It has been almost a year since WhiteWater launched Endless Surf to the world, and despite pandemic lockdowns and economic uncertainty the company has reported confirmed projects across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.
As a result, the Canadian manufacturer has grown its the team to meet demand.
Baptiste Caulonque joins as chief commercial officer to work alongside president, Paul Chutter. Well known within the industry as a consultant to several mixed-use surf park developments, Baptiste became a convert to Endless Surf technology when he was introduced to it as part of his responsibility to source the technology solutions for La Vague Grand Paris. He remains a project director for this development, which will bring this enormous board sports park to the people of his homeland, France, in 2024. He then introduced Endless Surf to the development team of Los Vientos, an over 1,000 key resort development in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, where he is responsible for the aquapark and surf park components.
Baptiste said: “There have been pivot moments in my career and being introduced to Endless Surf 18 months ago was one of them. From the start, I was impressed with the professionalism of the team and blown away by their wave technology—I consider myself very lucky to be joining what I’m confident will be the undisputed leading technology and operators’ top choice for surf pools.”
