SURF LAKES XL
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 XL facility is capable of producing over 2000 waves per hour. Each wave varies in size, shape and length, allowing surfers of all abilities to surf at once.
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 10 separate waves to the surrounding reefs and beach breaks. Surf Lakes XL 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 con- trolled 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 market places and also suit varying locations. The two models include the Surf Lakes standard model and the Surf Lakes XL model. Surf Lakes XL, included here in this brochure has a larger footprint and is designed to cater for the beginner through to pro markets and be capable of catering for large international events such as The Olympics. The larger footprint will allow for Surf Lakes XL models to built with the notion of becoming a premium surf destination or resort appealing to the first timer, families and also the hard core surfer. With the potential to house five levels of ability simultaneously potential wave shapes can include:
WAVES FOR ALL ABILITIES
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.
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.
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.
The Expert break has a five second barrel, followed by a section for advanced turns. The size, speed and power of this break is suitable for competitions and events.
The Pro break is a heavy slab, suitable for high level surfers and bodyboarders. It features a steep, difficult take-off with a fast, heavy barrel.
