SURF LAKES STANDARD MODEL

Surf Lakes has invented a revolutionary, proprietary method of producing high-quality surfing waves in a controlled lake environment. By sending large concentric waves over separate reef breaks, a Surf Lakes facility is capable of producing up to 2000 waves per hour. Each wave varies in size, shape and length, and while appealing mainly to the beginner to intermediate surfer, the venue will also be challenging for advanced surfers if required. The science and engineering behind Surf Lakes is truly revolutionary. Unique bathymetric designs of our pool floor mimic nature and help to produce ocean-like waves. The floor design interacts with our patented wave mechanism where one central swell generates up to eight separate waves to the surrounding reefs and beach breaks. Surf Lakes facilities are similar to a ski resort, with waves colour-coded based on their level of difficulty. Beginners can feel safe and secure knowing which waves to surf as they learn and improve their skills, in a controlled environment. The beauty of our design means you don’t have to wait for a specific session that suits you. We produce waves that suit all levels of ability simultaneously.

Surf Lakes at present has two products, each designed to appeal to different markets and also suit varying locations. The two models include the Surf Lakes standard model and the Surf Lakes XL model. Surf Lakes standard, included here in this brochure has a smaller footprint and is designed to cater for the beginner to intermediate markets. The smaller footprint will allow for Surf Lakes standard models to be built in areas where larger parcels of land are scarce. And with a smaller price tag, while still producing up to 2000 waves per hour, the potential for optimum ROI is at a premium.

WAVES FOR ALL ABILITIES

LEVEL 1

BEGINNER

The Beginners area is the white-water area that rolls through the inside of the reefs. Beginners can learn to paddle, catch waves and stand up.

LEVEL 2

INTERMEDIATE

The Intermediate wave is a rolling beach break – a gentle wave that’s easy to catch, ride and learn to do turns. This wave is also suitable for longboarders.

LEVEL 3

ADVANCED

The Advanced wave is a slightly larger wave, with a steeper take-off and more critical sections for advanced turns as well as aerial manoeuvres.

KEY ADVANTAGES OF SURF LAKES STANDARD MODEL

HIGH WAVE PRODUCTION LEVELS AVAILABLE

HIGH WAVE PRODUCTION LEVELS AVAILABLE

Surf Lakes’ technology is designed to potentially produce over 2000 waves per hour suitable for beginner to advanced level surfers.

ROOF COVERING OPTIONS

ROOF COVERING OPTIONS

Being a smaller footprint and with less capital expense the RESORT facility is ideal for indoor venues and/or roof coverings. This allows for climate control and all year round operation.

SIMULTANEOUS WAVE VARIETY

SIMULTANEOUS WAVE VARIETY

A Surf Lakes facility has been designed to have multiple breaks, simultaneously producing waves for learners through to advanced surfers. Competitor technology requires the wave generator to be adjusted to suit a particular level of surfer.

EFFICIENT

EFFICIENT

Surf Lakes’ technology is designed to maximise the return on energy spend. Each swell pulse turns into ten separate waves, maximising customer participation and throughput.

CREATIVE DESIGNS

CREATIVE DESIGNS

A key advantage of Surf Lakes’ technology is its ability to be designed in a layout of your choice. Themes for a site are limitless.

REALISTIC SURFING EXPERIENCE

REALISTIC SURFING EXPERIENCE

Surf Lakes’ technology mimics ocean ground swells, with waves coming in sets of two to six, where waves break over specially shaped reefs. Moreover surfing towards the beach offers the most natural surfing environment possible – no sight of walls, cages or mechanisms nearby.

MAXIMIMUM RETURN ON CAPITAL INVESTED

MAXIMIMUM RETURN ON CAPITAL INVESTED

With lower overall construction costs (excluding surrounds) than the full sized XL model, of approximately US$20m, a Surf Lakes standard facility still boasts 2000 waves per hour therefore is designed to generate excellent available return on capital invested.

LOW SETTLEMENT TIME

LOW SETTLEMENT TIME

Due to the unique reef design of Surf Lakes, the waves are not affected by backwash from the shoreline or walls.

MAXIMUM CROWD NUMBERS

MAXIMUM CROWD NUMBERS

With shore breaks on every side, more learners, swimmers and bodysurfers will be able to enjoy a Surf Lakes facility at the same time as the main breaks are being surfed. This naturally increases the crowd numbers and revenue potential for the operator.

BEST PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL

BEST PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL

The shoreline allows for property development opportunities where every beachfront is looking into the waves. It also allows operators to segment the park into separate areas, further maximising the site and usage.
