Austinites won't be hangining 10 any time soon.
A regulatory battle is hanging up a project that would create a place to surf almost five hours away from the nearest ocean.
The NLand Surf Park is a 10-acre lagoon with mechanism that creates rolling, ocean-like waves in Austin, Texas. The facility had planned to open by early fall, but construction came to a halt in recent weeks. Local authorities shut the project down on grounds that it doesn't meet state swimming pool code.
Austin Park, LLC., which owns the manmade surf venue, and Travis County are at odds over how this unique body of water should be operated.
Now parties have exchanged lawsuits.
