The birth of inland surfing is relatively recent but wave pools are already stretching across the world.
The great thing about inland surfing is that it’s designed for all abilities. Less intimidating to novices than the open ocean and delivering more consistent waves for experienced surfers.
It’s a new era in surfing. We look forward to bringing you on the journey and to seeing the sport we love continue to grow, develop and thrive.
We believe surfing has the potential to improve the health of a nation. Our 160-metre surf lake will be powered by world-leading Wavegarden Cove technology and will be the largest in Europe. Capable of delivering up to 1000 perfect waves/hour, the footprint for our entire resort is an incredible 20,000 square metres.
The earthworks process prepared our site for the construction of our state-of-the-art surf lake - the centrepiece of our resort. During this process we consolidated and landscaped the quarry floor to provide a solid platform for the building phase to commence.
Malcolm Construction begins works onsite, with a brief to create Europe's Largest Inland Surf Resort. Project managed by our partners Doig and Smith, we begin building something truly exciting for Scotland and beyond which will inspire all who visit.
We move a step closer to realising our unique vision of a world-first ‘surf resort’ format, where people can completely immerse themselves in surfing and leisure for a short stay or a long break. We are granted permission for building our premium pods and luxury lodges around the Cove.
For decades, surfers have dreamt of a solution to the one thing stopping them from accessing the sport they love – consistent waves. Wavegarden technology can create some of the best waves imaginable, again and again. With permission granted by Edinburgh City Council, our prayers are finally answered.
Our ambition is to create a landscape-led site with natural habitat biodiversity, for which Craigpark Quarry is the perfect fit. This quarry, located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, provides a dramatic natural backdrop but gives protection from prevailing winds thanks to its natural amphitheatre shape.
Our epic journey begins. We partner with the world-beating Wavegarden, a Spanish wave technology provider with the sole objective of bringing inland surfing to Scotland. Tartan Leisure has secured Wavegarden rights to Scotland, meaning that Lost Shore Surf Resort will be one of its kind.
