Surf Stream Park – American Wave Machines

I once tried the good old “Flow Rider” to get in that surfing fix and found myself eating crap while little kids zipped back and forth with ease. In fact, I did the splits when a fraction of my back foot hung to far off the rail and my foot was ripped out from underneath me.

But this is far better! It also features Rob Kelly and an old team-mate of mine from my area, Todd Holland.

Between this and The Wave Garden, wave pools and the ilk could have a brighter future.

    Met a hot surfer once in Bali from Florida and asked him how he got so good in hollow lefts he told me his local break was Orlando wave pool. He knew the guy who ran it and used to go with his mates after hours used to pump out there own music on the stereo, and have a great time. said it was more consistent than the real thing. Thought it was strange but cool get it where you can.

      I have surfed that place on many occasions. It is hard to ride. Not hollow at all but just hard to see (if you surf at night) and off. However, it is predictable so if you get a groove going you just repeat and repeat and repeat. The ocean is better but if you can’t there…then why not have something to tide you over!
