WAVE RIDERS GO WITH FLOW

- JACINDA TUTTY

SURFERS won’t have to flee the city to chase the per­fect wave if three Gold Coast tradies can get their in­door wave pool off the ground. Lo­cal out­fit Sneaky Peaks Flow House are rais­ing funds to build Aus­tralia’s first triple pur­pose Flow Rider wave pool, en­ter­tain­ment and re­tail com­plex on the Gold Coast.

Part­ners Corey and Kris Vogt and Ryan Mul­h­ern have se­cured the rights to de­velop a wave house with a bar, re­tail and en­ter­tain­ing area on a 800sqm site, over­look­ing a pool gen­er­at­ing waves to be rid­den on a surf or body board all year round.

What they need now is the cap­i­tal to float their idea and a block of land to build on.

“We have raised 25 per cent of the over­all in­vest­ment re­quired,” Mr Vogt said. “For us to move for­ward we need to source in­di­vid­u­als that may have land op­por­tu­ni­ties for our venue.”

He said global cloth­ing brand Surf­stitch has ex­pressed spon­sor­ship in­ter­est and they are open to part­ners and in­vestors to get their $4.2 mil­lion idea pump­ing.

The pair hopes to open Sneaky Peaks Flow House in late 2016.
