The Unit Surf Pool, an artificial deep wave pool in Germany, revolutionizes land locked surfing by offering a eco-friendly practice while making it safer for surfers in training. The wave operates on a natural body of water, entailing no environmental cost. It pumps up 15,000 L of water per second, while keeping the hourly energy consumption down to 340 kW. To put those numbers into a context for comparison, Unit Surf Pool proudly states that the stats are less than the full capacity of a Tesla sports car. As an added bonus, the product has proven to be highly cost-effective.
As the Urban Surf Pool is transportable to any place in the world, land locked surfing can sustain and extend surf culture to countries and cities that do not necessarily have their own coastline.
