You might have already heard about the prototype Wavegarden in Spain, but now progress has been made in the UK with a Wavegarden gaining planning permission in North wales. This means the road ahead is clear for building, and you can see the prototype in Spain demoed with a video below this article.
During the video you’ll see the hand-held control panel being demonstrated and with a push of a button, 4ft waves can be summoned with another formed around every 60 seconds. The control panel will also offer a lot of insight about each wave with stats for temperature, speed, shape, and height.
It’s pretty impressive to think that the mountains of North Wales could be where you’ll be surfing soon, thanks to the inland surf lake, which will be over three times the size of a football pitch.
We should point out that the Snowdonia team will be looking to create a similar Wavegarden in Bristol. Currently they’re waiting for planning permission at The Wave in Bristol, although we hear the decision should only be a matter of days away.
Take a look at the video below, then let us know if you like the idea of a UK Wavegarden?
