Kelly Slater’s proposed surf park at the Palm Beach Park of Commerce has received approval from Palm Beach County, according to the surfing legend’s Instagram.

“Well...it’s official,” Slater wrote. “We have a building permit in Palm Beach County for #SurfRanchFlorida. I’m beyond proud and stoked to see the first of our developments at @kswaveco going to my home state of #Florida.”

Surf Ranch Florida will live on 80 acres and features a man-made surfing lake. Slater proved the concept already in California.

“Thank you to Mayor Burdick and the city commissioners for your approval and support of the project,” Slater continued. “Also thank you to #JupiterFarms for your comments and support. Looking forward to being neighbors. I keep joking about it but it might be true that now I can move back home now and surf as much as I want! Cannot wait to see a bunch more stoked people riding waves. This is gonna be fun.”
