It looks inviting, the color of the water, the waves pumping in short intervals, the ability to barrel; it’s pretty much what you’re looking for in a wave pool. This footage of Brazilian Grom Mateus Herdy in a solo session at The Cove in Spain reveals that the new Wavegarden tech is truly better than its predecessor in a sense that it gives better quality of waves and pumps waves faster. But it also leaves the question, does it produce world-class waves?
Based on the footage, the barrels are not as long and as perfect as what the Kelly Slater Wave pool has to offer. But it pumps waves faster than that of Kelly’s.
Is the Wavegarden Cove a real game changer? See for yourself and be the judge.
