The Hungarian company behind creek surfing, itself called Creek-Surfing, has joined forced with Turkish waterpark designer and manufacturer Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems.
Polin is now a global distributor for Creek-Surfing and the two companies will act in cooperation to introduce this unique, innovative product.
The greatest potential is the cooler European climate where winter sports are popular, as Creek-Surfing offers a solution to the seasonality of skiing and snowboarding. Creek-Surfing can be integrated into waterparks and/or amusement parks or can be a stand-alone attraction. It can also be used as a passive ride on two-seater inflatables.
The concept of creek surfing is based on a micro-terraced system. Several plastic bands are placed horizontally on a base plate, thus forming micro-terraces side by side. The water is first pumped up to the top of the creek, and then it fills the micro-terraces from top to bottom, forming micro basins. That shallow water enables people to brake and change direction – just like on snow-covered downhill courses.
