The World’s Largest Wave Pool with 5 Wave Technology.

Surfing For Everyone.

The Surf Lakes Solution.

Surf Lakes has developed exciting wave-making technology, using concentric waves. Our technology is capable of producing a variety of waves shapes, ride lengths with varying degrees of difficulty that closely mimic natural ocean waves.

These elements, plus more, position Surf Lakes as a very unique and incredibly exciting opportunity.

• Up to 2,400 waves per hour
• Eight separate breaks (four left breaking waves and four right)
• Peak wave height of 2.4 metres at premier break (eight feet face height)
• The unique 5 Waves system caters for five levels of surfing from beginner to pro simultaneously
• Can facilitate up to 240 surfers at the same time, each catching 10 waves per hour

Current Locations:

Ground Zero

Research & Development Site

Construction of the full-scale prototype/research and development site was completed and hosted Phase One testing in October 2018.

Phase Two testing has been taking place since June 2019. The team have been pushing the technology to utilize full stroke of the machine which also increases wave size and length.

Gold Coast

Global Leading Surf Region

World Class Surf Breaks | 3 National Surfing Reserves

As the only Australian surf/wavepool technology company – it made sense, from a strategic and practical perspective for Surf Lakes to establish our global head office on the Gold Coast.

On the 26th Feb 2019, it was announced that we will retain the Gold Coast as a company owned territory, rather than licensing it off to a third party. Within this area we intend to develop our own full scale, commercial “Surf Lakes 5 Waves” facility.

Surf Lakes’ 5 Waves technology will allow for the development of multi-directional surf park, where waves appealing to five different skill levels (beginner to professional) are created simultaneously. This allows for surfers of all abilities to surf at once.

Surf Lakes technology allows for beginners to be riding one break while a pro competition is being conducted at another. Other technologies are limited in this capacity. For Surf Lakes operators, it means maximum options and flexibility for usage. Operators can divide surfers into several groups based on their skill level. A surfer’s skill level will determine which breaks he or she is allowed to surf on at a 5 Waves facility.

The advantages of the central mechanism are numerous and the design creates a massive advantage over other wave generating techniques. Some highlights are:

  • Waves in all directions, over multiple breaks giving highest available productivity.
  • Waves in all directions, over multiple reefs giving highest available simultaneous variety.
  • Efficiency of movement, allowing the mechanism to move in harmony with the water.
  • Limited (or zero) friction during operation, as the central alignment creates zero (or negligible) lateral forces.
  • Flexibility of lake design and layout, allowing multiple shape options for shorelines.
  • Attractiveness of the lake, with the central mechanism able to be themed in various ways, as an exposed, moving feature or enclosed feature.
  • Concentric swells reduce in energy as they propagate away from the central mechanism, allowing various waves sizes and power at different points in the lake.
  • Deep core and channel excavations create benefits for water volume (swimmer load) in some cases, and allows added amenity such as diving, aquariums, underwater viewing portals etc.
  • Wind direction can be used to advantage, whichever direction it blows.
  • Maximum use of real estate, by creating shoreline in 360 degrees.
  • The Multiple breaks allow flexibility of business models, from private to public and each can co-exist.
  • The design allows for maximum benefit for competitions, as there are 8 breaks to choose, allowing the public to still participate during the competition, and competitors to practice between heats, or all waves can be utilized during heats for new formats.
