Even if you are stuck inland in Britain, you can still catch great waves. Thanks to Surf Snowdonia, UK-based surfers, can now enjoy their favorite water activity anytime they want.
Located in North Wales, this man-made lake has been opened recently. It is said that it can produce the longest artificial waves in the world, which are more or less similar to those you see in the ocean. In order to complete this attraction, it took almost a decade to transform this former aluminum factory to a haven for body boarders, kayakers, and surfers.
Built by Wavegarden, this impressive facility measures about one thousand feet long and four hundred feet wide. To create the gigantic waves that are six-and-a-half feet high, Surf Snowdonia uses an underwater plow to roll the waters. As the waves travel the length of the pool, their height changes, creating a more realistic effect.
Other than surfing, guests can also enjoy other activities, such as fine dining and onsite camping.
Sooner though, North Wales will not only be a great surfing spot. Wavegarden aims to build the Nland Surf Park later this year.
