Podcast Episode 4 Season 2: The new wave pool technology in Arizona
The company describes their system as a natural surfing lineup with a peak wave rather than a right-session-only or left-session-only option as found in many of today’s wave pools.
“Peak waves provide some of the most fun waves at Swell MFG locations,” says Matt. “Options to surf left and right to hone in frontside and backside skills and choice of take-off spot allowing deep drop in’s when wanting to challenge one’s skills.”
Matt Gunn became disillusioned with the total lack of waves after moving out to Arizona from his native California. Being starved of surf certainly drives you crazy, but would you be crazy enough to build a wave machine AND a wave park?
Matt’s certainly not crazy, but he’s really committed in a quiet, dedicated kind of way. Backed by a big hitters like Shane Beschen and others… well, he’s bound to succeed!
Good luck, Matt, it was good fun chatting to you and I’ll see you at the launch!
