11 Jun 2013

Wavegarden has officially announced that the new full-scale artificial wave pool is now operational in the Basque Country.

The surf lagoon installation by Wavegarden generates perfectly formed tubing waves that peel for more than 220 meters (720 feet), without losing power or shape.

The new wave is approximately 1.20 meters (4.25 feet) in face-height providing clean barreling rides of 20 seconds duration that do not lose power or shape during the course of their travel. The technology is designed to generate 120 waves per hour with an average power of 270 kW.

It is the longest man-made surfing wave on the planet and promises “quality, shape and speed suitable for the highest levels of performance surfing”.
