The worlds largest surf park is now open in South Korea, and it’s powered by Wavegarden.
Wavegarden’s new facility looks so fun to ride and seems even more exciting given the scale – Wave Park, Asia’s largest wave pool, was officially opened with a formal ceremony and an epic testing surf session in Siheung, South Korea. The centerpiece of Wave Park, a mixed-use real estate development, features the world’s largest Wavegarden Cove surfing lagoon.
This video showcases the incredible air tricks that Jacob “Zeke” Szekely has been stomping in South Korea – while wildly impressive, these tricks aren’t exactly relatable to the everyday surfer.
Within the surf park and wave pool facilities, the project offers over 20 different wave types ranging from small knee-high beginner waves to long and steep barrels for more advanced surfers. This facility also features an expert-level air maneuver section, to allow for the best caliber aerial surfers to come and test their skills. Read more on Wavegarden.com
But this human-made point break of surfing perfection is part of the World’s Largest Surf Park – and it’s no small piece of news that it’s in South Koreas. This facility is the stuff of every surfers’ dream, and seems to be the ideal place for intermediate and advanced surfers to progress quickly. Three waves, breaking back-to-back-to-back, offering a wedge, wall, air section and tube. What else could you ask for?
These videos give you an idea of just how large the facility is at Wave Park — the biggest Wavegarden currently in operation, and the largest overall surf park anywhere in the world at the moment.
More about Wavegarden Cove Technology:
In a feature unique to the Wavegarden Cove, wave shape and size can be adjusted at the push of a button, simply by changing the mode function on the control unit software.
The patented technology of the Cove is modular. Each module moves in a harmonious sequence to produce perfect swells, while continually injecting energy into the waves as they move forward. The length of the ride depends on the number of modules; more modules can be added to extend the wave’s length.
This groundbreaking technology replicates the exact water particle movement of ocean ground swells; there are no secondary waves that can negatively affect the quality of subsequent waves. With little energy lost in the transmission of forces from the machinery to the water, efficiency levels could not be any higher.
