Surf Lakes contracted Australian engineering firm Engenuity Solutions to build a 5 Waves prototype in Yeppoon, Queensland. It’s currently the world’s largest wave pool and consists of a piston-shaped, wave-generating mechanism with a metal donut attached in the middle. This compressed air-powered system’s metal donut rises as air is pumped into it, then plunges down into the water as it’s released, generating waves.

The donut shape allows for the generated waves to spread out in all directions, accommodating more surfers, rather than have them group together in one area. Even crazier, the machine can produce waves up to 8-feet in height.
- Water blasting Fortnite replica blaster: the Fortnite RL water blaster is inspired by the blaster used in in Fortnite, capturing the look and colors of the one in the popular video game
- Extreme soakage: drench opponents with extreme soakage from the Nerf Super Soaker Fortnite water blaster that holds up to 9.3 fluid ounces (275 milliliters) of water
- Easy to fill, easy to fire: immerse the front of the blaster in water and pull the handle back to fill the tank, then push in the handle to unleash a huge stream of water at your targets
We need to ensure the wave machine can deliver hundreds of millions of waves every year for decades for people to enjoy, and for surf park owners to confidently build businesses and developments around,” says Dr. Chris Hawley, managing director of Engenuity Solutions.
