Why Not Make The FEC Slip The World's First Urban Surf Pool?

New, 5 comments

Instead of a soccer stadium, the FEC Slip could become, get this, the 'World's First Urban Surf Pool'. That was an old idea that the blog Miami Vision Blogorama had way back in 2006/2007.

Funding might be a joint venture between the city and a surf pool builder (there are more than one). Open 24 hours a day, it would also provide free entertainment to those sitting on grassy berms on each side of the surf pool. And, of course, it would be another already-in-place venue for a future Olympics. It would preserve the slip, create watery action next to Museum Park, and bring in some eye candy in the form of hot surfers. On the other hand, this totally radical (dude!) idea probably wouldn't be the best situation for the slip's corals.
