If you want to hang 10 at the world’s biggest inland surf park, you’ll have to wait until next week.
NLand Surf Park will remain closed through Nov. 8 while operators try to fix a problem in the plastic-lined, man-made lagoon, said park spokesman Chris Jones.
“On Saturday, we discovered some damage under the lagoon and are making some repairs,” Jones said.
The park opened to great fanfare east of Austin last month. Visitors pay $60 to $90 to ride one of three different sized waves created by a metal foil that runs beneath a pier that bisects the lake. On Monday, crews drained that lagoon, which covers an area the size of nine football fields.
