Surf Lakes Wave Technology

Surf Lakes technology represents a revolution in surfing. Surf Lakes works by generating concentric waves that radiate outwards from a central wave generator. Each wave breaks on a variety of submerged reefs and shorelines. Each reef captures the energy of the swell at different points and shapes the resulting wave, thus creating a variety of sizes and shapes of waves.

From beginner to pro Surf Lakes waves will suit any surfer. From beach style rolling waves, pipeline style A-Frame, Kirra style barrels to wedge style barrels our waves are guaranteed to meet every surfing level from beginner right through to pro.

Peaks are important. Our highest peaks can grow to eight feet and vary in between.

Having a variety of peaks and wave sizes allow Surf Lakes to host events such as surf competitions, surf lessons, other water events such as jet ski events, swimming / triathlon events, surf live-saving clubs / training, plus a variety of others.

Providing a Quality, consistent surfing environment

has never been so easy

Based on a conservative hypothetical forecast the potential revenue offerings for surfing when charged per wave are:

• Max 2,400 waves per hr

• Base, on average, 1,200 per hr

• 8 hrs per day = 9,600 waves

• x $5 per wave = $48k per day

• x 300 days per annum = $14.4m

There may a number of potential revenue collection scenarios including:

• Pay by wave

• Pay by hour

• Pay by membership

• Pay by entry to facility

For surfers there are many advantages to surfing at a Surf Lake wave pool like:

• Average wave length 200-260 feet

• Variety of wave types and sizes

• Guaranteed, consistent waves

• Ability to learn and train outside the typical beach front environment

Being a 360 degree facility also allows for varying sports or events to take place simultaneously. By including a Surf Lakes facility in a rounded sports centre, the sky is the limit. As per the Outdoor Industry Association, in the USA alone, around 140 million people regularly participate in outdoor recreational activities and they prove it with their wallets, by spending $646 billion each year in the United States alone.

Additional revenue streams Could Include

  • Entry fee (beach access)
  • Learn to surf schools
  • Night surfing
  • Food & beverage
  • Product sales (boards, fins, wetsuits, clothes)
  • Equipment hire (boards, watercraft, wetsuits)
  • Commercial leasing to third parties (e.g. food vendors)
  • Accommodations
  • Property development
  • Corporate events and conferences
  • Surf competitions
  • School sports program & comps
  • Shoreline activities (e.g. rock climbing, trampolines)
  • Childcare / play center
  • Birthdays / private groups
  • Scuba / Snorkeling / Swimming (wave machine off)
