We have reached out to different high end partners to develop our revolutionary technology that generates waves to surf on. With our background in the wave energy sector, we understand the hydrodynamics of waves as the same laws apply to the absorption and creation of waves. To have a clear idea of what different levels of surfers expect, we have enlisted the support of Lakeside Paradise. Founding father and surfing pioneer Frank Vanleenhove brings in years of surfing experience worldwide and extensive knowledge on surfers’ expectations of man-made waves.
“After chasing the wave pool evolution for many years all over the world, AllWaves appeared as a real revelation with unique and never before seen technology. Both sustainable and safe, AllWaves produces waves for everybody in a more natural environment than any other system.
AllWaves also presents a realistic financial plan when it comes to construction and commercialisation.
AllWaves will blow the minds of the surfing world and beyond!
After Belgian Beer and waffles, it is now time for Belgian waves!”,

The Vydraulics Group (VAPO) is a strong player in hydraulic power systems. They are a high-end partner with an international track record in the maritime industry. The offshore sector is characterised by high performance demands. VAPO understands the cost of failure, so they make sure energy efficiency, safety, high reliability, and sustainability are top of mind when designing and executing operations. Moreover, the group is also active in the leisure industry and understands our requirements in terms of delivering uptime guarantees to our clients.
Additionally, we can count on the Coastal & Ocean Basin (COB), a consortium of the Universities of Ghent and Leuven and Flanders Hydraulic Research Institute) to support us in the field of knowledge sharing and in-depth experiments. They have provided the scientific grounds for the AllWaves reef setup.
This collaboration initiative is facilitated by Blue Cluster, an independent Belgian organisation that groups private companies with the purpose of developing and promoting economic activities linked to the sea. Blue Cluster is recognised as a spearhead cluster by the Flemish government and focuses on several aspects of the sustainable blue economy, including blue tourism.
We furthermore receive financial support from Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship, a Flemish government agency charged with implementing the economic, innovation and enterprise policy in Flanders.
