PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (March 28, 2017) — At Sawgrass Marriott you can learn to surf without ever setting foot in the ocean on the SurfStream® wave machine debuting in early April. SurfStream®, developed by American Wave Machines, is the world’s first standing wave machine, offering up to seven different wave types for all skill levels. The Sawgrass Marriott is proud to be the first resort in the continental United States to offer guests a SurfStream® experience. SurfStream® is the only technology of its kind to be used in sanctioned Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) surf competitions.
The SurfStream® accommodates one or more surfers or bodyboarders and entire families can ride and learn together. Guests of all ages are invited, but must be at least 42” tall. Located adjacent to the resort’s main pool and in view of the resort’s picturesque lagoons, the SurfStream® offers a remarkably invigorating experience in an exceptional venue. After their session, resort guests are encouraged to take a short complimentary van ride to the property’s private Cabana Beach Club. Here they can relax or test their new skills courtesy of the club’s available rental equipment along the sandy white beach and refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Hours of SurfStream® operation are from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5:20pm on Saturdays and Sundays until Memorial Day when operating hours are extended. Hotel guests can make reservations through the Recreation Attendant anytime during their stay, and Cabana Club Members and locals are welcome to make reservations as well with at least 48 hours notice. Introductory pricing starts at $20 per person per 20-minute session (five minutes of instruction followed by 15 minutes of surf). SurfStream® may also be booked for group events, parties and corporate team-building programs.
