ASB MAGAZINE: Surf Lakes launched its official corporate video. Its purpose is to highlight the benefits and competitive advantages of Surf Lakes’ 5 Waves technology to potential licensees. Testing and live demonstrations have been continuing with success at the R&D facility in Yeppoon, Central Queensland. The Australian wave pool company is hosting several licensee groups from the USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.


“Interest is so strong from around the world that we will be hosting more demonstrations to licensees in December 2019, and January 2020,” underlines Surf Lakes.


At the moment, these sessions are closed to the media. The artificial wave pool developers say that they have several groups who have signed a Heads of Agreement with Surf Lakes to construct a commercial surf lagoon facility in their respective areas.


“While the prototype facility has been pumping out perfect waves now for a while, our goal is to build a commercial facility open to the public as soon as possible,” the company adds.


“We hope to be able to start this process in the coming months with several groups eager to start in early 2020.”


“Until a commercial site is up and running, we will continue to operate the prototype site and do regular demonstrations for licensees, shareholders, media, and special guests. It is also being used to develop our training and safety systems.”


Surf Lakes promises more surf breaks than any other wave pool, the largest variety of peaks, the highest user capacity (2,000 waves per hour), the largest wave height, and no machinery or fences next to the surfers.
