Surf’s up at new indoor wave pool

December 29, 2017 by  

Surfing enthusiasts from Balcatta will be in their element at nearby Joondalup’s latest attraction, an indoor wave pool.

The first of its kind in Australia, Aloha Surfhouse has introduced Surfstream technology, a product of American Wave Machines, to provide local surfers with a unique indoor wave-riding experience.

Adam Blackwood, Aloha Surfhouse Director, said that while many Australian surfers are aware of flow-rider technology, likened to skim boarding, this latest technology is a first for Australia. He said:

“The American wave-machine technology that we’re using is very different; it’s got deep-water so the surfboards require fins, making it more like real surfing than just skim boarding.”

The technology, he said, gives learners more time to determine how to turn and foot positions while also providing a permanent never-ending wave wall of up to 1.82 metres for experienced riders to refine skills and fine-tune their style.

In addition to the wave pool, the site will also offer a café, retail boutique, a corporate room and two themed children’s party rooms for events, and yoga studio providing 30 plus classes each week, all of which will be featured on future brochure printing to advertise the venue.

Mr Blackwood said the 1500sqm warehouse in Winton Road will also feature the state’s first indoor Clip `n’ Climb rock climbing:

“It’s a fun take on rock climbing and features a leap of faith, giant slide and race walls.”
