Eastern Surfing Mag – New Deep-Water Standing Wave Technology
STANDING ROOM ONLY
Rideable waves come in all shapes and sizes. When most people think of riding waves, they imagine the ocean or a river wave. The folks at Aquatic Development Group are on a mission to remind us all that man-made waves can provide as much joy as mother nature. With over 40 years of water park industry experience, ADG has developed over 500 wave pools and systems across the world, and even boasts bragging rights on creating the movie set wave pool for the legendary “North Shore” movie.
EpicSurf produces a wave of water that can be adjusted from between 3 and 5 feet, with a footprint about the size of a tennis court. Rick Kane’s mind would be blown with this new technology! Developed and manufactured by the Aquatic Development Group with engineering and design support from Bombora, LLC of Seattle Washington, the EpicSurf wave concept was brought to life and made its debut in June of 2021.
ESM, along with a frothing crew from Surf Dreams Foundation of all ages, novelty king Ben Gravy, world champion skim boarder Blair Conklin, and Australian legend Ian Cairns converged on a small town north of Albany, New York to test out EpicSurf’s new technological masterpiece.
