Surf Lakes R&D facility is back in operation!

We are pleased to announce that our full-scale R&D facility in Yeppoon is back in operation. Repairs, upgrades and improvements were completed in late June and since then our engineering team has been undertaking further testing. They are working through a detailed process to refine the machine, systems and software in order to maximise efficiency, which will continue for several months.

Eighteen months ago, we commenced construction of this full-scale prototype in order to test all aspects of our “5 Waves” technology – from construction methods, commissioning process, drive system, CWD (wave machine), through to reef design and wave surf-ability. Using concentric waves for surfing is a totally new technology, therefore our engineering team are following a rigorous testing process.

Although full scale, the Yeppoon R&D facility is a prototype only and is not open to the public. It is being used to work through the design changes and improvements that need to be made, in order to deliver a commercial product to clients. We are also reviewing the wave shape results at different sizes in relation to the current reef bathymetry. This information is being fed back into our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling program in order to make further improvements.

To date the five wave types are breaking with great promise, (whilst not yet perfect). The wave types include Level 1 and 2 fun beach breaks for those starting out, through to Level 4 and 5 waves, which are more challenging for experienced surfers. We have successful run sets of 4 consecutive waves, and achieved wave face heights of 1.8m (6ft). Adjustments to reach 2.4m (8ft) are being made in the coming months.

We anticipate all testing to be completed in late 2019, with the commercial design ready for licensees in early 2020. We are also in negotiations with several potential licensees in various countries, and hope to make announcements relating to these projects in the coming months.

A selection of images from the latest round of testing can be viewed below.

First Surf Lakes 5 Waves facilities in Australia will be located on the Gold Coast


Surf Lakes Holdings Ltd, the company who introduced its 5 Waves artificial wave making technology to the world in 2018, is able to confirm that one of the first commercial or “open to the public” Surf Lakes 5 Waves facilities in Australia will be located on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Given Robina (Gold Coast, Qld) is Surf Lakes’ “home town”, the company is committed to providing a facility within the Gold Coast region and has been in constant dialogue with local and state government officials with very positive outcomes.

Surf Lakes has been scouring the Gold Coast for suitable land, and at present has selected an appropriate site in a location that is centrally located and easily accessible for residents and tourists.

Newly appointed Surf Lakes Chief Executive Officer, Mal Borgeaud, is genuinely excited at the prospect of bringing Surf Lakes to such a coveted, surf-proud locale and envisions the facility will give great benefit to the community.

“As a company we are tremendously excited to be announcing our commitment to building a facility on the Gold Coast. We have been overwhelmed by the support and encouragement we have received from both Council and the Queensland Government,” said Borgeaud.

“It makes sense, with the Gold Coast being our home town, that we construct a commercial facility here. We know the facility will bring tremendous benefits to the community, not just by providing waves and surf-oriented fun… it will be a boost for employment, tourism and the local economy,” he continued.

“Our aim is to make this site a genuine show piece not only for our technology but for the Gold Coast as well.”

Surf Lakes envisions that construction will begin in late 2019 or early 2020 with a view to opening in the second half of 2020.
