also include volleyball courts, pavilion, tiki bars, surf shop and more.

Ocean Sports Developments hold the USA exclusive license to the Webber Wave Pool system invented and patented by Greg Webber.

A peerless surfboard designer, Webber has been setting the world standard for shaping boards since the 1990s. With the Webber Wave Pool, he is now poised to set the global standard for shaping waves as well.

The unique patented Kelvin wave drive mechanism and basin design will deliver the perfect barrel, with numerous wave height and shape variations. Simplicity of design means Ocean Sports Developments can make surf pools in multiple sizes and shape configurations, including round, half-moon, straight, looped linear and rectangular.

The stadium-sized looped linear and rectangular designs generate waves in four separate zones of the pool, thereby providing rides customized for everyone from the seasoned professional to the young novice, without interference to any surfer in any other zone of the pool.

OSD acquired the exclusive rights to this wave pool technology in order to create the NATIONAL SURFING LEAGUE surf parks across the USA and to help advance surfing as a high school, collegiate and Olympic sport. Their ability to create a world-class hollow barrel – and change its shape in motion on demand – provides OSD with the ability to create a unique onshore surfing experience with the potential for television programming content.

These stadium resort locations will make the proliferation of surfing possible by providing municipalities, non-profits, high schools, colleges and the Olympics with the same economically feasible training facilities for all.

This development has the potential to be huge news for Orlando and we will be sure to keep you up-to-date on this exciting project.
