The first resort in Southeast Asia to include a deep water standing wave machine will be built in China.

American Wave Machines (AWM) will install their SurfStream artificial wave model at the Hainan Qizibay Grand New Century Resort, scheduled to open in Hainan, in September, 2015.

The Surfstream offers up to seven different wave types for all surfing skill levels. In this surf pool, surfers can use real surfboards with fins on a deep cushion of water that creates an endless wave.

The wave size, shape and type is fully adjustable, and it can be installed indoor or outdoor. Bodyboarders and bodysurfers can also use Surfstream.

"Surfing and high-quality wave machines appeal to a broad demographic spectrum. The crowds that have been drawn to ride a SurfStream or watch others have been overwhelming in every setting so far. This will be another great location, and we are excited to bring a unique and desired experience to a unique and desired resort," explains Robert Reynolds, COO at American Wave Machines.

The surfing capital of China will be the first resort in China to include a SurfStream. The surf pool company has five models that deliver between 2.5 and 6-foot waves.

The push through, or punch through technique allows surfers to get past a small broken wave and reach the lineup without having to duck dive or turtle roll.
