WeWork CEO Adam Neumann is such a big surfing fan he led the company to invest $13 million into a startup that creates artificial waves — check out how 'Wavegarden' works
Business Insider -

Before WeWork was plagued with investor concerns and a stalled initial public offering, chief executive Adam Neumann directed the company to invest in an artificial wave startup.

Wavegarden offers multi-million-dollar wave installations that have been set up in three countries so far — but its only US location faced roadblocks with regulators and locals.

WeWork's investment in Wavegarden is one of the more far-flung backings made by a company that has struggled to define its core purpose.
