Wave House Sentosa is the iconic 70,000 sq ft beachfront venue that offers exhilarating wave rides and the ultimate beach lifestyle experience in Singapore.
Wave House Sentosa is the fourth installation in an archipelago of global Wave Houses that stretches from Durban in South Africa, San Diego in California, Santiago in Chile, and Mallorca in Spain. This latest addition to the Wave House chain is located on the sandy beaches of Sentosa, a small island off the Singapore mainland. Singapore has long been a crossroads for surfers seeking the perfect waves at beaches around Southeast Asia, however the island itself lacks the giant waves which surfers long for. With its opening, Wave House Sentosa put Singapore on the global surfer destination map with its perfect and world famous 10′ FlowBarrel wave.
Invented by Tom Lochtefeld, the founder and CEO of Wave House (and a surfer himself), sheet waves pump water at a high speed over stationary curved walls to generate barreling and smooth waves.
The waveform is a proprietary composite membrane ride surface that is designed to absorb the energy of impacts. So rest assured – even if you wipeout, you’ll soon be back on your feet. This is a twenty-first century form of alchemy that has combined surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding and almost any sport wth the word board in it. Since the early 1990s, the world’s best board riders have cross-pollinated into flowboarding, taken as seriously as those from the mountains and the sea.
FOOD, DRINKS & RELAXATION
Wave House Sentosa is an oasis of good food and drinks – within reach of the hustle and bustle of Singapore, but a world away.
Wave House Sentosa celebrated its opening on 16 – 18 October 2009, becoming the coolest place in Sentosa to surf, chill out, dance and listen to DJs and Live Acts, all while interacting with like-minded individuals at the two fancy beach bars. These diverse experiences, played out on the vast spaces at Wave House Sentosa, makes this the perfect venue for all kinds of gatherings, ranging from private events like birthdays, to school trips and even corporate parties. The Wave House has finally brought to Singapore the ideal beach scene that it has always been lacking – the sun, sand, sea and never ending surf.
From the sunglasses on top of your head to the sandals on your feet, the Surf Shop at Wave House Sentosa is 2,000 square feet full of how to dress and what to wear for the beach, the sun and the sand.
The building is connected to the Wave Check-In Desk, so once you are signed up, before you drop in on the waves, pass through the wave sculpture and into this retail paradise. Find the perfect swimsuits and rashguards you need to ride the FlowRider® and the FlowBarrel®, or the latest fashions for lazing around on the beach, going in the ocean or getting some sun.
