Even with the miserable and cold weather the UK has been experiencing, we are pleased to report, that work at Surf Snowdonia has been galloping along and there have been some exciting developments on site at Dolgarrog. The project is still well on track and due to open in under 6 months, in early July, with testing due to get underway towards the end of May.
The Wavegarden top dogs, have recently visited the project, which sits on the site of a former aluminium factory, and are really pleased with progress to date. Surf Snowdonia themselves are reporting that the steel frames for the buildings that will house the cafe/restaurant, the drying rooms and the changing rooms are now in place and it is here you will also find a 50 metre viewing gallery, that will offer views across the surfing lake.
We are also only a couple of weeks away from seeing the completion of the huge concrete channel where all the Wavegarden magic will happen and this will signify a huge step forward in the project. The water that will fill the huge surfing lake is to be sourced purely from rainwater collected from the Snowdonia region and provided from an abundance of water from four local reservoirs.
In fact the phenomenal progress being made at Surf Snowdonia is also highlighted, by the fact they are recruiting for staff to fill the 60 job positions the Surfing lagoon has created. There are opportunities for lifeguards, surf instructors, maintenance engineers, reception staff and catering staff, as well as the position of Water Operations Manager, who will take on the overall responsibility for all water based operations.
If the idea of any of these jobs appeal to you and you would like to work at the UK’s first inland surf destination, then take a look at the Surf Snowdonia recruitment page. You can also keep up to speed with all the news from Dolgarrog by regularly checking in at the official Surf Snowdonia website.
Are you pleased to hear that the project is well on track and are you getting excited to think we will have our first Surfing lagoon open in under 6 months?
