Remember the Subiaco Wavepool Proposal in 2015? Well, Melbourne is the latest target with Perth architects MJA Studios and Wave Park Group collaborating to bring us the newest proposed design. 

The location for what will be called Urban Surf is set to set up stumps next door to the Essendon Football Club HQ, a venue planners say it should unlock the sport of surfing to the city.

The design includes a skate park, playgrounds, bike tracks and a pro shop as well as three levels of waves for beginner, intermediate and advanced. The waves will be open all day and under lights at night with the wave generator using the most advanced Wavegarden technology.

So what do the locals on the Surf Coast around Torquay think about the development? We took the camera to the people on the weekend. See video above.
