ASB MAGAZINE: URBNSURF, Australia’s leading surf park is set to resume operations this Friday after temporarily closing in late March due to coronavirus (COVID-19) enforced restrictions. Bookings for their Intermediate, Advanced and new Cruiser, and Expert surf sessions are available from June 19th via URBNSURF.com.
In line with the Victorian Government’s gradual easing of restrictions, up to 18 surfers will be permitted on each side of URBNSURF’s, 2 hectare surfing lagoon, and additional hygiene and safety measures have been implemented to ensure guest and crew safety.
While initially only surfing guests will be permitted at the park, as restrictions are eased further, surf lessons and spectator visits will resume and more of the surf park’s areas and amenities (including new lagoonside hot tubs) will be opened.
“We’re stoked to re-open URBNSURF Melbourne this Friday, and we look forward to welcoming our members and guests back to Tullamarine to share perfect waves with their family and friends,” said Andrew Ross, URBNSURF’s Founder and Director. “During our closure we completed our Winter maintenance early, so the park is looking incredible, and the lagoon is an idyllic, crystalline blue.”
“Based on feedback from our members and guests, we’re delighted to offer two new surf sessions featuring a range of new waves. Our new Cruiser sessions are designed for surfers who love riding a longboard, mini-mal, or fish in peeling pointbreak conditions like Point Roadknight. And if you chase slabbing barrels, then our Expert sessions will serve up exclusively variations of our infamous Beast mode, with limited spots in the lineup to maximise safety and wave count,” added Andrew.
“Despite a difficult few months for hospitality venues, the Three Blue Ducks have made some incredible progress with their fitout, and we’re excited for them to open their first Melbourne venue at the park this Winter. We can’t wait to enjoy their delicious, honest food after a surf, with epic views of our lagoon.”
To celebrate the reopening URBNSURF have released a new film, From The Air.
From The Air was shot on a crisp Autumn morning in early March. The sun was shining, the wind blowing offshore, the water crystal clear, and everyone was scoring. The aerial perspective gives you a sense of scale of URBNSURF’s surfing lagoon, which is larger than Melbourne’s other sporting icon, the MCG.
