"SURF LAKES

Surf Lakes Limited has invented a revolutionary, proprietary method of produce high quality surfing waves in a controlled lake environment. The Surf Lakes™ technology will be capable of producing a variety of waves that closely mimic natural ocean waves. Furthermore, because of the way Surf Lakes works, not only will it have the lowest energy cost per wave compared to other technologies, but be capable of producing up to 2,400 surfable waves per hour. This is over 20 times more than any current or proposed wave technology around the world.

The company have built several large prototypes and will soon commence construction of a full scale lake in 2017.

Due to many limiting factors, less than 1% of the worlds population has ever surfed. By creating perfect waves, on demand 24/7 and delivering them to the masses globally, Surf Lakes has an exciting future. And with surfing admitted to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, the potential for Surf Lakes globally is significant."

No, a long way to go yet with this one. The proof of concept has to be built. Hence looking for investors.
Concept is interesting and most likely aimed for fun parks - that's the largest target group.

TBB...I've heard some talk to the same effect...a partially govt funded via Surfing Australia Slater wavepool in Tweed with a purpose to work in tandem with the HPC in preparation for 2020 Olympics...
Tell me it ain't so...

How good would it feel as a taxpayer to pay for a man made wave that you weren't allowed to surf ?

Apparently it will be open to the public but Surfing Australia have obviously hitched their gravy train wagon to the Olympic hoo-ha...

Maybe Northcoast TV news got crosswired on Tuesday night...Sorry Guys! (Pool's on hold!)
Same TV News(Tonight)+Tweed Daily News (Today Friday 22nd Dec) revealed a new story.
It could be a surf reserve proposal for a legendary Northern NSW bigtime surfbreak....?

I won't reveal more cause I reckon Swellnet are onto this + Local skegz are keen to shout it.
Same region does have other fresh news about north coast shark nets/drones.
Busy year on North Coast with councils barricading Super Heroes surf spots.

Silly Seasonings Neighbours! Happy double New Year to you too.

With a bit of luck , the Fed Govt will shut down the HPSC , and withdraw funding for the Olympics as the KPI's say that's what is destroying Australia's Competition Surfing Culture , so enough with the pools , especially Kelly's (25M$ USD just for a license!
