Surfing in Sydney's west will be a reality when surf park Urbnsurf opens in Sydney Olympic Park in early 2019.

The new MCG-sized development is aimed at surfers of any skill level, and uses a leading wave-generating technology developed in Spain called Wavegarden to pump out 1000 two-metre high waves every hour.

LED lighting will allow visitors to surf day and night, whether you’re on a shortboard, longboard, bodyboard, kneeboard or stand-up paddleboard.

In addition to the 2.1-hectare lagoon and surfing academy, there will be a food and beverage precinct, skate ramps, playgrounds, rock-climbing and mountain-bike pump tracks.

Planning approval for Urbnsurf Sydney was granted in December last year, and construction activities are expected to commence by mid-2018. The facility should be open in 2019.

Urbnsurf parks are also expected in Melbourne and Perth.
