Surfers could soon be able to catch a wave on the Gold Coast, even if the beaches aren't pumping.

News Corp has revealed a company's planning to build a high-performance wave pool at Stapylton in the city's north, with plans set to be lodged with council before the end of the year.

It's believed the state-of-the-art facility will use technology patented by surfboard maker Greg Webber, who reckons his design is even better than Kelly Slater's wave pool over in California.
