How we Make Waves
The History Behind EpicSurf’s Wave Systems
ADG has been a leading company in the world of surfing waves and wave machines since the early days when man-made wave pools first hit the shores of North America. ADG is responsible for much of what is considered “standard” in the industry today and no other company in the industry has tested, implemented, and developed more advanced technologies in the world of waves than ADG.
In the 1970’s and early 1980s, with the launch of the first recreational hydraulic and pneumatic wave systems in North America, ADG’s pools featuring their patented WaveTek wave systems, proved that with the right combination of wave technology and pool bathymetry, surfing in man made pools was indeed possible.
From the movie set of the infamous North Shore surf classic, to developing the wave systems that hosted the first pro-inland surf events at Oasis and Wild Rivers Water Parks, ADG’s waves have been making a splash in the surf industry since it’s inception.
A Wave of Innovation
The history behind EpicSurf’s wave system includes ADG’ s wide ranging portfolio in the field of manufacturing, engineering, design, and build of over 500 wave systems that have been installed in projects across the world.
In addition to waves for recreational wave pools and surf pools, ADG has brought their craft and abilities in creating phenomenal waves to other industries. Films like Life of Pi and Master and Commander have relied upon ADG’s cutting-edge technology to create epic cinematic ocean scenes.
ADG has also lent their talents to zoos and aquariums around the world, developing the innovative technologies needed to replicate real-life ecosystems for sea life. Their work can be seen at many top locations across the world, including Ripley’s Aquariums, the National Zoo in Washington, DC, the Melbourne Zoo in Australia, and at Sea World in Orlando.
Making Waves Around the World
With the continued development of new applications for stationary surf waves, surf pools, boogie boarding pools, and more, ADG’s wave systems continue to make epic strides. As a company that not only engineers and manufactures the technology, but also designs and builds the pools, and often the parks, that accompany them, they have more experience and know-how than any other wave manufacturer in the world today.
From their 45,000sqft manufacturing plant at their headquarters in New York State, to their in-house planning, engineering, and construction teams that, together, have created over 100 indoor and outdoor waterparks, no other company in the industry can deliver a project – whether a full design-build park or a single wave system product – like ADG.
