Pro surfer K Slater is lobbying to build a private wave pool resort in Coachella Valley and the City of La Quinta needs to say no

119 irrigated golf courses currently open throughout the Coachella valley are already sucking our aquifer dry. As in, it’s emptying out folks. No more water. Yet Kelly Slater is currently green lit by the City of La Quinta to build a master planned community of million dollar homes around a $10,000 PER DAY wave pool? Oh, and it’s not open to the public. So let me repeat – our tax dollars are paying for people with a spare million to build a members only community complete with a replica Pacific ocean for their beach going fun in the desert. Meanwhile, the mini Pacific Ocean is sucking away all the aquifer groundwater ON TOP of watering 119 additional local golf courses. Our voices need to combine together to vote down the permits. The cherry on top? Coachella already has 3 wave pool parks. Every single one was a failure and are currently closed. The business model is a proven failure yet we move forward? Just….no.
