I wasn't born yet, but I wouldn't do it if they had it today. I would be too scared of being gator food.

I was only 5 months old.

I do recall reading about it and here is a link with some pictures.


The article mentions it was shore erosion that caused its demise and it was last tested in 1985.

"Though there were rumors of the machine failing too often to maintain, the widely accepted reason for its demise was the severe erosion of "Surfrider Beach," ultimately leading to its closure and abandonment soon after opening."
