Mark “Occy” Occhilupo does an on-site interview with Aaron Trevis from Surf Lakes to give us our first real-life glimpse at what the Surf Lakes prototype looks like in full scale. The always interesting Occy talks about “Occy’s Peak”- a 7-8 foot barreling left-hander as well as the other peaks ranging from a beginner “beach break” to rippable point breaks.
Apart from gauging the size of the Surf Lakes prototype based on the visual aspect, we get an idea of just how big this area is when Aaron says that effectively someone could be getting barreled on one side of the lake while their buddy is hooting them on from the other side and they wouldn’t be able to hear them.. That’s a big surf park!
Their getting close to assembling the main wave generating component of the machine. In the video, you’ll see where this assembly will be placed in the lake and the surrounding eight peaks.
The lake is set in an incredible location, surrounded by mountains. An unlikely place for a world-class wave, let alone eight of them.
Wondering how you could be a part of bringing a Surf Lakes wave park to your area? We have great information on licensing opportunities for the technology. Surf Lakes builds and maintains the machine while the licensees focus on their business side of the park.
