Professional surfers and beginners rejoice! The world's biggest and most advanced artificial water waves park is due to open in Abu Dhabi early next year.

Surf Abu Dhabi will be the latest in the UAE capital's line-up of exciting recreational and sporting facilities. Located in Hudayriat Island, it will feature the world's longest ride, the highest ever man-made wave, and largest barrel.

While all of that may sound intimidating to beginners and casual surfers, it won't all be epic waves. The surfing park will also be friendly to all skill levels, from those just trying their hand at surfing for the first time up to elite athletes.

Designed in collaboration with the Kelly Slater Wave Company, the park was created to offer the very best conditions for surfers to train, compete, and partake in major sporting events.

"I’ve surfed hundreds of incredible waves across the world and this wave in Abu Dhabi stacks up well against some of the best waves on earth," said professional surfing champion Kelly Slater.

He added: "I’ve drawn on that traveling surf education to design the wave at Surf Abu Dhabi."
