My son had a couple of hours out there before it opened with his boardriders. He was frothing on it, as if he wouldn't be - he is 11.

I am in no hurry to travel back out there.

I haven’t seen anybody properly barreled on the barrel section.

I reckon it’s more fun to surf than it looks. It will need to be.

Probably right.

it's fun for kids and kooks and as a one off laugh for serious surfers.

Same as Melbourne.

It is by definition a novelty wave.

The more I look at this new Homebush wave pool less I’m interested in it

Seriously looks underwhelming

To be fair, its more solid then it looks on video. Stop watching clips of it mate, this isn't 2019. just go and try it if interested.

We’ve finished the “Iggy buys a twin fin series” now we’re on to the “Iggy goes to the wavepool” series.
Just takes a bit of setting the scene in the early episodes.

On the plus side with the wave pool, you can have 2 thoughts that don’t seem to go together. I’m going to try out this new surf spot. I’m going to get plenty of waves.

I do like the retro sci-fi helmets.

Because his chalky old bones won't allow him to fit into the tube ?

Here's a close-up:
