Man-made waves have existed for many years (as seen in the classic 80’s movie North Shore), but most of us doubted that we’d ever see anything that resembles a real wave.
Kelly Slater’s company has been working on creating a man-made wave for years and they recently released a video of a wave that shows a lot of promise.
Below is a video of Josh Kerr on one of his first waves in the new wave pool.
Rumor has it that the wave pool is in the Fresno area. That’s only a couple hours from where I live, so I hope the rumors are true.
They haven’t released any other other details, but it’ll be interesting to see how they structure the pricing and control the crowds once it opens to the public.
