Surf Lakes Holdings Ltd is an Australian company that is developing a totally new kind of wave-making technology using concentric waves. Our technology will be capable of producing a variety of waves that closely mimic natural ocean waves. Furthermore, because of the way Surf Lakes works, not only will it have the lowest energy cost per wave compared to other technologies, but it will be capable of producing up to 2,400 surfable waves per hour. Surf Lakes™ goal is to bring surfing to the masses around the world. Surf Lakes owns all IP globally and is planning to license the technology to licensees in various regions or countries around the world. Surf Lakes also manage the construction and commissioning of each facility, then monitor and maintain it. Licensees will be responsible for marketing, management and day to day operations for their venue.



Target specs for the first iteration is as follows:

  • Up to 2,400 waves per hour
  • 8 separate breaks (4 lefts and 4 rights)
  • Peak wave height of 2.4m at premier break (8ft face height)
  • Multiple wave types from beginner to advanced simultaneously
  • Can facilitate up to 240 surfers at the same time, each catching 10 waves per hour


Surf Lakes works by using a large wave generator, positioned at the centre of a large man-made lake. The bathymetry (bottom contours) of the lake have been specifically shaped using sophisticated CFD computer modeling, and contain 8 separate point-break style reefs around the perimeter. The wave generator produces a single large concentric wave which radiates outwards. When this wave intersects each reef, a wave breaks and runs the length of the reef before dissipating on the shoreline. Up to six waves sets can be run with a short break in between. The waves will vary in size from 1m (3ft) to 2.4m (8ft) face height, catering for beginner to advanced surfers simultaneously.

Surf Lakes™ vision is for a series of multi-purpose, high capacity, high throughput surf parks/surf stadiums in major cities around the world as commercially attractive stand-alone businesses. Surf Lakes™ facilities can also be integrated attractions within theme parks, built close to other tourist attractions etc. A Surf Lakes™ facility opens up multiple opportunities for a variety of sports and revenue opportunities such as accommodation, food, merchandising and equipment sales surf comps as well as events and conferences.


We are well into construction of our first full-scale Surf Lake on private land near Yeppoon, Capricorn Coast (QLD). Completion is scheduled for around April/May 2018, with live demonstrations to media and potential licensees to commence soon after. This facility is privately owned and operated, with access vial invitation only. We are working on a plan to open to the general public at a later stage.







Tech specs for Full-scale Demo site:

  • Lake Size:                                          200m long x 150m wide
  • Maximum Depth:                            10m (33ft) at core
  • Water Volume:                                 Circa 60ML
  • Number of Outer Breaks:               8 (4 lefts and 4 rights)
  • Number of Learner Breaks:           3
  • Maximum Wave Height:                 2.4m (face height)
  • Water type                                         Freshwater



  • Low-cost wave generation and high output – up to 2,400 waves per hour
  • Multiple waves, of varying size and length, at the same time
  • Creates ‘sets’ of waves, just like the ocean
  • Beginner to advanced waves at the same time
  • Multiple breaks allows different events to run concurrently, this opening up many revenue opportunities
