Surfing isn't for everyone. You have to be able to swim, you can't be afraid of sharks, and you better be comfortable with sand in your shorts.

Unless you're able to go glow-in-the-dark surfing, anyway. Wavegarden, an Austin, Texas-based company that solved both the landlocked problem and the shark-infested waters problem by creating a wave pool designed specifically for surfing, now has added another wrinkle to their game.
