Exciting news yet again for all Westside residents and then some!

The resort will comprise of 400 rooms, eateries, a spa, approximately 50,000 sqft of surf retail, and a surfing museum. Bruce McFarland of American Wave Machines, the brains behind the wave pool technology, says, “at The Endless Summer Resort, we will be able to create a surfing experience that removes the fear for beginners and in some cases, exceeds the real thing for expert surfers”.
