The lure of the wave pool description from the 2021 planned opening of DSRT Surf in Palm Desert, CA should make any surfer want to head inland. They write:
Waves powered by The Wavegarden Cove. Ocean-like waves in clean, crystal-clear water. Consistent rights and lefts, barrels, walls, and turn sections for experienced surfers. Gentle inside sections for cruising, learning and sharing with family and friends. Surfing all day and into the night with limited crowds and optimized wave conditions.
Wow, night surfing too! And, should you want a respite from the waves, there's a planned, full-feature surf resort surrounding you: Featuring villas or hotel rooms, locally sourced foods, the world-class Desert Willow Golf Course, yoga, tennis, pickleball, volleyball, spa, etc. They even plan, a "Surf Academy for lessons, camps, and retreats to serve individual and groups at all surfing levels."
We will keep you posted with updates on this surf resort and WaveGarden Technology. Read about first approval of DSRT Surf and details of surf lagoon operation hours.
