American Wave Machines & Polin Create New Strategic Alliance for Waterpark Market


Global Waterpark Designer to Align with Out-of-Ocean Surfing Leader

American Wave Machines Inc. (AWM), USA, the leader in Out-of-Ocean Surfing and Polin Waterparks, Turkey, a world leader in design, production and installation of waterparks, has announced a strategic alliance. As of November 2015, Polin Waterparks became an exclusive global distributor for American Wave Machines in the burgeoning waterpark market.

With surfing as the most aspirational sport, this new partnership provides Polin the ability to design surf parks within their waterparks, opening up this coveted surfing demographic to their clients.   The partnership provides clients with unique and compelling waterpark designs from Polin, competitive pricing and fast turnaround, also improving service and expanding product offerings. 

"This partnership gives Polin the ability to offer clients either single surfing systems, or full blown surf park designs within their waterparks." said Dr. Kubilay Alpdogan, Director of Sales & Design at Polin, "It's a great complement to the suite of Polin slides and water systems, and provides a turn key solution with the best technology in the market."

AWM already has a strong relationship with Polin, which has completed more than 2,500 projects in 93 countries. Polin Resin Transfer Molding has been the backbone of SurfStream®, the only surfing machine fabricated with high quality FRP, which creates multiple standing wave types and sizes all in one machine. The partnership expands the offering to include PerfectSwell® wave pool systems, the first and only air-pressure system to create naturally occurring ocean swells for an authentic world class surfing experience.

American Wave Machines has installed SurfStream standing wave machines across the world including La Ola Movistar, Peru; Sundsvall, Sweden; Turks & Caicos; Nashua, New Hampshire; and Montreal, Quebec.

"A turn-key integrated approach to the waterpark industry has been our goal," said Bruce McFarland, Founder and President, American Wave Machines. "Polin is a cutting edge, state-of-the art company and the perfect partner to bring about our vision of bringing surfing everywhere. We are extremely pleased with this new partnership."

On a final note, for those who will be travelling to Orlando, Florida, for the IAAPA Attractions Expo, please make sure to visit us at booth #4239. Marie McFarland, Bruce McFarland and Clement Ginestet will be at Polin booth during the show.
