Sports Facilities Advisory CEO to Announce New Patent and First Resort Location to be Developed by Ocean Sports Development, Inc., the USA Exclusive Licensee of Webber Wave Pools

(Orlando, FL)  Dev Pathik, Founder and CEO of Sports Facilities Advisory (SFA), is slated to make two major announcements on behalf of Ocean Sports Development, Inc. (OSD) at the upcoming Surf Expo, the world’s largest and longest-running board sports tradeshow, which runs September 6-8 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. On Saturday, September 8 at 11am, Mr. Pathik will present “The Future of Sports Facilities and the Retail Impact,” a seminar in which he will focus on OSD’s plans for development of surf pool resorts featuring the patented Webber Wave Pools technology; how those resorts will be game changers for the future of amateur, professional, and collegiate surfing; and implications for the surf-related retail industry. Two major announcements will take place.


The first will be the announcement of a new patent designed to enhance the Webber Wave Pools technology with the ability to change the bottom shape of the surf pool on demand by flowing water from programmable flow heads positioned at equidistant points. This technology will provide an almost unlimited number of bottom shapes to change the wave break shape and reaction. Video demo:


The second will be the announcement of OSD’s inaugural surf pool location inside the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, an award-winning Four Diamond destination located off I-4 just 10 miles south of Walt Disney World. This first state-of-the art Webber Wave Pool is scheduled to be constructed at the resort in 2019.


OSD is the exclusive USA licensee of the patented Webber Wave Pools technology and trademark owner of the National Surfing League (NSL), with long-range plans to create a league of premier professional surfing competitions for men and women once enough surf pool locations are operational. In June of 2017 OSD aligned with SFA as their exclusive partner in the planning, financing, and development of all new surf pool projects.
