The Step-Up Series

The SurfLoch Step-Up Series enables guests to learn, practice and improve skills just like they were surfing in the ocean. The Step-Up Series is an all-level surfing attraction where the guest surfs left or right on an angled, progressing wave that moves laterally toward the beach. The Step-Up SurfPool™ has separate areas allowing family-friendly waves for bathers, or surfing waves for surfers.

To check out all of your options, see our Learn-To-Surf Series, and our Pro Series, too.
