[WORLDKINGS] The Constant World Records Seeking Journey (P.301) Surf Snowdonia (Wales): World's first commercial artificial surfing lake

02-06-2022

(kyluc.vn – worldkings.org) Surf Snowdonia is an adventure park incorporating with the world's first commercial artificial surfing lake at Dolgarrog, north Wales. On June 2nd, 2022, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Surf Snowdonia as the "World's first commercial artificial surfing lake".

Based on the world record nomination from Europe Records Institute (EURI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/854/2022/No.311, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Surf Snowdonia as the "World's first commercial artificial surfing lake".

Surf Snowdonia has a freshwater pool which contains a wave-generation mechanism, manufactured by the Leitner Group, and based on a prototype built in San Sebastián, Spain, by the Spanish company Wavegarden. It has a contoured base that can generate three different sized waves, at a rate of one a minute. The company claims this is the longest man-made surf wave in the world.

The pool is 300 metres long and 110 metres wide, containing a total of six million gallons of water. A bi-directional snowplough-shaped wave-generation mechanism, towed on a cable between the two central towers, moves up and down the pool on a three-rail track, generating the waves. The underwater machinery, powered by a 2MW motor, is covered with a protective stainless steel netted screen, to keep surfers from any moving parts, yet without impairing the energy of the waves.

The pool is filled with rainwater collected from Snowdonia reservoirs, the water is cleaned and cycled every 24 hours by passing through ultraviolet cleaners, so that the water can be chlorine-free.

Visitors can choose to take surfing lessons with expert instructors, experience surfing and enjoy other facilities such as hotels, spas, barbecues, and more.
