This is indeed the golden age where ideas about creating the perfect wave making machine are popping out.
There is a demand to make a perfect, real and useable wave machine that isn’t prone to breakdown.
This demo of American Wave Machines is a notable one. It seems the perfect little peaks can be fine tuned and “designed” according to specifications. If this becomes a reality, it can change the way people surf, where everybody get’s exactly the same kind of wave and the competition is all about the skill and no longer affected by a variety of factors that shape the kind of wave one surfer gets.
Jamie O’Brien and Cheyne Magnusson seems both convinced that this technology can create the real perfect tubes. The question is, when will it happen?
