If you are booking a Wave View room, we recommend getting a hotel in Waco on Saturday night, and then coming to WacoSurf on Sunday for our sessions and checking in then.
We recommend arriving in Waco on an early flight on Saturday, October 14th. Flights are cheapest into either Dallas or Austin. Both cities are about 1 hour/45 minutes drive to Waco. Fly out should be Tuesday, October 17th, keeping in mind driving time to those two cities.
We will have a meet-n-greet at one of Waco's famous barbecue joints (details to come) at 5:30pm on Saturday, October 14th.
Sessions on Sunday are Noon to 4pm, and again from 6pm-9pm.
Sessions on Monday are 8am to Noon, and again from 6pm-9pm.
We'll run some "expert" wave sessions, as well as the "Double Barrel" and "Wedges" with an equal amount of rights and lefts.

WacoSurf’s wave pool produces super-fun beachbreak style waves, both rights and lefts, that offer barrels, air sections and, in the ON DEMAND mode, everything from an insane wedge to the infamous “Freak Peak”.
The ADVANCED WAVE (Called the "Lower's" wave) produces a 4-wave set that’s about a 5-foot face at the beginning. The wave lasts about 8 or 9 seconds. There is about 45 seconds between 4-wave sets. The first 30 minutes, you’ll go right. Then, the next group of four gets the next set, and so on. After 30 minutes, you’ll switch to lefts and repeat. The Advanced wave has an easy takeoff that barrels pretty quickly. You can stall, hit a lip move, or race to the second section and again, there’s a barrel, lip to hit, or just throw a big cutback. You can just stall and get barreled the entire length of the wave if you want, or you can just go for one big move. You’ll get about 14-15 waves per hour. Don't be intimidated by the word "advanced" if you're just an average bodyboarder. If you can catch a wave and hold an edge, you can ride this setting no problem.
The CUSTOM WAVE produces 1 wave at a time and there’s about a minute between each wave, so each person gets less rides during this session, but it’s an absolute thrill! Our group will be riding the Waco Wedge and the Double Barrel. Both are "chip in" waves with a mellow takeoff that has a slab barrel section. The Double Barrel requires some skill to master, but the Wedge is short and sweet.
Be sure to have a board that is suited to your size to make the best of this wave pool!
Here’s what we’ll refund for (surf time costs only!)-
*Shut down of the park on the day of our sessions.
*Vicki and/or Jay can’t make it for some reason.
*We don’t fill enough slots to cover the fees we’ve paid to the resort.
Here’s what we won’t refund for:
*The cost of the hotel built in to the package
*You got sick, injured, laid off, decided you didn’t want to go, etc. right before the trip or during the trip.
*You got injured during one of our sessions and can't ride anymore.
*You missed your flight.
*You overslept on the day of our session or didn't make it to the park for some reason and missed our session. If you book, and later decide not to come, you are welcome to sell your slot to someone else as long as they are not a jackass! This is a bodyboarding trip, so we are catering it to bodyboarders, so keep that in mind.
*What else is there to do if I bring my family or during the downtime?
Waco Surf has the Wedge slides, wakeboard cable park and the lazy river (slides and lazy river closed in October). Waco has the Brazos River running through it, and you can walk along the river trail, rent kayaks, check out the zoo, Lake Waco, the Dr. Pepper museum, and the world famous Magnolia Farms Silos for shopping and food trucks. We’ll be getting some epic Texas BBQ the night before we surf!
*What’s the weather like in October in Waco?
Expect temps in the 70s or 80s and (hopefully) sunny skies. Water temps fluctuate this time of year based on the weather pattern in the days prior to our arrival but expect water temps around 70-75 degrees, give or take.
*What if we want to surf MORE than just the above sessions?
You can book public sessions on the Waco Surf website for available times for beginner, intermediate and expert waves, but the sessions go fast, so don’t delay! It’s a great chance to get on a surfboard, or if you’re bringing your family to get your kids/significant other out on a board riding waves in a controlled environment.
*Is the wave dangerous?
Yes, it’s a predictable wave, but let’s be real...certain wave settings pack a punch and there are barreling waves in shallow water over concrete, so yes, this is some element of danger.
Any other questions? Call us between noon-5pm Pacific Time Monday-Friday at: 949-361-0848 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
