The future is now
A New Wave of Opportunity
Today the surf park industry is an exciting and rapidly growing space allowing entrepreneurs, developers, and municipalities to build everything from simple stand-alone facilities and destination-resorts to master-planned communities, large scale mixed-used attractions, and commercial venues. The technology and operating models are now proven and the demand for such amenities has never been higher.
Alchemy Surf Park will be a local-amenity for nearby communities, an exciting attraction within the greater Sacramento Valley, a global destination for surf-tourism, and a jewel within Placer County and Northern California.
A Project with Purpose
Alchemy is the seemingly magical process of transforming or combining elements into something new and of great value
Alchemy Surf Park will provide an oasis of sport, health & wellness, leisure & entertainment, and inspiration within one of the region’s most exciting sporting destinations, Placer County. The project truly has the potential for greatness and will have a profound impact on Placer County and the Greater Sacramento Valley region for generations to come.
The physical and mental health benefits derived from surfing are well-documented and have been shown to improve the function of your heart, lungs, and respiratory system. Increased mood, improved balance, and better sleep are additional positive side-effects users can expect from surfing. Recent studies have even shown surfing to be a successful treatment for PTSD, anxiety, and depression. To learn more about Blue Health, click here.
Surf parks have a unique opportunity to help democratize the sport in ways that are just not available in the ocean. Our accessibility concept leverages the ability to produce a wide-variety of surf experiences in a safe and controlled environment allowing us to cater to a diverse range of ability levels and special needs. Providing access to surfing and outdoor recreation is a core objective of the project and our goal is to make them accessible to everyone.
Surfing has always been about family or “Ohana” as the Hawaiians refer to it. Studies have shown that families who spend time together have children who are happier, healthier, and even do better in school. The environment we seek to create at the Alchemy Surf Park will allow friends and families to bond and strengthen their relationships in meaningful ways and create memories to last a lifetime.
The balance between commercial land-use and other designated land-uses is critical to the longterm success of Placer County. Our project focuses largely on the commercial element by providing affordable access to highly desired activities while creating a sustainable ecosystem of ancillary services. With continued pressure to develop and rezone parcels within the county for residential use, Placer County is at risk of losing these important commercial opportunities. The sales-tax revenue generated from the project and the additional economic-impact it provides will also help the county deliver needed improvements to residents.
Tourism and Lodging
Surfing attracts people from all over the world and will create impressive tourism for our region. Our vision is to offer a mix of lodging options that cater to a variety of travelers while creating compelling guest experiences and concepts that bring personality and coherence to the property. These options include a boutique hotel overlooking the surf lagoon, modern cabin village, fixed Airstreams, and upscale RV Resort strategically nestled among the trees. The Transient Occupancy Tax generated from our lodging options will also have a positive effect on the town of Loomis and its residents.
Sustainability and Preservation
Surfers have always been stewards of the environment and our sustainability concept carries-on this important tradition. The facility is designed to blend into the natural setting requiring minimal civil-engineering work and causing the least possible visual and auditory effect on the surrounding environment. The project also has the potential to be powered by renewable energy sources with the ultimate goal of being completely carbon neutral. The preservation of open-space and natural resources at the project-site are also added goals the project seeks to deliver.
