Surf’s up Mesa! A 37-acre surf, shop, fitness, and multi-purpose development project is slated to kick off Tuesday, March 30th at 11am. The surf oasis is made possible by Cannon Beach Developers and is located at the intersection of Power and Warner Streets in Mesa. The project, two and a half years in design and development, will bring the ocean to Arizona in a place that is second to none.
“We hope that Cannon Beach will get the most out of its customers by challenging them to join new activities or at least be inspired by them,” said Cole Cannon, Senior Developer at Cannon Beach.

Revel Surf will anchor the development with a 3.3 hectare surfing lagoon, which will offer the world’s first Traveling Surf technology from Swell MFG and the stationary Rapid Surf technology from UNIT Surf Pool in one location. This unique combination creates a more natural surfing lineup with a top wave instead of a right session only or left session only option found in many of today’s wave pools.
“The Swell MFG will create peak waves and provide some of the most epic and diverse wave sets for every level of surfer,” said Matt Gunn, co-founder of Swell MFG. “We look forward to welcoming all surfers to enjoy this surf lagoon.”
This new technology and layout has caught the attention of the professional surfing community as it can cover all levels of difficulty.
“Our wave technology and vision for this project will be unlike anything you’ve seen in the market before, and I’m so grateful to be part of this incredible project and team,” said Shane Beschen, former pro surfer and X Games Gold medal winner.
“Combining the state-of-the-art traveling waves from Swell MFG with the best stationary fast surf wave on the market from UNIT Surf Pool makes this surf park the most sought-after surf destination in the US,” said Tony Finn of UNIT Surf Pool and Wakeboard Creator. “Together you have the perfect surfing experience for people of all ages, every ability and every ability. There has never been a better opportunity for surfing lessons and technical advancement than here. “
The development is geared towards the growing population in the East Valley. With a growing influx of California surfers, young and old, who have moved to Arizona and crave the beach, as well as first-time visitors looking to venture into the world of surfing. Whether you are a spectator or a participant, there is something for everyone at Cannon Beach – specialty restaurants, fish tacos on the beach, day spa, gym, splash pad for children and an overall good atmosphere.
The Cannon Beach development team consists of talent from Hawaii to Germany. The land planning project was developed in consultation with the EPS Group, H20 Design and Adaptive Architects from Arizona.
Revel Surf plans to open in May 2022 with the following amenities such as an on-site hotel, retail, office, restaurants, and more. The Cannon Beach development site is currently maintaining potential tenant proposals for its various pad locations.
