Company plans to start wave park

HONOLULU – A local company is looking at bringing surf parks to Hawaii.

Wave Garden Hawaii LLC says it has secured rights to a Spanish company’s technology that produces waves engineered to roll through natural or artificial lakes or lagoons.

The equipment and installation start at about $4 million.

Wave Garden Hawaii is looking at developing wave parks that offer high-performance waves for experienced surfers, as well as smaller ways for surfing lessons.

Wave Garden Hawaii is co-founded by big-wave surfer Brian Keaulana and Kenan J. Knieriem Jr.
