Founded in 1991 by Wave House founder Tom Lochtefeld, and now the world leader in human generated wave technology, Wave Loch has more than 200 FlowRider® and FlowBarrel® sheet-wave attractions installed around the world in water parks, hotels, retail malls, cruise lines and elsewhere. Based on proprietary intellectual property, Wave Loch attractions are thrilling, safe and appealing to both the participant board rider and profit driven clients alike. Wave Loch creates an authentic lifestyle expression through its technology, providing clients a long-lived return on investment that exceeds the revenue generated from the ride itself.
Surf Loch™ is a technology company also founded by Wave House CEO Tom Lochtefeld, offering a new kind of surfing wave pool that immediately absorbs excess wave energy and allows many waves per minute, and not minutes per wave as seen in other surf pool attractions. SurfLoch WaveSystems™ innovative surf pool designs offer: consistent, quality waves with unprecedented frequency in the smallest physical footprint, and with the greatest energy efficiency. While the few surfing wave pools in existence have struggled to make ends meet, our sister company, Surf Loch, has dedicated over 10 years to the development and refinement of its proprietary technology to make what was once infeasible, now financially viable and ready to deploy. Available in a variety of designs to match your business model and customer base, and available in three aquatic systems: pool, lake and lagoon.
