Scott Bass: Veteran surf journalist shares his wave pool stories
On this episode of the WavePoolMag Podcast Nick Robinson speaks with veteran surf journalist and wave pool connoisseur Scott Bass. After his stint as Surfer Magazine’s online editor in the fledgling days of digital media, Bassy went on to develop one of surfing’s most core surfboard expos, The Boardroom. Along with a podcast focused on all things surf he also runs a vintage surfboard auction.
Through these platforms and other incarnations of surf work Scott has been fortunate enough to sample a wide range of wave pools. In this episode we get to experience the world’s surf park delights through the lens of a culturally astute lifelong surfer.
We get to chat about his experiences in the following pools:
• Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch
• Typhoon Lagoon in Disney World
• NLand in Texas (now closed)
• BSR in Waco, Texas
