In a paddock in Central Queensland, professional surfers and body boarders have spent the past two weeks training at a world-first wave pool prototype.
The Surf Lakes pool, half-way between Rockhampton and Yeppoon, generates five different types of waves for surfers from beginner to professional skill levels. The machine-made peaks are the result of new technology on display at the site and it’s got the pros excited.
