La Vague Grand Paris to feature WhiteWater’s Endless Surf
WhiteWater has launched its latest technology, Endless Surf, to the surfing community. Featuring powerful, efficient, and customizable waves, this inland surf pool technology is backed by WhiteWater’s expertise in aquatic engineering and experience design.
Geoff Chutter, WhiteWater’s CEO, said: “With Endless Surf, we introduce the next generation of surf pool technology. Our goal is to make the world’s best man-made wave, creating an authentic surf experience that enables tens of thousands to discover the thrill of surfing for the first time.”
“Our reliable pneumatic technology,” explained Paul Chutter, chief business development officer of WhiteWater, “creates endless rolling sets, designed for operational success; being flexible, high capacity, and above all else, safe.”
Endless Surf has an organic, heart-shaped pool design. scalable in size, with a width of up to 300-metres (1,000-feet) in a 2-hectare (5-acre) pool and can provide up to a 26 second end-to-end ride. Patent protected proprietary programming, accessed through its Wave Doctor interface, gives the operator the control to change the wave pattern in real-time based on the session requirements and guests in the pool. Importantly, Endless Surf can run multiple wave types at one time so that beginners, intermediates, and experts can surf alongside each other, providing huge operational flexibility.
These were some of the factors that convinced the developers of La Vague Grand Paris to select Endless Surf for their world-class development. La Vague Grand Paris will be an epic entertainment venue comprising of an Endless Surf ES4800 Surf Pool, skate park, family focused aquatic amenities, and an urban boardwalk with restaurants, bars, and retail facilities.
This €250 million ($273 million) development will additionally give back to the community, providing free surfing access for local schools and some social housing as part of the residential development.
