About

We’re building Australia’s first surf parks in Melbourne and Sydney to help you surf more perfect waves, more often.

Our Story

Surfing is an iconic Australian sport and pastime, offering an attractive lifestyle, with millions of active participants. But surfing is challenging!

Typically you needed an ocean, and the elements to align (swell, tide, winds, daylight) to score good, let alone perfect waves. And if you want to learn, or are chasing surf, you have to commit time to driving to a coast, checking multiple spots, and be willing to battle crowds and popular breaks. There’s also the risk of marine hazards, including rips, the cold, and hungry monsters of the deep. So what’s the solution?

URBNSURF parks, providing perfect, ocean-like waves in an authentic, safe and controlled environment, catering to all ages and abilities. Starting with URBNSURF Melbourne in Tullamarine, and URBNSURF Sydney at Sydney Olympic Park coming next, our goal is to develop world-class urban surfing locations around Australia, to help everyone to #surfmore.

Who we are

URBNSURF was born in 2012 after our Founder, Andrew Ross, visited Wavegarden’s R&D centre near San Sebastian, Spain. He was blown away by the perfect, consistent and customisable waves being produced among the Pyrenees mountains, miles from the coast.

Recognising the opportunity for surf parks in Australia (which has the highest per capita surfing participation rate in the world), we acquired exclusive rights to Wavegarden technology – including their next-generation Cove design – and have been working towards building Australia’s first urban surf parks (hence the name) ever since.

URBNSURF is a proudly Australian company, with offices in Melbourne and Sydney.
