FAQ

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Safety of our participants and staff remains the top priority. LEARN MORE »
  1. Why is the wave pool only open to private groups? Opening to private groups is part of our COVID-19 phased reopening plan. We are ensuring that you will only be in contact with people you arrived with and will not have any interaction with someone you did not arrive with.
  2. When will the wave pool be open to the public? We are working with the New Jersey Department of Health and our consulting company to determine when we can safely open public surf sessions.
  3. Why are other venues open to the public and Skudin Surf is not?  Skudin Surf at American Dream falls under the guidelines of indoor aquatic and recreation facility as well as indoor pool facilities. We must adhere to guidelines issued by the state of New Jersey and will reopen in phases in order to remain in compliance and provide the safest experience possible.
  4. How can I use the wave pool? Surf with friends! Find a group and reserve the wave pool for your own private party or event.
  5. Is the wave pool safe for my group? Absolutely. We took every possible measure to guarantee the highest level of safety for staff and surfers. Checkout our full safety plan on our website.
  6. I still don’t get why I can’t just come use the wave pool in an open session. Skudin Surf has operated successfully throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic and always put the safety of our clients and staff first. We pride ourselves on our success and will reopen to the public, but only once we are fully authorized to do so and when we can guarantee the highest standard of safety to the public. Until then, find a group of friends and enjoy Skudin Surf at American Dream in your own private group!
  7. Do you plan on opening individual bookings – like open public sessions? Yes, once the COVID restrictions lift and the pandemic is over, we can start bringing in individual public sessions to join others;  those public session have not been released yet.
  8. How big are the waves? If you come just to mess around and have fun with your friends you will enjoy the experience. The  wave height can max around three to four feet and there are a dozen different wave type options.
  9. Can you do multiple tricks and maneuvers on the waves? Most waves allow for one maneuver. Section waves for maneuvers can be programmed to come every 22-25 seconds which is incredible for consistency.  A- frame waves are a great way to start the session to get your wave count up and get a feel of the waves. The barreling wave comes every 80 seconds. The tube is small, tight and technical, but is great training for your under-the-lip takeoffs.
  10. Can I book a session in the middle of the day? Private Dream Session options are online, letting you book your sessions starting Oct 15th – Nov 15th.  The hours of operation are 7am – 11am or 9pm -11pm.
  11. If I book a session, am I allowed to bring a guest to capture photos? Yes, as long has you have less than 20 people in your group. Private Dream Sessions max out at 16 surfers, allowing the extra persons in the group to spectate the session.
  12. When are the bookings going to open at the end of November into December?  For right now, we are releasing sessions one month ahead of time. For example, Nov 16th sessions will open online by Oct 16th. Keep in mind, once the COVID restrictions lift and the pandemic is over, we will be releasing a schedule in advance.
  13. Are the waves similar in length to the waves at BSR Park? We use the same technology as BSR combined with @PerfectSwell technology. The distance of rides is shorter, three to eight seconds, and the waves are three to four feet at its tallest sections.   To use an analogy, if BSR is a skatepark, then we are the few super fun mini ramps in your backyard.  Keep in mind, most wave pools are outdoors and are climate-based and other surf pools have many extra costs associated with travel – airplanes, hotels, rent-cars.   We are indoors and just 15 minutes outside NYC!
  14. Is the temperature really 80 degrees in the air and water?  Yes, it’s hot and sunny. Be prepared for summer heat and sunshine through the bubble walls. Yes, you can get sunburnt!
  15. Do you offer special rates for Surf Teams and schools? Yes, please inquire for rates by emailing americandream@skudinsurf.com
  16. Do you have any plans to offer season memberships or anything like that?  We will be offering multi-session packages once the COVID pandemic is over.
  17. As a parent, can I surf the outside waves while my children surf the inside whitewaters during a Private Dream Session? Yes, if you use the add on function to purchase an extra instructor.  We can provide instruction on the long whitewater riding waves, aka our “Rubber Ducky” waves. We recommend that for every five surfers, the services of one instructor are purchased as an add-on at $100/hour.  In addition, we recommend that beginner surfers under the age of eight utilize the service of a one-on-one instructor.
  18. Should I bring my own board? We have a complementary quiver to choose from online included in your dream session – shortboards, fun-shapes, longboards, and bodyboards click here.  If you plan on bringing your own board please make sure you “volume up.” This is a freshwater pool and the density is different than the ocean. Wear a short leash or your board will hit the wall. There is a good chance of some minor digs, so leave your favorite board at home.
