The Surf Park Summits
The Surf Park Summits are a product of San Diego State University’s Center for Surf Research and Surf Park Central. The summit’s purpose is to gather the industry’s top minds to grow the surf industry and provide the mental, physical and emotional stoke of surfing to those that do not have access to the ocean, emphasizing authentic, sustainable and profitable surf experiences.
The first Surf Park Summit was held in 2013, in Southern California, with over 300 attendees from 30 countries. Tom Lochtefeld was a keynote speaker at that Summit, with his topic being Surf Park Metrics and Standardization(as a tool for future success and sustainability).
