La Quinta Surf Park proposal

Surf Park project : In recent days, a gigantic project to make people surf in the middle of the desert has been abandoned by the city council of La Quinta, a Californian town of 41,000 inhabitants. This project had been imagined and carried by one of the legends of world surfing Kelly Slater. Surfers will therefore be forced to surf the waves of the Pacific Ocean more than 200 kilometers away.

By riding it, Simon felt the board had further drive or thrust, so he called the boards" Thrusters."

As the standard and best each- around design for 40 times now, the Thruster has also fluently come the most copied design in surge history, with an inviting maturity of the world's elite browsers still using three- fin surfboards utmost of the time.
