It’s time to shake off the last year. An ambitious $50 million dollar artificial surf park is coming to Western Sydney. Construction is officially underway with the park on track to open early next year. Similar to it’s Melbourne counterpart, Urbnsurf Sydney will feature a diamond-shaped surf lagoon that will be driven by a modern and innovative Wavegarden “Cove” technology which enables the facility to generate two-meter-high waves every eight seconds.
Their website states:
“Sydney is blessed with a large number of surfing beaches, but access to those beaches and crowding in the line-up is becoming an increasing issue. URBNSURF Sydney will provide an authentic alternative to ocean-based surfing for Sydney residents and visitors to #surfmore safely, easily and often.”
Urbnsurf is set to cater to all levels from beginners to experts, you will also have access to a fully staffed surf academy on the venue, if you want to get some hands on training.
The 3.6-hectare lagoon won’t just provide the goods during the day. Thanks to LED lighting, the man made surf park will dazzle and shine after hours too, with options to dip your toes in post-work.
Other Urbnsurf Sydney highlights include two restaurants and exclusive working spaces, a rooftop bar perfect for late summer evenings, a family friendly pool for a fun day out with the kids, a surf park and a children’s playground.
Also in the offing is a yoga studio if you’re keen to work up a sweat and hot tubs to recalibrate in.
Conveniently located only 30 minutes from the CBD at the Sydney Olympic Park, Urbnsurf Sydney is gearing up to welcome over 300,000 surfers a year, breathing fresh life to Western Sydney. If all goes according to plan, you could experience the surf park as soon as early 2022.
