This is the first HD footage captured at the BSR Surf Resort, in Waco, Texas.
The facility debuts Perfect Swell, the wave pool technology developed by American Wave Machines (AWM). The artificial surf pool pumps waves in the three-to-eight-foot range, and three-wave sets.
Users can choose the type of wave they want to ride. The software is able to generate beach break, point break, or peeling waves.
The goal is to mimic the ocean and its waves. The result is breathtaking and compares well with Perfect Swell’s direct competitors Wavegarden and Kelly Slater Wave Co.
The video was shot by Scott Ellwood and his team, and clearly shows us the future of wave pools.
