The Scoop on That Amazing Artificial Wave

Feb 15, 2011
Outside Magazine

Wavegarden (Short) from wavegarden on Vimeo. released more photos, information, graphics, and videos about that glassy artificial wave that generated so much buzz earlier this week. And to make sure the buzz doesn't stop, they've also published quotes from pro surfers about it.

“Wavegarden has helped me to improve my technique to take on championships. This wave is a great tool for learning and for perfecting your style.”
Aritz Aranburu,
Professional Surfer, EUK

"Found a goofy footers dream yesterday!!!!!! Let me put it like this...the window never closes!!!!!!!!! hahaha."
Bobby Martinez,
Professional surfer, USA in Twitter

There's still a bit that's up in the air since the big online push today, like the unknown location of the wave in the videos. For now, it's enough that landlocked kids have a better option than elaborate swimming pools for drawing something cool into the backyard of their dream home.
