According tomedia reports, artificial wave simulators may not be a new concept, but now a new system in the surf park industry has made waves. It is understood that the Surf Lakes prototype facility, located in Queensland, Australia, is a 360-degree system in the middle of the water and capable of generating up to five waves at the same time.
The precise design of underwater sandbars allows the team to achieve different, repeatable wave shapes and lengths — from professional-level rolling double barrels ??? To beginners it is easier to get close to gentle waves.
Although the system is not yet open to the public, its founder and CEO, Aaron Trevis, says their patented system has attracted international interest. The team is currently expanding in the US, the UK and other countries.
Bringing surfing to those who don’t live near the coastline can be a big leap forward, while the 360-degree design makes it interesting to watch the race. With the ability to generate repeatable conditions in a controlled environment, perhaps we will see this design used in Olympic surfing competitions in the near future.
