URBNSURF Melbourne is Australia’s first urban surf park, that helps people of all ages and abilities to surf more and surf better. Located just 23 minutes from the CBD and a short distance from Melbourne Airport, URBNSURF is Tullamarine’s newest and most consistent surf spot.
Surfing is an iconic Australian sport and pastime, offering an attractive lifestyle with millions of active participants. But surfing is challenging!
Typically you need an ocean and the elements to align (swell, tide, winds, daylight) to score good, let alone perfect waves. And if you want to learn or are chasing surf, you have to commit time to drive to the coast, check multiple spots, and be willing to battle crowds at popular breaks. There’s also the risk of marine hazards, including rips, the cold, and hungry monsters of the deep. So what’s the solution?
URBNSURF provides a two-hectare surfing lagoon powered by technology developed by the Spanish engineering firm Wavegarden, creating ocean-like waves in an authentic, safe and controlled environment.
URBNSURF offers a range of speciality programs:
- Surf Sessions
