Europe's first commercial Wavegarden Surf Facility will open in the U.K.
Wavegarden, industry leader in the design and manufacture of wave generation systems has signed the official contract with Surf Snowdonia. Britain’s first inland surfing destination will be opened by early summer 2015.
Revolutionary Wavegarden technology means that 1.9m high perfectly formed tubing waves that peel for more than 200 m with a 1 minute frequency can now be created at the touch of a button.
Steve Davies MBE, Managing Director Surf Snowdonia, “We have worked alongside the team at Wavegarden for some time now and are delighted to finally make good on our promise of a partnership."
Josema Odriozola, founder and CEO of Wavegarden, “We are very excited about signing this contract. Our engineers are already working hard on the production of the new 1.9m high version, which features important improvements to the quality, capacity and frequency of the Wavegarden lagoon. Surf Snowdonia will definitely revolutionise the village of Dolgarrog located in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and the way people around the world engage in surfing."
BBC science correspondent Claire Marshall was given access to the Wavegarden demonstration centre in northern Spain and to the Dolgarrog aluminium works were the new Wavegarden will be installed. Click here to see the story.
