I believe we've already established that the business model is for the backwash to suck anyone that misses or falls on a wave under the tHumper?

I dreamed this way of creating a wave machine.

I swear.

Question is not of making wave. It's of making profit.

Oh really? Maybe they should be government funded, that way they wont need to be profitable.

Anecdotally, bookings at existing wave pools indicate there is demand.

Is it being pulled or dropped?

In my dream, you would fill tanks under water with air, lifting it. Then release the air and gravity would do your heavy lifting (dropping) for you.

Stab article says it's filled with rocks. So I imagine gravity is dropping it. Air pressure to lift it? Apparently a gasket blew. Not sure if it's broken beyond that.
