The Endless Surf technology is a pneumatics-based wave system, creating sustained wave heights of up to 2.3M across two key formats; a 13-second split peak (left or rights), and 25-second point break rides. The product is patented and owned by WhiteWater, a multinational giant of the waterpark business with over 40 years developing 5000+ projects specialising in pool construction and master-planning. 

The decision to part ways from our previous supplier flowed from a number of complicated internal and external factors. Wisemans development team has re-priced the project with preferred building partner, Erilyan and have updated trade cover, escalation, and contingency as of July 2022. The updated masterplan design requires less earthworks, water volumes and services, and provides a sympathetic and integrated environmental solution for the property’s topography. Since launching the Wisemans Surf Lodge Property Trust, managing risk, construction costs and maximising asset value has remained paramount for the project team.

The Endless Surf product generates over 2,500,000 waves per year on the main peak for the operator to monetise via the membership and events model. The operator's updated model is based upon ~70% utilisation. The base and turnover lease structure between the fund and the operator means as the operator increases their revenue, the turnover rent it pays increases and therefore the income available for distribution to investors in the WSLPT also increases.

With capital committed to-date and provisions for a construction debt facility to support the capital raise, there's a maximum 200 positions remaining to commence construction and the fund is anticipated to reach its capital target by October 14th, 2022.
