In Conwy Valley a disused aluminium plant is going to turn into a wave park on August 1. Surf Snowdonia, which will open in August 2015, features the longest man-made surfing wave in the world. The owners are expecting in excess of 75.000 visitors per year. Surf Snowdonia will use the latest technology to deliver the longest man-made surfable waves on the planet. The consistent and perfectly formed barrelling waves will be variously 2m, 1.2m and 70cm high, and will peel for up to 150 metres. I will also feature retail, restaurant and café areas as well as a 50 metre glass-fronted viewing gallery. Entrance to the ‘dry’ facilities in the park will be free.
