“When we first wanted to launch a wave park here in Australia, we wanted to launch one from the start here in Sydney’s West. To see that dream and vision come to life is really exciting. We can’t wait to provide everyone with the best waves and the most inclusive surf session they can imagine whether it be your first time on a board or as an experienced surfer.”

“Our key goal is to ensure that everyone who walks through the gates has the best experience we can offer them in the safest possible way. And that’s why we’ve been meticulous throughout the
construction to ensure that all our protocols or key criteria which is part of the URBNSURF DNA are met before we open.”

“What we’re building here is not only an awesome place for anyone to come and get awesome stoke during their surf session, but a venue that has something for everyone. This site will be a multi-use precinct, which has the capability for visitors and guests to enjoy food at any time in the day, use one of our working spaces for personal or group use, to come and see a live music event. The options are endless.”

“We’re pumped to open the park to everyone from Autumn 2024. Due to heavy rainfall that was unfortunately unavoidable during construction, we have experienced delays from when we first hoped to open it to the public… But it’s just like the saying goes, good things come to those who wait!”

“We know from our Melbourne URBNSURF site, that there is a market and appetite for Australians to come and enjoy a surf session at our parks regardless of where it is. Melbourne has countless interstate visitors who come through the gates every week, and many of whom are from New South Wales. We’re pumped to bring our experience and knowledge of running Australia’s first surf park and finally be able to bring perfect waves to Sydney’s West. Only 20 minutes from the CBD it really is going to be one of the best places to go for a surf in Sydney.”

“URBNSURF is the brand leader within the surf park industry, providing authentic surf experiences with diverse access points and we can’t wait to bring URBNSURF to Sydney.”
