Melbourne Airport will be home to Australia's first surf park, pumping out 1000 waves every hour. Travellers will soon be able to 'hang ten' without missing their flight when Australia's first surf park is opened at Melbourne Airport. Located just minutes from the airport's departure and arrival terminals, the park will be roughly the same size as the MCG and capable of pumping out 1000 two-metre waves every hour. Construction begins on Thursday, with the first surfers expected to hit the waves in early 2019. The lagoon, made up of six different zones, will deliver authentic and safe waves for surfers of all skill levels, all year round, URBNSURF founder Andrew Ross said. "(We're) unlocking the geographic limitations of surfing...

Australians have heard it all before: “The Wavepools are coming!” “The Wavepools are coming!” “To Melbourne! “To Sydney!” The rumors swirl. There’s been talk, talk, talk for years, of a wavepool on Australian soil. So many announcements and still no pools to surf in. Understandably our excitement levels began to dwindle. We stopped opening URBNSURF's press release emails. We needed something concrete to rekindle the hope. Now, in 2018, our artificial wet-dreams are becoming a reality. Investor wallets have opened, contractors have been hired and the lagoon site is cleared for takeoff. URBNSURF will be building the world's first full-sized Wavegarden "Cove” in Tullamarine, Melbourne. And construction is starting in one week. The design of the pool in Melbourne is based on Wavegarden's "Cove" in...

BELLS Beach to a backyard in Tullamarine — Australia’s first surf park is set make waves, mimicking Victoria’s best breaks. Construction of the $20 million project will take off next month, after final approval was given to a new hi-tech wavegarden cove. Waving goodbye to airport boredom, the baseball triangle shaped lagoon is the same size as two MCG’s, has six different surfing zones, 1000 ocean-like waves are flushed every hour and surfers can use shortboards, longboards, bodyboards, kneeboards, and stand-up paddleboards. Inspiration for the various surf breaks were taken from the iconic Bells Beach, Winki Pop, Phillip Island, Point Roadknight and as far as Waikiki. Waves at URBNSURF Melbourne have the ability to be dialled up to 2m, but...
