WAVE RIDERS GO WITH FLOW
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.
