The URBNSURF are a series of urban surf parks located throughout the Australian coasts in areas such as Melbourne and Sydney that allow consumers an alternative area to surf from the beach. The construction features a simulated ocean with realistic waves allowing those that live in a metropolis access to comparable surfing conditions without having to trek to the coast.

Each of the URBNSURF locations are designed to be of equal caliber to the beach and offer consumers waves that they would experience if they were at the ocean. The waves are recreated using Wavegarden technology that produces swells as large as five and a half feet for pro surfers and smaller, easier to catch waves at less than two feet. The experience offers an alternative place to enjoy the sport that is less crowded and equally as good.
