The second event of the UK pro Surf tour was recently held at the Surf Snowdonia activity park, North Wales.
Yes, it’s a man made wave, created using an energy efficient giant plough that drives down the centre of a giant lagoon (the size of 6 football pitches side by side)
The effect of the machine causes a head high wake that breaks very similar to a real wave due to the depth of water and the angle of the wave.
The wave has been designed for surfers of all abilities including beginners so there’s something there for everyone to get their kicks.
An ideal location to host an event for the UK’s top surfers to showcase their skills in a compact area for the spectators to view and judges to score.
Sam made the quarter finals, finishing equal 5th, just like he did in the first event (At watergate Bay, Newquay) which leaves him currently ranked number 5 on the UK leaderboard.
