SURF LAKES LAUNCHES NEW REDUCED SIZE MODEL TO TARGET SUBURBAN POPULATIONS
As we see the demand for artificial wave facilities continuing to grow, we proud to announce the launch of a new product model designed to suit reduced-sized footprints and with a view to targeting the beginner to intermediate surfing market.
While still producing up to 2000 waves per hour (like its “larger sibling” formerly 5 Waves now known as the Surf Lakes XL model) the new Surf Lakes model requires only two hectares (five acres) of land for construction, therefore has the potential to be built in areas closer to higher population densities where larger land holdings may be limited.
“We’ve had close to 600 enquiries from all areas of the planet,” said CEO Aaron Trevis. “And while they all love the idea of building a Surf Lake XL model, many sites are just not large enough to cater for the 3.6 hectare lake.
“There is also a huge opportunity to really penetrate the non-surfing market places by locating near shopping malls and local sports fields and therefore we can share the stoke of riding waves by making facilities that are more accessible to all.”
The Surf Lakes standard model will also have a lower price tag. This lowers the barrier to entry for developers and also potentially allows for a quicker return on the investment, given that the wave making potential is still at 2000 waves per hour and therefore people throughput is at a premium.
