I know a big chunk of surfing is dealing and understanding the ocean and break but I also see a positive for having an indoor surfing option especialy if your some distance from the coast.
As for surfing vs snowboarding, well one takes 2-3 days to learn, the other doesnt... Also I doubt this place could cope with the number of people an indoor snow place could.

Yeah sure I understand that but one of the realy hard things about surfing is the inconsistency of the wave.
There isnt a pro sportsman on the planet who doesnt try to limit variance , being able to practice move A on a 4ft wave all day may not help you when its 2ft and your doing move B but it will help when it is 4ft..
I dont see it as a bad thing at all, I dont see it as a replacement for real surfing on real breaks though.
Like indoor snowboarding isnt a patch on real snowboarding, but its better than nothing.
