This agreement will launch the first of two PerfectSwell® locations in the State of São Paulo. Project kick off is immediate, with surfing anticipated in November 2020.

“JHSF is constantly innovating its real estate developments and the importance of surfing to Brazil cannot be overstated.” said Thiago Alonso, CEO of JHSF. “We are very proud of working hand-in-hand with AWM implementing PerfectSwell® technology in Brazil.  We intend to launch two projects with surf facilities over the coming quarters, resulting in greater waves for our clients.  We will be able to specify any ride length, wave size, and pool footprint, with an aesthetic design for both recreational and competitive surfers.”

“We could not be more thrilled to build world class PerfectSwell® surf facilities with a world class development team like JHSF.” said Bruce McFarland, CEO of AWM. “The Brazilian Storm is for real, with Brazilian athletes having the largest national representation of any country on the WSL Championship Tour.  PerfectSwell® makes concentrated surf training available to an already talent rich surfing country.”
