New clip dishes more deets on full-size Boa Vista surf tank

PerfectSwell launched a new clip showing the now Instagram-famous Boa Vista wave pool commissioned by developers JHSF. According to PerfectSwell, it’s the company’s “longest, biggest, and most varied wave menu yet.”

Set to a backdrop of heavy construction, the six-minute video also shows off a new “double rider” setting where two separate waves launch from opposite ends of the pool and meet in the middle.

The Boa Vista Village wave pool is double the size of the tank in Waco. Currently, the famous American Wave Machines facility in Waco offers 120-160 waves per hour for 8-10 second rides. While this new pool design looks slightly different the thought of longer barrels is hugely appealing. (check Rob Kelly’s drainer in the beginning of this clip.)

Boa Vista will also include residential land plots, golf residences and The Surf Lodge Residences, designed by renowned architects Sig Bargamin and Pablo Slemenson. Part of the Boa Vista Village offering to residents is an 18-hole golf course signed by Rees Jones and an impressive tennis structure and arena for international tournaments. 

São Paulo is on its way to becoming the wave pool capital of Brazil, and South America for that matter. The city is the southern hemisphere’s most populous metropolis with 12 million inhabitants, and now all will be within driving distance of three wave tanks.
