The whole thing sucks utter balls by the sound of it. Sorry I was even remotely interested.

one day some rich euro kook will get his or her dreadlocks caught in the machine and that will be the end of it i reckon. might even be filipe toledo flying a tad too high and he gets caught up in it, limbs and locks and blood flying. poor filipe! kelly will go bankrupt and live out the rest of his bitter days in a cocoa beach trailer park, dreaming of life on mars.

If you went to the opening of the Vietnam Kelly Slater WavePool as a VIP(Thirroul surf legend and noted surf writer) would you wear an ironed shirt Lucky Al, or would you go al fresco?

I think the rot started with concrete swimming pools, or Ce-ment ponds as Elly May would have said. They are a prostitution of swimming! All swimming should be done in either ocean, rivers, streams or natural ponds, preferably nude, as nature intended.

Oh I imagine some people would be able to rationalise it. I can't. It makes me want to throw up, just a little bit.

i was just walking through the coles at palm beach, and the thought of this wavepool entered my thoughts. out of rage I kicked a toddler in the face and their head went flying off into the frozen peas section of the deep freeze.

It was just a little kidding, Steve.
I apologise though. Obviously, flippancy is not appropriate for such a very serious topic.

Given that the average ride goes for about 5 seconds and most surfers will never have a ride over 25 seconds in a lifetime of surfing, $10 (which is less than the price of a craft beer) for a really good 60 second wave seems not an unreasonable spend.
Bullshitt.

99% of QLD and NSW surfers who ride a pointbreak from time to time will have rides over 25 seconds.

Euro Kooks in Indo ride waves over 25 seconds regularly.
Well, I know I have Nick, but I live in within cooee of the world famous Qld/Nth NSW points. But I was talking about most surfers. OK though, let's say 35 seconds.
My goal is a k a day. So at 20k/hour thats about 180 seconds (can someone check my arithmetic).

I thought it was OK, as a wave pool is just an augmented swimming pool, but true dat, a nudie photo would have spiced it up.

yes, of course, and polished shoes. clean socks and underpants, too. and i would shave before i left the house. maybe even shampoo and condition in bottled water. do the twist under a spritz of my wife's chance by chanel which she almost never uses. roll my suit for dust. roll around in my suit for dust. wrap my one tie around and around my neck. wash my car and ask my neighbour to drive me in it. sit in his lap. be re-born as a dolphin. rock and roll. for sure.

I also also think, no I totally know this, I will never pay anyone for a wave, ever. I'll pay to fly to a spot where there's waves. I'll pay for accommodation near a wave. I'll pay for a board to ride a wave. I'll pay for wax and boards etc etc. I will never fcuken pay someone to make the wave for me. If that's where my surfing experience ends, well fcuken whacko.
This.

have you heard that expression "some things are sacred", godsavethequeen? what about the expression "there but for the grace of god go i?" "wouldn't be caught dead" - that's a good one. "your guess is a good as mine"? "piece of cake", one of my favourites. "able to eat pawpaw without a spoon" is not one you hear often, but it's a doozy.

He never said he'd knock back an invite to the wave tub, or a free pair of boardshorts.

If KS invited you Nick, would you let him 'pay' for your wave?
