The surf spot making waves for So Cal surfers An artificial wave in Waco

There’s no need to check the surf forecast – the surfers seeking waves at this remote spot, set in rural Texas hours away from the salt-water ocean, don’t have to rely on Mother Nature bringing a swell. At the BSR Surf Ranch in Waco, the surf is always up. And for Southern California surfers flocking to the artificial waves, that’s part of the lure. With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic halting travel to popular destinations such as Hawaii, and restrictions and uncertainty with international travel, Southern California surfers have been seeking out a unique surf safari in an unlikely place far away from the coast. For those following the evolution of artificial wave parks, they say the future of surfing has arrived. And it could be a glimpse into a new wave of man-made surf set to pop up in the near future in Palm Springs, just two hours away from the coast. Man-made wave pools have existed for decades, but technology shortfalls made for mediocre waves that never quite caught on. But in the past few years, several surf parks have created a buzz, the most famous being the Surf Ranch in Lemoore, created by 11-time world surfing champ Kelly Slater.
