The capital of New South Wales will have a Wavegarden surf pool by 2018.
There are roughly 200,000 surfers in Sydney. The new man-made wave park will be built at Sydney Olympic Park, and the entire structure will occupy an area of 3.2 hectares on an abandoned car park located near ANZ Stadium.
Urbnsurf Sydney will be Australia's second artificial surf pool. The first announcement made by the Wave Park Group was Urbnsurf Melbourne, a project that will be concluded and ready to pump waves by 2017.
Chris Zaffis conquered the Mentawai Pro 2016, held at the iconic pointbreak of Lance's Right, in the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia.
The Australian surfer won his maiden Qualifying Series event after defeating Dede Suryana in flawless four-to-six-foot barrels. Zaffis scored 19.25 points against Suryana's 18.00 points.
"I'm so lost for words. I can't believe I just won a QS in such pumping barrels. I don't think I've ever surfed waves as good as that in my life so to surf like that in a comp is mind boggling - waves don't get better than that," expressed Chris Zaffis.
