World’s First Surfing Lake Opening in 2015

23 May 2014

Britain’s first artificial surfing lake is due to open in Snowdonia, Wales next year.

Revolutionary Wavegarden technology means that 2m high waves can now be created at the touch of a button. The mechanical wave is a world first and is set to transform the sport of surfing, giving it the potential to be considered as an Olympic event.

BBC science correspondent Claire Marshall was given exclusive access to the Wavegarden demonstration centre in northern Spain.
