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.

Need to make the device far more science-fiction-alien-movie alien looking to aid in various marketing schemes.

Or not. Never sure which way to play such things.

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....
