La Ola Movistar: great for flat days

The capital city of Peru, Lima, has debuted the world's largest surfable standing wave machine at Boulevard de Asia. "La Ola Movistar" has multiple wave modes, left and right rides, barrels, standing waves, and a surf training wave.

The first surf arena was developed by American Wave Machines, a US company.

Goofy and regular foot riders, from beginning to intermediate levels, can now enjoy the best artificial wave experience.

The Peruvian National Surfing squad and more than 1500 surfers have already tested the new surf gadget.

"It’s different, but at the same time, it’s super fun and does feel a lot like the ocean," says Sofia Mulanovich, ASP World champion.

The innovative SurfStream technology will be a great support for flat days in a country full of top-quality natural wave spots. Also, new surfers will be welcomed to the sport.

The ultimate wave machine has programmable controls and even displays a single 5’ barreling wave, with 20’ of face to carve on.

Watch how the surf arena works.
