Today, Urban Entertainment Concepts (“UEC”), through its subsidiary, Goodsurf – together with Action Team Veranstaltungs GmbH (“ATV”) – announces Goodsurf’s acquisition of Citywave North America, including all intangible property, rights, and responsibilities of Citywave throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Caribbean. Citywave is the leading stationary surf wave company in the world with 15 installments in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the United States. The transaction closed on September 16, 2022.
According to Andrew Limbocker, UEC Managing Member, “ATV has worked for over a decade to create the best and most accessible surf experience in the world; no other surf technology merges authenticity with accessibility like Citywave, and we are honored to work with Rainer and his team to expand the incredible experience across North America.”
“We have always wanted to move forward with a strong US partner that shares our vision and spirit for this new and up-and-coming discipline in surfing,” says Rainer Klimaschewski, CEO of Citywave. “I have known Andrew and his team for many years, originally as a potential Citywave customer. The fact that we have ended up as partners on this endeavor after all this time is incredible. We share Goodsurf’s vision of a roll-out in the US for our attraction and are beyond excited to see the Citywave family grow in such a significant way!”
“We’re extremely excited,” Mr. Limbocker continued. “Surfing is the most aspirational yet inaccessible sport in the world and, through our acquisition, we intend to activate location-based-entertainment, retail shopping centers, resorts, sporting complexes, and other leisure and entertainment venues throughout North America and the Caribbean, bringing Citywave one step closer to making surfing accessible to everyone.”
