SURF X – SURFPARK WAVEPOOL
A team of surf enthusiasts and entrepreneurs are working on bringing a surf and leisure destination to the Midlands. Traditionally the landlocked area of the country it isn’t the first place you would think of for surfing, but the demand from the leisure market, combined with the need for these types of Olympic size training facilities will provide year round opportunities for millions of people to get involved in, supporting healthier lifestyles and promoting positive social impacts. Increasing tourism, job creation, community programs and boosting the local economy.
The main attraction will be a £25-million-pound wave pool using the 5-wave technology from Surf Lakes, which produces the largest waves, highest productivity and variety on the market. The 25-acre facility is set to include a number of Olympic activities, skateboarding, health-spas, gyms, co-working spaces, family retreats, entertainment, events and commercial developments. The wave technology produces over 2000 waves an hour with 200 surfers in the water, to suit all levels. And more fun activities, bodyboarding, bmx, stand up paddling, bodysurfing, and much more.
