From 'the Guide to Western Skateboard Parks' 1978

Owned and Managed by:
Ed Olson and Tony Federico, Owners Jack Highfill, Manager
FEATURES:
The Endless Wave features 38,000 square feet of skating surface. A three-bowl cloverleaf run has depths of 5', 6', and 8' while the main swimming pool has a 10' drop with 4' of vertical. There are two snake runs, one with gently sloping terrain and the other with more radical vertical. The snakes both measure 300' in length. The slalom run is 100' long, and the freestyle area is 45' by 75' and oval shaped.
A lot of attention has been paid to all phases of design here, right down to minor details. Judging from the comments coming in, it was worth the effort.
MEMBERSHIP:
The required lifetime membership fee is $5.00 with which you will receive a personalized photo ID card. Skaters coming in from out of town can waive the membership requirement for one day. Admission cost is $2.50 per two-hour session, and sessions begin every two hours on the odd hour. On weekdays, members can skate for $1.50 during the 3 p.m. session. All necessary safety equipment may be rented for 25 cents per item.
FACILITIES:
Although not completed at press time, the 1,700 square foot pro shop for the Endless Wave should be completed soon. It is fashioned after a Swiss ski chalet, and will be stocked with high-quality skateboarding equipment. Lessons and board repair will also be offered. Vending machines will be installed, and a fountain is planned in the future. A game arcade with 30 pinball and video machines should be ready for operation along with the pro shop.
