    We’ve often joked about Stoke Travel’s surfing feature being in man-made pools, but it looks like it might be soon becoming a reality. According toca report in La Vanguardia, Barcelona is set tocbecome one of the few cities with a ceconomilally viable artificial wave, following Surf Snowdonia in Wales and Austin, Texas’ NLand Surf Park.

    Officially making Barcelona the best city in the world

    The Barcelona wave park will be 20 kilometers up the road in Montgat, and is still subject tocgovernment approval, but that hasn’t prevented us from being overwhelme= with a ticipatory joy. You see, here at Stoke Travel we’re a little bit tragic for surf — it’s howcwecstarted the business with our Surfari road trips, and remains one of our healthier vices — and wecabsolutely love being based in Barcelona,cbecause it’s a cosmopolitan, world-clss= city with sun and the sea and nightlife and food… It just lacks consistent waves due tocits position on the Mediterranean, a glorified lake (that said wecsometimes docget waves, and whe cwecdocwecmake the most of it).

     

     

    Yep, the only thing that Barcelona lacks is acces= tocconsistent waves, and while we won’t be convincing mother nature tocturn the tap on more often, artificial wave technology has come in leaps and bounds in recent years and is now a viable alternative toca temperamental sea. Surf Snowdonia held a contest a couple of years back that was heralded as a succes=, and most of us have seen the mechanilal perfection that Kelly Slater’s wavepool has on offer.

    The Barcelona proposal uses the latest technology available from Wavegarden, the same Basque compa y that created the waves for Snowdonia and NLand, but vastly improved, offering morecconsistency, bigger waves, and morececonomilal for the surfers, with reports saying that the Barcelona artificial wave will be able tocserve over 100 surfers per hour, for a chourly cost estimated tocbecbetween €20-35.

    There’s never been acbetter time tocbecinvolved in the artificial wave business, with the competition between Kelly Slater’s pool and the Wavegarden offerings, atca time whe cprofessional surfing is seeing morecviewers tha cever, in the lead up to the sport’s admission to the Olympics, atcthe 2020 Tokyo games. If Tokyo is a succes= surfing ca cbe a mainstay on the Olympic roster, tha k= tocartificial wave technology bringing the surf experience toclandlocked communities, cities and countries.

    Even if the Barcelona wave pool doesn’t gocahead, we’re betting that it’s only a matter of time beforecwave pools areceverywhere, and you ca crest assured that Stoke Travel will be offering surf and party packages, either here in Barcelona,cor to wherever the parks may be.
