Occy visits construction site (video)

Occy recently joined CEO Aaron Trevis and Director Reuben Buchanan onsite to view the progress. See the video of the visit via the link below:

“It’s just so enormous,” said Occhilupo as he surveyed the site. “I can really feel the adrenaline starting to pump! I just better make that first drop!”
As previously mentioned this first site will not be open to the public and will be used as a demonstration lake for potential licensees from around the globe. Already there has been interest from countries/regions such as USA, Vietnam, Fiji, Portugal, Middle East, Europe, Brazil and also from within Australia.

New artist impression

Surf Lakes has produced a new artists impression of what a typical commercial Surf Lake might look like. However the site in Yeppoon will not contain any buildings or infrastructure as it will initially be used as a demonstration site to prove and refine the technology while showing the tech to potential licensees, media and shareholders.

Above: Artists impression of a completed Surf Lakes commercial facility. NB: Please use this image for representation in a Surf Lakes related story.

CEO and Founder of Surf Lakes, Aaron Trevis, is thrilled at the prospect of potentially having waves breaking within months, and he is eagerly anticipating viewing brand ambassadors and former world champions Mark Occhilupo and Barton Lynch taking on those first few waves. “I just can’t wait to see Occy standing in a barrel,” said Trevis. “As we see the parts of the wave machine arriving onsite, the reality and sheer enormity of the project is truly mind-blowing!”
