Surfers from North Wales, UK now have a new place to call home: Surf Snowdania. Touted as the world’s largest wave garden, this surf park also produces the “longest man-made surfable waves on the planet.” Employees use a snow plow-like machine to create waves that sway back and forth along an underwater track stretching from one end to the other. As the machine moves, large waves appear on each side of the centered divider. A computer controls both speed and size, with heights ranging from 2-feet to over 6.5-feet. The park can support up to 36 simultaneous surfers at once, producing one wave every minute. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“Surf Snowdonia, the world’s first public artificial wave pool, will host the Red Bull Unleashed 2015, between 18th and 19th September. The Welsh surfing stadium located in Dolgarrog is debuting a completely new format for competitive surfing, only possible in a spot where waves are produced by humans. Surfers will ride, wave for wave, against each other, in best of five, matchplay-style clashes to decide who advances. The competition will have 24 surfers battling for consecutive victories until two riders reach the final,” reports Surfer Today.
