Wave pools reimagined

Whether you're a beginner or a pro, our wave pools offer something for everyone.

  • Smaller pools: Fast-paced waves with easy access for exhilarating rides.

  • Larger pools: deeper flow for an authentic ocean-like experience.

Wave pools smaller than 40 meters’ diameter have faster water flow similar to the Unit Surf Pool, and have a step-off platform which provides easy access onto the wave for both beginners and advanced surfers.

 

Pools larger than 40 meters’ diameter have slow deeper water flow with paddle-in access identical to the ocean.

 

After extensive research, scale models and testing we are confident that our technology presents the only workable solution for Travelling-Standing category wave pools, and we are confident based on its merits this category will play a big part in the wave pool future.
