Surf Lakes Limited has invented a revolutionary, proprietary method of producing high-quality surfing waves in a controlled lake environment. The Surf Lakes technology will be capable of producing a variety of waves that closely mimic natural ocean waves. Furthermore, because of the way Surf Lakes works, not only will it have the lowest energy cost per wave compared to other technologies, but be capable of producing up to 2,400 surfable waves per hour. To our knowledge, this is more output than any current or proposed wave technology around the world.

Damn that looked shallow, be interesting to see how this thing develops. Their marketing copy though, they forgot to include "scalable", "synergistic" and "learnings"

looks promising if thats only half power or whatever. Could be fun, especially with peaks all around that thing.

they need to amp up the sound of Thumber coming down on the track. Make it super intimidating. Rev up the engine. That turbine structure to the right should be shooting fire out of it

Smart since you could produce at least three different waves from one movement of the machine.

Curious how they will control backwash in a round pool. There will have to be spillways, but getting that exiting water back into the pool? The limiting factor for wave quantity may be the time it takes for the pool to settle.

You can see two of the other breaks in the wider angle. Looks like a ton could go wrong with that giant plunger. shrug

I still don't see why people aren't content with surfing in the ocean....

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?

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.

ahahah same here!

i wonder if these wavepools will ever help sort out the crowd problem we have in europe. I'm sick of all these inland kooks snaking everyone and leaving their toilet paper in the cliffs while living the ~vanlife~ sick

This is actually a very simple design. Also, this could be the most energy efficient way to run a wave machine. Any energy source that could raise the giant plunger could run it.


This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.

Most recent stab article finally caught up with what the big break on the pool was. Apparently the big pipe that acts as the "handle" to the "plunger" is completely broken. It buckled and is unuseable at the moment. The guys who work there say "it's just a part, part's need to be replaced."

So we've got a wavepool that makes half the tour look like slow intermediates from the 80s, a wavepool Parko can't stick the drop on, and a wavepool with brain eating whatnot.

Just how low of rocker is required to make NLand fun?

just hear occy say there a pro wave, an advanced, intermediate, and a beginner wave, it can be made twice the size we see here. joel blew it on the pro wave.

the best part is occ said they can take a beginner and in a few months have them surfing the pro wave smile

[The ocean from Jalama to OB] is sounding better and better every day.

Note map below doesn't show Palm Beach County as having issues, but local PB news indicating otherwise.

I like the results of this technique (360 degree waves), but the plunger thing looks way too complicated and prone to breakage.

I'm going to be the Debbie Downer on this one.

That looks like sh*t. It's knee to waist high at best with no shoulder.

If the entire Billabong team can't sell the thing, I'm not sure who can.
