The new surfing lagoon, built in the Basque Country, generates perfectly formed tubing waves that peel for more than 220 m (720 feet) without losing power or shape. It is the longest artificial surfing wave in existence, and the wave quality, shape and speed are suitable for the highest levels of performance surfing.
Commenting on this release, the CEO of Wavegarden, Mr José Manuel Odriozola said:
“We are delighted to be able to reveal to the surfing world our new demonstration facility, which we expect to revolutionize the way people engage in surfing. “Historically, participation in surfing has been limited due to the fact that it is required to be undertaken at specific coastal locations, in daylight hours and is highly dependent upon appropriate swell and weather conditions. With the development of the Wavegarden, we now have the ability to provide an authentic surfing experience in any location capable
of sitting a lagoon.”
