Noticed that too.
Wave frequency will be the key if the thing is to ever work, commercially at least.

Josh Kerr on a twinnie. I don't think the pros are faking how much fun they are having.

Stephs wave is pretty sweet
we are the angry mob
We read the papers everyday
We like who we like, we hate who we hate
But we're also easily swayed

Even at 4 minutes I'm sick of seeing it already.

I'll bet if you got one at the point that broke that consistently for that long you'd cream your pants

Great place to test boards and fins.
otherwise boring as a pommel horse to watch.

I do wonder whether wave pools will allow a more 'objective' testing of board and fins. Remove the biggest variable. Although which testers will want to go to a wave pool in the middle of nowhere rather than some tropical idyll

They will also be great for training, although like a bowling machine in cricket, it will have its limitation given the real world isn't predictable

Exactly, training with predictability for a pursuit that relies on adaptability to the constantly changing could be counter productive

I see syd and melb are getting a wavegarden pool in next 18months. syd pool at homebush lol
that will end up like in2ski. skiing a moving carpet for $85hr..... and people whinged about the
ski fields being 120 a full day. lasted abit over a yr. I took my daughter there to check it out. said they
were really busy id have to book in. there were 5 people using it, and as many staff in a id guess
500m2 factory. certain to fail and it did. this wavepool at homebush is worth a few mil. cant see much
ROI in that.

i'd be scared i'm gonna fly out and hit the bridge ... even though that's probably impossible, but still hard to stop that perception from where he is.

I've heard they're gonna install mirrors along the track so you can watch yourself surf
