S&P rides the crest of the wave with indoor surf centre plan - image

  • Comment
Pool expert S&P Architects has been asked to design the first indoor surfing centre in Europe, which will be sited in east London.

The new Surfdome will feature restaurants, bars, cafés, nightclubs and hotel accommodation, and the practice is already eyeing up a plot for the scheme in Stratford City next to the London 2012 Olympic Park.

The centrepiece of the complex will be an indoor surfing centre, including a series of surfing wave pools, flowriders, climbing walls and 'extreme sports-influenced attractions.'

A main 75m-long surfing pool will boast waves of up to 3m high generated by computer controlled reefs.

S&P Architects director Chris Barr said: 'As leisure specialists, our appointment to design this major facility is hugely significant.

'Given that surfing is growing in popularity, we expect the venture to be a great success.'
