The technology behind North America’s first artificial surf pool is fine-tuned to deliver three different waves at three distinct breaks named Reef, Inside and Bay.
As a result, NLand will pump waves ranging between 1.5 and 6.3 feet (0.5 and 1.9 meters). Josema Odriozola, the founder of Wavegarden, says that they are able to produce steep barreling waves in the 10-foot range, but they wouldn’t be cost-effective.
The engineers at Wavegarden already knew that the quality of the first waves could not be replicated in the subsequent waves because of the backwash and currents created in the wave generating moment. The good news is that this issue can now be mitigated.
