Surf Snowdonia in North Wales

UK surfers now have a new place to catch some waves in North Wales, as there’s a new inland surf park that claims to produce the “longest man-made surfable waves on the planet.”

Surf Snowdania uses a snow plow-like machine to create the waves, which moves back and forth along an underwater track that stretches from one end of the lagoon to the other. As the machine moves, it creates large waves on each side of the divider, which sits in the center of the water. The speed and size of the waves that are produced are controlled from a computer, with heights ranging from two feet to over six and a half feet. The park can support up to 36 surfers in the lagoon at once, with one wave being produced every minute. A similar project is being constructed in Austin, Texas, although there’s no word on when it will open. Check out the video below.
