Watch: URNBSURF set to reopen
After being forced to close in March, URBNSURF will reopen this Friday the 19th June.
It's a partial opening - no surf lessons or spectators - but fortunately for surfers the pool will be running at almost full speed. All sessions will be run on 'The Point' with individual sessions set to either Cruiser, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert settings.
For Cruiser, Intermediate, and Advanced sessions there'll be 18 surfers per side, but this drops to 12 for the Expert setting to increase the wave rate - and yep, it barrels.
URBNSURF made use of the enforced downtime. “During our closure we completed our winter maintenance early," says Founder Andrew Ross, "so the park is looking incredible, and the lagoon is an idyllic, crystalline blue.”
"We’re delighted to offer two new surf sessions featuring a range of new waves," added Andrew. "Our new Cruiser sessions are designed for surfers who love riding a longboard, mini-mal, or fish in peeling pointbreak conditions like Point Roadknight. And if you chase slabbing barrels, then our Expert sessions will serve up variations of our infamous Beast mode, with limited spots in the lineup to maximise safety and wave count."
