Change the flight to a 7pm, and drop by the pool. Perhaps not a 7 degree winter afternoon in Melbourne though.

Spill the beans Nick. Not quite up to the hype?

Typical Nick Carroll attention seeking.

Not quite. But I'm not reporting gossip.

A mate of mine reckons it may cost $79/hour.

I'll give it a go for the novelty but at that price, and given it is about an 80 minute drive from where I live, I'll probably measure my visits there in years.

Size is a good three feet on take off grading down slightly after about 50 metres. Urbn surf are saying there will be three distinct waves: experts , intermediates and beginners, but apart from the proper wave I could only see a short crumbly reform about 1- 2 ft high further down the pool.
https://wavepoolmag.com/the-wave-bristo ... -patience/

The word is they had to dial back the "advanced" setting because too many poms were overestimating their abilities, falling off the advanced wave and getting in the way of the surfer behind. From what I saw there isn't enough juice in the first wave to get anything more than a dribble out of the reform - the so called intermediate wave. Melbourne has a few more generators than Bristol - but I think they'll have the same problem.

So Robbo and Surfing Victoria are in bed with Urbnsurf. Don’t think he mentioned that in his chat with Nick on RN. He was pretty positive about the tub. Now I know why.

I was invited to go to URBSRF's pool in Melbourne on Monday!

But I can't because I'll be in Hawaii. Sorry everyone you'll just have to wait for some future critical analysis.

I bet it felt good telling them you can't go because you're surfing real waves.
