Fabrizio Stabile's family says the 29-year-old complained of a severe headache on September 16, and by the following day he was incoherent and unable to get out of bed.
Park owner Stuart Parsons told the Waco Tribune-Herald that the facility closed for testing Friday, and that Stabile had only used its wave pool during his visit at an unspecified date.
The agency is testing for Naegleria fowleri, colloquially known as a "brain-eating amoeba".
The BSR Surf Resort in Waco, Texas has temporarily shut its doors after a surfer from New Jersey died as a result of complications from Naegleria fowleri, which is often referred to as a "brain-eating amoeba". Preliminary testing results should be ready later next week. The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals.
The infection is extremely rare, but very deadly.
Initial symptoms of PAM usually start within 1 to 7 days after infection. "We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri". "BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave".

The disease, according to the CDC, is nearly always fatal, with only four people out of 143 cases have survived the infection.
A GoFundMe page has been set up as The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation, where more than US$22,000 of a $50,000 target has been raised so far.
According to the CDC, there have only been 143 diagnosed cases of the parasite in the 56 years since it was discovered.
If water containing the amoeba goes up the nose, the amoeba can invade and cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain.
The CDC also reports that there have been 34 reported cases of the "brain-eating amoeba" since 2008, of which only four of those who were infected survived.
"By the time Fabrizio was diagnosed, it was too late to administer the drug that had previously been provided to three of the only five known survivors in North America", Stephanie wrote.
