America's first 'surf park' to open in Austin, Texas

NLand Surf Park, America's first "surf park," opens Friday, and all skill levels are welcome. The waves can be calibrated from gentle to head-high.

With a pool nine football fields long, visitors can expect the rides to last a long time. 

That's welcome news, since surfers have been waiting months for the park to open. 

First, heavy rains stalled construction, then the county and company had to settle competing lawsuits over how to safely treat the park's water.

With the issue settled, and the park finally opening to the public, the next step may be bringing in professionals.

For those who aren't very experienced, NLand has a training center to help surfers develop their skills.
