Wave Master: the British wave pool technology

John Baxendale, the engineer behind Wave Master, promises a new artificial wave technology that produces 240 waves per hour, with no compressed air systems, hydraulics or pneumatics.

Who's going to build the ultimate surf pool? The number of artificial wave concepts hasn't kept growing in the last decade. The financial sustainability of surf parks has always been the Achilles heel of man-made surf.

But Wave Master Systems believe to have solved the problem of performance and energy efficiency with a piston-type modular wave generator that matches real ocean waves.

The Bay of Plenty Surf Team claimed their third consecutive National Scholastic Surfing Championship, at Fitzroy Beach, New Zealand.

With seven of their twelve surfers in the finals, The Bay of Plenty Surf Team claimed two division titles: Under 18 Boys and Under 16 Girls.

"Being in my last year of the Scholastics, it is pretty cool to win another title and to go three wins in a row with our team," underlined Jordan Griffin, who won the Under 18 Boys title.
