A new wave park facility is coming to the city’s North Shore, bringing excitement to surfers and residents alike.

This multi-million-dollar project, announced today, will break ground later this year in Dairy Flat.

The new wave park, developed by global surf park creators Aventuur, will feature a world-class training facility, surf school, restaurants, and accommodation. The park will be powered by a seven-hectare solar farm and a Spark data centre, making it eco-friendly. Excess heat from the data centre will warm the pool, a first-of-its-kind innovation.

Trevor McKewen, spokesperson for Aventuur, highlighted the unique aspects of the project, emphasizing its renewable energy use and the benefits for surfers who will enjoy warm waves. The project’s cost is substantial, running into hundreds of millions of dollars, with significant contributions from Spark.

The surf park has already received resource consent, meaning construction can proceed without delay. The announcement event was attended by famous surfers Adrian ‘Ace’ Buchan and Glenn ‘Micro’ Hall, who expressed their excitement.

Mayor Brown also spoke at the event, reassuring residents that the project would not increase their taxes. He emphasized the local employment and business opportunities the park would bring, aiding Auckland’s tourism recovery.

Eager surfers will need to wait until summer 2026 or possibly the following year to enjoy the new facility. The anticipation is building for what promises to be a world-class surfing destination in Auckland.
