“I’m 100% positive our team built the best wave then anyone’s ever made it’s a freak of technology”. – Kelly Slater (does this mean you and Greg Webber are now working together – and your riding his boards?)

All wave pools and wave generators built to date have experienced major difficulties. After spending eight years and several million dollars on an aborted attempt to build a wave pool in Orlando, Florida, one well known engineer commented, “Without any doubt, perfection is achievable … but without quality waves off the generator, you can never get perfection in the pool!”
Clearly, that perfect wave generator is elusive, but, led by the vision and ingenuity of John Baxendale, Wave-Master have created a technology for generating the perfect wave on demand. For millions of surfers around the world this is an exciting development that promises to make a reality of what has appeared an ambitious fantasy for decades.
“Prototype surf pool, creating waves with human energy. This pool is incomplete and will need support from those wanting to see progress. $70 000 AU was used to get to this stage, another 26k to get to 20 meter long waist high barrels with gromit surfers in them.” – Fred’s Wave Maker
