Wave Loch unique selling points

WAVE LOCH presents: SurfPool™


Real waves for real surfing

Wave Loch is the world leader in developing artificial surf technologies. 25 years ago, our FlowRider sheet-wave technology took off to change an industry and created the new sport of flowboarding in the process. Our FlowRider sheet-wave attraction has been sold in over 180 installations in over 30 countries around the world since 1991. We built something new, created a sport and changed the industry forever.

We are proud of our history, but we're stoked about the future.

Our dream is a reality now. We are proud to present the Wave Loch SurfPool™, the world’s first money-making wave pool.

How is this different from other wave pools?

Here is why our SurfPool™ is the best wave pool in the market today:

  1. Adjustable control over the wave shape = real surfing that can be customized for the rider level or type of event.
  2. Most waves per minute (up to 8 waves per minute) = best ROI in the industry.
  3. Multiple reefs = multiple revenue streams.  More riders for the same cost in wave-creation-energy. Better profit margins and ROI.
  4. Precision designed reefs = clean, ride-able waves; consistent quality =  repeat business.
  5. A wave dampening system for endless operation without backwash or parasitic waves so quality is consistently high and repeatable.  An "Endless Summer" is finally a reality!


Since 1991, Wave Loch has been on a mission to ‘Wave the Planet’ with a broad range of wave-making products:

Sheet Waves • Surf Pools • Wave Pools & Flying Reefs


Flowing water is a symbol for wealth and prosperity in Feng Shui, and that symbolism manifests itself at Wave Loch. Since 1991, Wave Loch has been flowing water and customer profits with an increasingly sophisticated line of artificial waves; sheet waves, and surfing wave pools.

A La Jolla, California based company founded by a surfer and run by wave-riders, Wave Loch packages the power, speed and challenge of ocean waves and delivers that package as fast and furious as 250,000 gallons a minute at 30 MPH.

As the originating product line, Wave Loch’s proprietary sheet wave technology uses submersible pumps to create non-stop, flowing and curling waves over a soft-padded surface in an enclosed system measured in square feet, not surface acres.

Around the world, from Alabama to China to South Africa, there are Wave Loch sheet waves - a.k.a. “FlowRider” - on the stern of cruise ships, indoors at retail malls, at an Army rehab facility, in the back yards of Texas billionaires and Arabian sultans, and at more than 100 water parks, swim centers, municipalities, theme parks, hotels, resorts and private homes around the world.


Wave Loch sheet waves are the center attraction at public and private facilities around the world, but they are also at the center of the growing archipelago of Wave Houses around the world. Wave House is a complete entertainment, food and beverage, live music and retail complex which exports the tropical, California beach and board sport lifestyle to anywhere in the world that needs fun. As of 2015 the Wave House archipelago includes San Diego, Sentosa, Mallorca, Santiago and Durban, with upcoming locations in China. There are an additional half dozen Wave Houses in development all over the world.

It’s a simple equation propelling the ever-expanding growth of Wave Loch sheet waves and the Wave House archipelago. At the core of all of this, Wave Loch’s FlowRider ® and FlowBarrel ® sheet waves, simply put, are a blast to ride – fun, challenging, addicting. Unlike most water park attractions - where guests are basically going headfirst propelled by gravity – there is a degree of difficulty and challenge in Wave Loch sheet waves which inspires adrenaline, loyalty, repetition and profits.

People just love riding the FlowRider: jumping in on bodyboards, getting a feel for it, doing turns, wiping out, getting knocked down and getting back on again to throw spray at their friends. It takes time to get the FlowRider figured out, but just as riders are getting cocky, a newer, more powerful and more challenging ride awaits them in the form of the FlowBarrel.

Wave Loch was started by surfers, but the new sport we have developed takes in aspects of all the board sports. Flowboarding is skateboarding without the wheels (and the road rash), surfing without a fin, snowboarding without the mountain, wakeboarding without the boat and skimboarding without the sand. There are flowboarding competitions around the United States and around the world, as new facilities open every month with a Wave Loch artificial wave innovation.
