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

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.

LEVEL 4

EXPERT

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.

LEVEL 5

PRO

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.

KEY ADVANTAGES OF SURF LAKES XL 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 all skill levels and surf craft.

MOST BEACHFRONT

MOST BEACHFRONT

A standard sized Surf Lakes’ wave park is designed to create at least 800 linear metres of beachfront. This is spread over distinct beaches and can provide operators with excellent retail, entertainment and property development opportunities.

SIMULTANEOUS WAVE VARIETY

SIMULTANEOUS WAVE VARIETY

A Surf Lakes XL facility has been designed to have multiple breaks, simultaneously producing waves for learners through to advanced and pro 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 overall construction costs (excluding surrounds) of approximately US$30m, a Surf Lakes XL facility is designed to generate the best 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 potentially on every side and a perimeter shoreline of over 800 metres, 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 800 metres of 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.
