Surf Park Central was founded in 2012 by John Luff, a successful surf park developer and industry expert, and Dr. Jess Ponting, a Professor of Sustainable Surfing Tourism from San Diego State University, with a mission to accelerate the successful growth of surf parks. In September of 2013 we hosted the first Surf Park Summit in Laguna Beach, California, and in September of 2016 we hosted Surf Park Summit 2 in Orlando, Florida in conjunction with Surf Expo. We’ve since hosted Surf Park Summit Europe at Surf Snowdonia, the world’s first commercial Surf Park, and hosted numerous in-person and virtual summits.
