Wavegarden 2.0: on your marks, get set, surf!

The Wavegarden 2.0, updated model version of the artificial wave pool developed in the Basque Country, has been surfed and approved by a large group of pro surfers and surfing enthusiasts.

Dane Reynolds opens the new Wavegarden video. The perfect chest-high wave is fully ripped by the talented rider from Ventura. Taj Burrow and Gabriel Medina come next.

There are right and left-handers. Smiles, groms, bulls and girls riding all sort of surfboards. You can even bodyboard with someone on your back.

The Wavegarden concept seems up and running. Waves peel perfectly and end up in a plastic ramp that could easily be grass or sand.

The first wave pool seems to be 20 meters wide and 100 meters long. Slightly circular and with two separate tracks. It's probably better than many average rides out in the ocean.

Jadson Andre and Medina are even capable of getting barreled in a small line. The Wavegarden 2.0 is a success story. When will the public be able to ride it?

The Golden State boasts more than 1,000 miles of coastline, as well as some of the world's best surf breaks. And the Ventura County Coast is one of the original birthplaces of California surf culture.
