What is WAVE-MASTER?
There has been a recent surge of interest in recreational wave pool technologies. No longer need surfers travel half-way round the planet to find their perfect wave. At the heart of each wave pool is the wave generator, whose function is to create the waves themselves.
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.
Watch the video to understand how the laws of physics and hydrodynamics lead inexorably to the design of the perfect wave pool.
"Unlike all other existing and planned wave pools, the Wave-Master system has no compressed-air systems, hydraulics or pneumatics, no dangerous moving underwater profiles or expensive water jet systems. It's just a simple yet highly energy-efficient piston-type modular wave generator that exquisitely matches real-world ocean waves. It can produce single waves on demand, or new waves every fifteen seconds. It is this repetition rate that is head and shoulders above the competition." - John Baxendale
