nominated as Russia’s Leading Spa Resort by World Travel Awards.
PerfectSwell is an entirely new approach to generating large waves in pools
with the emphasis on wave quality and the surfing experience. With no moving
parts in the water, sophisticated computer controls modulate wave shape, ride
duration, frequency and energy efficiency. Analogous to a phased array design,
PerfectSwell wave size is unlimited. Three simultaneously barreling waves
across the width of the pool can be generated at intervals as short as six
The system includes innovative sanitation and a green heating system extending
the operating season with no additional energy usage. ‘For my resort, I want a
pool that will cater to active families and allow them to learn to surf. The
design is great for contests, events, and shows,’ said owner Victor Lipukhin.

Athletes and surf teams no longer have to wait for the perfect swell to practice. Rigorous conditioning and training can easily take place in a PerfectSwell pool. There is no waiting for waves. The first air-powered system to mimic ocean waves, AWM’s PerfectSwell Reflecting Wave Generator creates circular particle motion waves like the ocean, using proprietary technology capable of producing 10 maximum size barreling waves per minute. The PerfectSwell Phased Array Control system controls chamber firing patterns and sequences creating any wave breaking characteristic from mushy to pitching to timed aerial closeouts.
“To date, PerfectSwell is the most versatile system available globally with the most innovative technology providing the best user experience, ” says Bruce McFarland, President of American Wave Machines, Inc. “Our PerfectSwell technology can create an infinite variety of waves.
