Kelly Slater is giving the world more wave pools to enjoy, as plans for a 155-acre expansion on the WSL-owned Surf Ranch in Lemoore have been approved by the Kings County Planning Commission.
The expansion will add two more wave pools to the facility, and both will be open to the general public.
Surfing lessons and accommodations will be offered, as six portable lodging units will be built as well. So anyone who wants to stay over or who would simply like to take advantage of the wave pools a little bit longer can definitely do so.
With these new additions, the Surf Ranch will be able to hold six events per year, along with some music events. And so far, Kelly’s wave has done a good job with hosting surfing events, as the recently concluded Founders’ Cup was a resounding success.
Of course, the rest of the facility will continue to do research and development to ensure enhanced user experience.
The expansion is expected to be completed by 2026.
