Designing, predicting and visualizing surfing waves.

Founded in 2005 as a spin-off of Delft University of Technology, working together with WaveLoch since 2007 and developing new technology with our partners in Silicon Valley since 2011, SurfReefs is now combining our knowlegde of ocean waves, using today's new technology, in part derived from new achievements in science and building on recent advances in graphics computation to design, predict and visualize surfing waves. It's a disruptive technology!


Our Mission

Our mission is to combine our knowlegde of ocean waves and using today's new technology to make surfing a supreme pleasuring experience for everyone around the world, from rookie to pro, whether you live in proximity of the ocean, or thousands of miles inland. 

I could not help concluding this man had the most supreme pleasure while he was driven so fast and so smoothly by the sea.
— Captain James Cook
