The Surf Club project is unique in that it is a retrofit of the former Palm Springs Wet n’ Wild waterpark wave pool, a site that provides both advantages and challenges. The original waterpark, built in 1986, was revamped and rebranded as Wet n’ Wild in 2013.
A wide variety of rental boards are available for surf session reservations or for purchase. Riding the wave starts at $100 for beginners (group of 12), $150 for intermediates (group of 12), and $200 for advanced (group of 9). All pricing subject to change.
Opening later in 2024, guests will also be able to enjoy a lazy river and waterslide attractions.
This is designed to be the ideal wave for beginners. Opening Springs 2024.
In surfing, intermediate A-frames refer to wave formation when two waves converge at approximately a 90-degree angle, forming an “A” shape. This term is often used to describe waves suitable for intermediate-level surfers who have developed some skills and can handle more challenging conditions. Intermediate A-Frames provide a fun and varied surfing experience, allowing surfers to ride both left and right waves simultaneously or to choose their preferred direction based on their skill level and preference. It requires some expertise and technique to navigate these waves effectively and make the most out of the wave’s shape and energy.
The Palm Springs Surf Club A-Frames are designed to offer a split peak experience in which two surfers can ride in opposite directions on the same wave. A closeout section at the end is intended to be there for a finishing maneuver. They throw 3 wave sets at 15-second intervals between waves with approximately 1.5 minutes between sets.

Advanced A-Frames are not for the faint of heart. These slabby cylinders allow surfers to pull in off the takeoff and come out in time to do one or two more turns if you are quick enough. The end section makes its presence known on these waves, it’s thick and powerful so bring all the power you can to it. These waves come in 3 wave sets with an 8-second interval between waves and approximately 1.5 minutes between sets.
The lefts and rights extend the length of the ride in our pool by about 3-4 seconds and are designed to be user-friendly for skill levels from intermediate to pro. These are designed to offer a legit first section for a big turn and hold the face throughout the rest of the ride. The end section is playful and great for laybacks, or for the more technical surfer, the blow tail reverse has been a favorite. These waves are thrown out as a 3-wave set with 15 seconds between the waves and about one minute and twenty seconds between sets.
The Palm Springs Surf Club offers private sessions for a customizable and intimate surf experience, including wave profiles not offered in a public capacity. Here, you can repeatedly surf your favorite wave or switch the wave settings on demand. Our private selection includes our “Clean Easy Tube,” “The Slab,” “Air Section,” and more!
