The dream of the founder, Aaron Trevis, grew for many years from a seed of thought to the point where he felt compelled to act. He had to know if the idea of a concentric wave machine would work as he thought and if so, would the world get excited about the opportunity?This question has now been answered. After small scale prototyping to prove the concept, Aaron Trevis, Chris Hawley and Reuben Buchanan formed Surf Lakes Holding Ltd and along with Wayne Dart, Kit Sidwell and a growing team, set about raising the capital needed to build a full-scale prototype, to prove to the world that the 5 Waves technology could indeed produce a variety of waves so that “Everyone Gets a Break”.This motto kept the passion burning through countless long days, funding troubles, failures, engineering difficulties, contractual challenges, and often sheer exhaustion, until finally in October 2018, the first waves rolled out for surfing. By this time they had been joined by former world champions Mark “Occy” Occhilupo and Barton Lynch. The surfing community were thrilled about the first wave pool in Australia to deliver waves to surf, with Occy and Barton joined by a collection of Aussie pro surfers to test it out. Whilst the machine worked very well, the waves did not reach full size before a mechanical issues caused testing to cease. Even so, the 1.8m high waves proved the point. Surf Lakes 5 Waves system had worked and worked very well. The videos and media response from Phase 1 testing were viewed by millions and all were excited about the potential of Surf Lakes 5 Waves technology. Once the company has repaired the prototype Phase 2 testing will commence.
