WhiteWater has started its latest project, Europe’s largest Endless Surf Pool, which is now accompanied by visualisations from Munich architects Maisch Wolf Architekten.
Chris Boehm, SURFTOWN MUC CEO, said: “We are thrilled and proud to get closer each day to our dream of surfing near Munich. My sincere thanks go to the municipality of Hallbergmoos, which has accepted the challenges of our forward-thinking project with remarkable pioneering spirit.”
Josef Niedermair, Hallbergmoos mayor, added: “For the municipality, SURFTOWN MUC is a historic opportunity that everyone can benefit from. On a political level, we have done our best to ensure that this extraordinary project can be realised in our town. Once again we are proving that Hallbergmoos is capable of courageous and forward-thinking steps.”
The 180-metre-long surf lagoon is powered by Endless Surf technology. The model is designed to be flexible in terms of operating configurations and customisable wave production, producing a ‘peeling wave’ along its length, resulting in a 20-second ride for surfers.
Michi Mohr, chief surfing officer, said: “At the core of all our planning is the unique surfing experience, which should provide visitors – from absolute novices to Olympians – a safe environment for everything that makes this sport such a passion. And that includes an innovative surf school and coaching concept for beginners, intermediate surfers and pros, in addition to a relaxed and cool ambience and additional outdoor sports facilities.”
The surrounding buildings continue the water theme with a design reflective of a breaking wave. SURFTOWN MUC will provide a facility where professionals, as well as the public, can look forward to a visit with vast recreational value. With a flexible wave height design from 30cm to 2.5 meters, SURFTOWN MUC is even suitable for International Championships.
Paul Chutter, WhiteWater and Endless Surf president, said: “Bringing customisable waves to an already vibrant surf community surrounding the Eisbach River will surely solidify Munich as a surfing hub for Germany and beyond.
“We are incredibly honoured to contribute to this rich surf culture, alongside the dynamic team behind SURFTOWN MUC. This moment marks a huge milestone for us all and we can’t wait to start rolling out Endless Surf waves in Munich.”
