Grand Junction Could Become Colorado’s Top Surf Spot
Get ready to ride the wave in Grand Junction.
You’ve seen it on cruise ships and in water parks, but have you ever been on one? I’ve always wanted to and now I’ve got my chance. The Wave is currently in the funding phase and will be an indoor venue on 25 Road next to KidzPlex and Grand Valley Climbing. This is the place for indoor surfing.
The Wave is perfect to have some major fun with the family. This place is centered around a FlowRider double – which uses sheet wave technology to create the perfect wave. Whether you snowboard, skateboard, surf or wakeboard, you’ll be into it because The Wave re-creates something similar to it.
River surfing is becoming more and more popular here in Colorado, there’s even a park outside of Denver. Maybe they’ll even consider adding a whitewater park too and then pro surfers will be lining up to get in. I’ve always wanted to go surfing but have never had the courage to do it. Reoccurring nightmares of surfing with sharks led me far away from that idea. I’m happy that I’ll be able to try surfing for the first time, inside and away from the sharks.
The Wave seems to love the local community, they will offer discounted rates and membership for locals and programs for District 51 school and home school groups. They plan to have special events, including College Nights and seasonal events, and fundraisers. You can even rent the place out for a birthday, team building or bachelorette party.
