What Surfing is at Revel Surf?

The Lagoon by Swell Manufacturing

The Surf lagoon is a natural ocean-like surf experience in a lagoon. Surf Sessions are booked by the hour with various wave types based on sessions. Expect to surf 12 – 15 waves per hour. Surf sessions simulate the ocean as you’re in the water the whole time, in a typical surf lineup. Lineup, surf, paddle back out and repeat.  Expect to surf both lefts and rights in your typical surf session.


Rapid wave by UNIT Surf Pool

The UNIT Surf Pool is a continuous rapid or stationary wave designed by UNIT Parktech. The rapid wave is a perfect combination of ocean surfing and wake surfing, where you ride regular surfboards and fins in a deepwater wave. At 33’ feet in width, it’s perfect for time on your feet, riding and linking turns, and progressing your skills. It’s also a perfect way to learn how to surf as it requires no paddling or “popping up.”
