Artificial Night Surfing

Wavegarden tests its new light technology

Say goodnight to paddling in once the sun sets, because the future of night surfing is here and it is bright! At least for those close to wave pools. Wavegarden is testing out a new technology that allows for complete control of underwater lighting. The test involved figuring out the best combination of light coverage, intensity, and color that would optimize the reflection of the wave. While this light technology is still in its early trials in Spain, that’s not to say it won’t be making way to the soon-to-be massive 15-acre wave park in Texas or at a wave pool popping up near you.
